No Undo For Dock Changes
Unfortunately, if you accidentally take something off the dock, there is no undo, but even though it’s easy to bring back the icon you lost from the dock, and although it’s not entirely damaging to the system to lose a dock icon, putting things back the way they were does make a strain on your usual work flow, especially when you’ve gotten used to the order of icons and dock size you’ve set for yourself.
Dock icons are so easy to set up, but unfortunately also so easy to break down … so when your family members, friends, kids, or even yourself play around with your Mac, it’s a common woe that an icon may go missing because of an accidental click, and your icons may go poof to oblivion. There are also times when you might accidentally hit the dock and drag it out and change the size you’ve grown accustomed to: it can either go extremely large, or extremely small for your taste.
Bringing lost items back is fairly easy; simply drag the icon from your Applications folder back to the Dock. Resizing the dock to your liking is also easy to adjust, simply drag it to a size you see fit. However, having to go through this over and over can become a tedious and frustrating thing to have to do, and many have wondered what the best way is to prevent these situations from happening at all in the first place. This article will help you solve this dilemma: by locking the dock. Below are a few ways to make this happen.
