When you buy a Mac computer, many times there are some inconveniences, especially because you are not used to working on this type of machine. 

The first thing you should know is that the bar at the bottom of the screen is called the Dock, where you can see different icons of all the applications that your computer has installed, and also your favorite folders. 

Usually, when you first see the number of icons that can be found in the Dock, you are scared. However, you have the option to edit it, and thus eliminate the applications that you do not use or those that do not interest you. Also, when you move the cursor on the bar on all the icons a domino effect appears.

But, when making an edit in the Dock, many users delete some very important folders, such as the downloads folder. For this reason, we teach you the solution to this problem. 

You should note that this solution works perfectly on any version of Mac, and the important thing is that you fully perform all the steps below.

  • The first step is to open Finder on your macOS.
  • Then, in the menu that appears you must select the option ''Go'' that appears on the screen. 
  • The next thing you should do is click on ''start''.
  • Now the option appears ''home'', and there you click to find the folder ''downloads''.
  • Once you find the downloads folder you must drag it to the extreme right side of the Dock.
  • The downloads folder is now in the Dock, ready to be used. 

These steps can also be used to remove any items from the Dock that you don't want. It is very important because in this way you have organized all the applications that you use frequently, and you can select them faster.
