Removing SkyDrive from dock

Hey Guys,

I am probably being really stupid and just can't see what I am doing wrong but I am trying to remove the SkyDrive icon from the dock but keep it still running in the background like the Dropbox/Google Drive client.

Microsoft gave these instruction on here: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...llReplies#tabs

I have typed this into terminal: 'defaults write /Applications/SkyDrive.app/Contents/Info.plist LSUIElement 1' which is what is on that page but still can't get rid of the icon.

Can anybody point out to me what I am doing wrong please?

Thanks

Are you trying to completely remove it? Or just from the dock?

Try stopping the service. Then drag the dock icon off the dock onto the desktop. Then restart the service.

This worked perfectly for me, closed SkyDrive first, then ran the terminal command, followed by running SkyDrive again from launchpad. SkyDrive icon is still in the menu bar at the top bot no longer sits in the Dock as a running app.

Typical Microsoft to think that all running apps should sit on the "Start Bar"
