    I reinstalled my Mac OS, Maverick. How do I add the Applications folder to the Dock? When I try, it looks as if all my apps are being copied to the newly created Dock icon for Applications, because of the blue progress bar under the icon. And it seems to be stuck as it has not moved in quite awhile.

    You should be able to just grab the Applications folder in Finder and drag it to the Dock right next to the trash can. I just did mine and there was no delay at all on 10.9.2.

    How are you going about it? ...if according to the above post, that behavior is not normal.
