I have made some modifications to my dock because I generallly just want it to be transparent. This way the icons will just kind of lay on top of whatever I'm working on. It looks nicer, at least in my opinion. The problem is that by default, windows cannot be expanded below the level of the dock. You can try it yourself. If you drag the bottom-right corner of a sizeable window, it will not go below the dock. I really hate it. Can anyone help? Also (for bonus credit): Anyone know of a good way to move the trash off the dock onto the desktop? And to change the colour of the arrows pointing at the apps that are open? Thanks all!
