This question already has an answer here:

Download stack is missing from the iMac Dock. The Download stack was originally present but may have been removed with the High Sierra update. Presently all downloads go directly to the download file and plus be recovered from the Finder application. I have not been able to find guidance on how to solve this problem in the Safari help.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  1. Open Finder and go to your home folder using the go menu.
  2. Drag the Download folder to the dock to the immediate left of the trash.
  3. Control click the downloads to choose the stack effect if needed.
  • Almost there. ctrl+click and also check the options View Content As: Fan, Sort By: Date Added, to get back to the default functionality in Mojave – ppostma1 Feb 13 at 15:26
