Mac OS: Putting icons in the dock

To put a program in your dock:
1) double-click ‘Macintosh HD’ icon on your desktop
2) click Applications folder
3) click/hold on the desired program and drag it down to the dock – place it between two other icons and they will move apart to make room for it; let go.

To put a shortcut to a program on your desktop:
1) double-click ‘Macintosh HD’ icon on your desktop
2) click Applications folder
3) right-click on the desired program and select Create Alias. Drag the newly created alias onto your desktop. DO NOT DRAG ACTUAL APPS ONTO THE DESKTOP, ONLY THEIR ALIASES; the original program should stay in the applications folder because problems often arise when they are relocated.
