    For some reason, I can't resize my macOS dock. The small line towards the right side that allows resizing doesn't do anything, and the size slider in the settings application is grayed out.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    The terminal commands are nice to have, but typing all those commands is a royal pain. You can get one-click access to all those commands and a lot more via Onyx (Free).

    I just copy/paste those commands, no pain at all.

    I use Onyx and have made some small fixes and tweaks (I need "half-star rating" in iTunes, for example). I don't have to google when I need some deep system fiddle; no pain at all, and a joy to use.

    Interesting, first I have heard about this utility. Can you post a few more screenshots? What is under utilities and files? Not much information on their website. A lot of others using this?

    The developers of Onyx also put out Maintenance and Deeper, each are just easier to use utilities parted out from the main app "Onyx".
    I find myself going to these apps first because they are quicker for me to use and get the job done.
    Having said that, I do have all three Utilities in my arsenal...

    TONS of people using Onyx. It's probably one of the most popular free apps for the Mac in OS X history. It essentially takes hundreds of little tweaks, customizations and maintenance scripts that the Mac can either do on its own or by you knowing what the commands are and typing it in the Terminal and puts it all into an organized GUI.

    The app is perfectly safe (you specifically tell it to do tasks, it does absolutely nothing automatically) so you can open it to check out all the things it does, and it's free so it costs you nothing to try.
