    HI members, back in the summer I caused a folder on my dock to go up in smoke by trying to merge it with a dvd icon. I know that this is a permanent default stack folder. Being new to mac i'm trying to put this back. When it went up in smoke I found the contents in the finder window under documents. I want to leave it their and create a new stack for my dock. This is the best place to get info.

    Drag the Documents folder from the Finder window onto the right side of the Dock.

    By doing what was suggested above, it will create a dock stack without making any modifications to the original folder or its location at all. That is just the method of putting things in your dock- if you drag a folder to the right side of the dock it will create a stack.

    The same is true for adding applications to the left side- drag an item to the dock and release and a new icon (which is essentially an alias) will be created in the dock, leaving the original exactly where you drug it from.
