How Do I Move The Dock?


I don't like having the dock on the bottom of my screen. Can I move it or make it smaller?

There are two ways to manipulate the dock in Mac OS X 10.6.

First, go to the Apple Menu on the top left of the screen and select System Preferences. Click on the Dock panel. You can then adjust the size, magnification, and position of the dock.

Or, look to the left side of your dock. There is a separator that divides Applications from Folders and Trash. Hold control while clicking on the separator to bring up Dock settings. You can also hold command while dragging to adjust the size of the dock.
