Understanding the Dock

The Dock was one of the most revolutionary parts of the original Mac OS X desktop, and it remains one of the most noticeable aspects of the OS under version 10.4. If you want to master Mac OS X, you should learn to take full advantage of the Dock's capabilities.

The Dock provides you with information about, control over, and customization of Mac OS X and the applications and documents with which you work (see Figure 5.1).
