Make More Space for Documents by Putting Your Dock on the Side of Your Mac’s Screen

Apple locates the Dock at the bottom of the Mac’s screen by default. That location may interfere with you seeing as much of your document windows as you’d like. You may know you can set the Dock to appear only when you move the pointer to the bottom edge of the screen. But there’s a better way: There is plenty of room on the side of the screen to put the Dock and it won’t get in the way of most document windows. To move your Dock, Open System Preferences > Dock, and select Right or Left from the Position on Screen radio buttons.
