You may have noticed that your new Mac came with a lot of software pre-installed and nearly every program is visible in your doc. If you find that you don’t need all of these programs, you can simply click on the icons and drag them up towards the middle of your screen…hold for a few seconds until a little cloud appears next to the icon. Then, release your mouse button and the icon will “poof” into thin air. You can also accomplish this by right-clicking the icon > Options > Remove from Dock.
