Declutter the Dock

Last updated September 06, 2010 - Send Feedback

Rule: get rid of cruft you don’t use; it just degrades the experience and causes visual confusion.

The dock contains all kinds of cruft that I don’t need, or that I don’t need immediate access to. Right-click or control-click on undesirable characters to Remove from Dock. You can always put something back later if you decide you want it; drag it back into the dock.
