    Hi. I just got a MacBookPro, and i was kind of disappointed... I have seen many videos on youtube where when they drag their mouse over icons on the dock, its like a wave. The icon the mouse is over is bigger than all the others.

    Well, on my Mac with Snow Leopard, all that happens when i put the arrow over an icon, the name of the program pops up over it.

    How can i get it as a "wave" as i call it? Please help, i have NO clue what so ever.... :(

    Open up System Preferences, the open the Dock selection.

    You'll want to check the box beside "Magnification" and then adjust how much you want it to magnify (or wave).

    EDIT: Got beat, sorry for double-posting the answer.

    You know, it's pretty self-explanatory how it works, you could've have played around with dock settings yourself and figured out which did what.

    this, to me, is why so many of those 'new to mac-people' are so god damned annoying

    they buy a mac for the wavy dock

    and believe me, this kid is no exception

    That's kind of harsh, don't you think?

    i readily admit it's a blatant generalization, if anything

    but harsh? no

    It is a generalization, but I think one that is true. I'm not offended by it, but I can see that some might be. When I got my iMac in June/08, I bought Leopard; the missing manual and Leopard for dummies. I used them for 1/2 a day.

    This is a resource that 'newbies' will come to and will appear as 'new'.

    We were all Mac virgins once.

    For me, when I just got my Mac, the magnification was something I just loved to play with. I moved my mouse over the icons and enjoyed how it looks.
    And until today, I still have that enabled,... :)

    When I bought my first Mac, the first thing I did was to explore DEEPLY the Preference app (and panes).

    I do the same thing with mobile phones.

    It takes a couple of minutes after all.
