Question about MacOSX Dock icons [Nov. 23rd, 2007|01:59 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I'm setting up a load of PCs on a network, something I've done many times before ... and one new Mac, something with which I'm rather less familiar.

On this Mac I've now installed some applications, and they've turned up as anticipated in the Applications folder.

Now, how do I make their launch icons appear in the dock? And how do I make that appearance become default behaviour for any new users who log in? (it's inheriting user account data from an active directory domain).

Answers of the form "click on this, then click on that ..." are acceptable, but so also are answers of the form "open a terminal window, and ..." or "create a domain group policy object, and ...".

Thanks in advance.

The first question is easy. Simply drag the applications to the dock and they'll stay there permanently. You can remove dock items the same way, and reorder them as well.

I've never used more than a single account on my Mac so I don't know how to answer the second question. The Accounts control panel (in System Preferences, which is part of the dock's default configuration) allows you to set login items - applications that start up on login - but that's not the same thing.
