    Open up a new finder window, go to your home directory, and drag the Documents folder down into the dock.
    Like so:

    Open Finder, locate your Documents folder and drag it to the Dock.

    Drag it from the Finder (Users / YOU) to the right side of the Dock, right clicking the icon on the Dock will give you some appearance options.

    Ha, was faster than you two. :p


    Also have a look at the following links, as the information presented there might be helpful in your future endeavours into Mac OS X and could clear up initial confusion and may even prevent harm to your system or your files.

    Well I see you are set up for people asking questions!

    And by the way, what do you mean you were faster? :confused:

    The :p was made as a sarcastic remark, as I was slower than you, and often we read people editing their post after they saw that they have been "beaten" in posting. So my remark is more meant as tongue in cheek.

    What do you mean "set up for people asking questions"?

    Hey be nice, it's only just hit midday here, and I'm not quite awake yet. :D


    Well clearly he has all his lovely formatted links and pictures there ready for anyone asking questions which could be answered in other places.

    No, he just checked the "Use lovely formatted links and pictures" option in System Preferences. :D

    It's well past midnight here, so no worries.


    That is just a copy of GGJstudios idea of having those answers to FAQs already at hand, because often the same questions get asked over and over again.

    Also while this thread asked about a particular problem, it seemed to me, that the OP might need some additional information on how Mac OS X works, if something "simple" as using the Dock needed to have a thread of its own.

    Given the "beginner question" I'd suggest right clicking (or control clicking) on the Stack icon and exploring the options presented. You can change them as often as you want, no worries.
