    Hi everyone. I am new here and I am not completely sure of what has happened to my Mac.
    I wanted to check if I could move the Documents Folder to the dock... I misplaced it and it ended up in the bin... I went to open the bin to move it back but it is not there... :eek:Where can I find my folder? Many thanks to everyone

    Well, it is simply not possible to move the Documents Folder that is in YourUserName Folder (aka the "Home" Folder). The OS will not permit it.

    So, you haven't Trashed that folder. If you created a new folder and called it "Documents" and placed it somewhere "more convenient" for you, then you're on your own.

    The OS-provided Documents Folder should be found following this path: HD/Users/YourUserName . . . Of course, I don't know your user name, but you do.
