One of the great things about the the OS X user interface is its ability to give users ultimate access to the space on their desktop. Although the Dock is a great way to quickly launch and see what applications are running, it sometimes can get in the way.

To get the most real estate out of your desktop, try hiding the Dock:

  1. Click Apple and then select Dock
  2. Select Dock Preferences
  3. FinderScreenSnapz001.png

  4. When the Dock Preferences window opens, check Automatically hide and show the Dock

After you’ve made the selection your Dock will hide off the screen. Move your mouse to where the Dock usually resides and it will re-appear.
