How to Save & Open Up Web Page From Mac Dock!

One of the many features that make the elite Apple Mac computers stand apart from Microsoft machines is their iDock.

Just incase you are not familiar, the iDock is your cool pop-up icon library that is usually positioned at the bottom of your desktop. It is so useful as it allows you to open up all your favourite and most used applications with just one click (opposed to scrolling though endless menus, searching for the desired software.)

Interestingly it is not just softwares and apps such as iTunes, Safari, iPhoto, DVD player etc that you have neatly store in the iDock. It can also house your documents, folders and even bookmarks for your most visited web pages. Wow!

So instead of waiting for your internet browser to open, typing a keyword into the search engine and then pulling up the address, you can snuggly keep it ready and raring to go with just one click on your iDock.

Like setting up most Mac features, saving a website bookmark in to your iDock is a breeze. Here’s…

How to Save & Open Up Web Page From Mac Dock!

1.) Say you wanted to catch up on all the latest celeb gossip from your favourite online magazine, you would begin by navigating your way to their site.

2.) Next click on the little grey apple icon as the left side of the address bar. Holding the cursor down, drag the address down to your iDock. Decide where you would like to place it and drop it in by letting go of the mouse.

Clever Mac OS X automatically generate a locator icon with the name of the website, so it looks at home amongst the usual array of snazzy glossy Mac graphics in the iDock.

To visit the site simply click on the new icon. Your internet browser will then launch and immediately take you to the saved web address.
