    Hi i'm completely new to macs and just got a MBP for school. Well, I was trying to clear out my dock and put in some new apps when I accidently pulled the application folder out. Okay thats fine, I searched for it and found the right one. But when I pulled it out to put onto the dock it has the address book icon on top of it. I cant get it off. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

    I assume this is Stacks you’re referring to.

    Right click on your Applications folder in the dock. Go to ‘Sort By’ and select another way to arrange it. You have it set to sort by ‘Name’, which will primarily show your “Address Book”, as A’s are predominant in alphabetical order.

    If I right click the folder it just opens it.

    Have you enabled right clicking? Ctrl + left click, two-finger click/tap, or System Preferences > Trackpad should help.
    Can you right click on other folders or icons in the Dock?

    Then you aren't clicking properly.

    Hold down 'control' then click.

    I don't have a mouse but the control and right click worked. Thank you guys. I have it enabled now. I guess I thought it was automatic.

    Someone should do a statistical analysis of thread topics / troubleshooting questions. This one would be in the top five, for sure. (for frequency)

    Along with "deleted application from the Dock or even the Applications folder" and what is eating all my HDD memory besides my porn?" and "I have a virus, my Mac does too".
