Resetting the dock

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to reset the dock icons so that they appear in the same way as they did when my Mac was first turned on?

Not automatically, but you could just look for a stock image from Apple.com or elsewhere of a "new" Mac screenshot and see what icons were in it and put them back manually.

 

EDIT: Here, I even found a picture for you: whatnav_hero_20090824.jpg

User > Library > Preferences > com.apple.dock.plist

 

trash that file. Log Out and log back in. and the dock will be returned to it's original state.

Nice, I hadn't even thought of that.
