    Does anyone know where the default Dock settings are stored? I want to be able to add Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to the Dock when a new user is created. So in other words I want Word, Excel, PowerPoint, as well as others added to the Dock by default. So this is why I'm asking where the settings are for the default Dock settings. I imagine its a hidden folder, but I'm not even sure where to look in the system folder. I know that it has to be in the system folder somewhere, but like I said its probably hidden.

    Also I FINALLY got my Macs to log into my Windows Server and for some reason when I log out after I make changes it will not save those changes. So when I log back in it goes back to the default settings.

    Any Suggestions would be helpful!

    Duff-Man says.....if you look in system/library there is a folder called "User Template" - it does not contain a dock pref file but perhaps if you create a user with the dock config you like you can copy the plist file into the template? I have not tried this so proceed with caution....oh yeah!
