    Hello,

    I have dual monitors setup and i was wondering if there is a way to move just the dock to the bottom of the second monitor?

    Open System Preferences and go to display. In the arrangement tab, put the second monitor below the main monitor.

    I have tried with no luck on Tiger and Leopard :/
    Now with the size of my new screens i wouldn't want it all the way over there.

    That won't work because the cursor won't move between the screens seamlessly you would have to drag the window up instead of sideways like the screens are actually arranged.

    You didn't happen to mention that in the original post.

    Why do you want the dock on the bottom of the non-main screen? Or is it that you just want the dock on the second screen? If it is the latter, you could position the dock on the right rather than the bottom.

    Here's something else you can try:

    Normally, you can move the dock from the bottom of the screen to the left or right by shift+clicking on the divider (the line thingy that separates the space for applications from the space for folders/files in the dock), and dragging to another part of the screen.

    What if you try shift+click dragging to the other MONITOR?
