Stacks are a really handy way for you to access everything you want on your Mac without having to navigate though your hard drive. By helping you to quickly get to the files you regularly use, stacks can make your school or work life much simpler. They’re also very easy to set up and organize. Just follow these instructions and you will have a custom stack in no time.
- Make a folder somewhere in the Finder. This is done by clicking File in the menu bar, then selecting New Folder, for those of you who are new to the platform.
- Drag everything you want to that folder. This can include documents, videos and applications to which you want quick access. Note that if you select a document from your stack, it will open the appropriate program to view it.
- Drag your folder to the Dock. Just be sure to stay on the right hand side of the walkway.
You now have a new stack on your dock. If you right click on its icon, you can adjust certain behavior items, such as how it’s displayed and viewed.
