    Hi everyone,

    Finally made the move to Mac!! I've been finding my way around it but i dragged 'Applications' from the Finder side bar to the Dock hoping to have a short cut on the Dock but it did a puff of smoke or something like that and disappeared!!:eek: How can I get it back on the Finder sidebar?

    Did you try dragging it back? ;)

    Go into the finder. Click on Macintosh HD in the sidebar. Find Applications in the list of directories. Drag Applications to the sidebar.

    If I am reading this right, you simply want to put an Applications folder icon in your dock. If that is the case then just open a window to your hard drive and drag the Applications folder to your dock, but make sure you are dragging it to the right hand side of your dock-- to the right of the dividing bar. It will then make it a "stack" in the dock.

    If you don't care to have it show up like a stack and would prefer it to look like a normal folder, click and hold it on the dock and a list will pop up. Select "Display As Folder" rather than "Display as Stack" and that should take care of it.

    Excellent, that's sorted it out. Thanks for your help!
