Mac Tip of the Week: Removing a Program From the Dock!

Are there programs (applications) in your dock that you hardly use? Would you like to remove them?

The Dock
The Dock
The dock is much like the Desktop in Windows. It provide shortcuts to your most used applications.  When you first get a Mac, the Dock comes with a default set of shortcuts, but it probably includes programs that you hardly use. To remove applications from your Dock, follow these easy steps.

Kudos to Ann Alderman, Chair of the Arts and Humanities Dept., for guessing this week’s tip! She emailed me about how to do this, in response to last week’s tip on how to add programs to the dock.
