    I just got a MAcBook Air 2 days ago. I accidentally dragged everything out of my dock and it poofed into the air. How do I get them back to default?

    Just find the apps, documents or whatever you want in your Dock, and drag them onto it.

    Apps on the left hand side of the divider, documents and folders on the right.

    go to your applications folder from finder

    then simply drag the apps you want (by clicking and holding) to your dock and you're done :)

    Take a look at the dock on this page:

    http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/software.html

    That should be it:

    Finder (automatically included?)
    Launch Pad
    Mission Control
    App Store
    Mail
    Safari
    Facetime
    Address Book
    iCal
    iTunes
    Photo Booth
    iPhoto
    System preferences

    Applications
    Downloads

    It certainly does answer how to get back the folders that were removed.

    Restoring apps to my docks.

    Anyway I got most of the apps back from the launchpad I'm not sure if I have all of them. Here's is what I have, also I don't need them in order.

    Finder
    Launchpad
    Mission Control
    App Store
    Safari
    Mail
    iTunes
    Garageband
    Photobooth
    iMovie
    iPhoto
    System Prefrences
    Address Book
    iCal

    Are these all the default ones or am I missing some or did I put some that are not the default?

    You can also add any app to the Dock simply by right-clicking its icon when the App is open and selecting Keep in Dock. You don't have to have all the default apps in the Dock, unless you choose to.

    Out of curiosity, would time machine restore them?

    I've never restored from time machine before but it backs up all the time.
