How can you get back the '@' on your dock that is direct access to the internet?

    It seems that my sister 'accidentally' 'misplaced' my '@' (located near the trash on the dock where all the apps are located) and now my quick and convenient manner of accessing the internet is gone. Does anyone have any idea of how to get it back?? It's been 20 minutes and I'm already really pissed! :apple:

    Can't you just open safari? If you drag the page icon from the URL bar into the dock it will turn into a web url icon.

    Sorry I don't mean to hijack this thread. But can you tell me how you are drawing circle and the line on the screenshot? Thanks.

    I just asked/learned this yesteday haha. Just open up the preview app on your mac and then use the annotations button. I customized the tool bar to have it's own icon. I personally have to hold and click to get it to work. Look.

    you could always take the book mark icon copy it, then paste it as the safari or firefox icon if you really wanted that @

    It's red by default. You can press command + shift + c to change the color. I googled and just found a great guide here.

    I'm confused, what has Apple made so difficult for you?

    How can you compare Preview to Paint? They serve totally different purposes. If you want to annotate screen captures use something like Skitch or LittleSnapper.

    it takes hours to start ps on my comp though, a quick and simple app would be nice. Skitch you say?
    Hows about... KIDPIX! YEAH!
    Also, with the little @ icon on your dock, why not just use a bookmark in safari firefox?
