    I accidentally removed the Mac OS X icon from my Dock. You know, the one that took you to an Apple page when you clicked it. It is originally located near the Trash.

    I rarely used it, but I will admit that I admired it for its vanity, for it's "being there." In other words, I want it back!

    :D

    You can make a new one by dragging any URL you want to the dock. Or else you can find the com.apple.dock.plist and delete it, and then restart the dock (open Activity Monitor and find the Dock process and Force Quit it, or else open Terminal and do "killall Dock"), in which case you will end up with the original dock configuration.

    Visit whatever page it took you to (using Safari) and drag the favicon to the Dock beside the Trash. :)

    lol i deleted it one time on accident too and was upset. i actually figured it out right away how to get it back (macs are so easy... just drag and drop).

    i have since then replaced it to make room for more icons on the dock w/o looking too cluttered
