    I hope they fix that. If you drag your desktop icon to the dock and get rid of the desktop icon, there is no directory.

    I don't want my games on the desktop, and it would suck to have to find the game directory every time to drag to the dock.

    But if you don't want game aliases on the desktop, wouldn't the easiest way be to launch Steam and pick a game? Either that or put a self created Game Folder in ur dock and place aliases for all your games there.

    I think it's time the Mac Gaming forum to be renamed the "Steam and Starcraft 2 Beta Forum."

    There's nothing to fix. The dock only contains references to real files on your file system. You remove the files then the references become useless.
    Move the shortcuts elsewhere (say, in /Applications) then drag them to the dock.
    How difficult is that? :rolleyes:

    While we probably have a couple too many Mac Steam threads, I'm happy to take that versus fingers-in-your-pie moderating. MacRumors- thumbs up! :)

    That's kinda what I did, created a "Games" folder in my home folder, and dragged that onto the dock. All game shortcuts go in that folder, so I have all my games on the dock. Not too hard.
