Even after I successfully download any apps from App Store, the progress of that download doesn't go away from dock.

Dock with download progress stuck

How can I fix it?

The problem is on macOS High Sierra, 10.13.4.

    Try restarting the Dock by running killall Dock.

    This happens to me all the time, and in every version of macOS at least as far back as Yosemite. Restarting the Dock and/or Finder does not fix the problem, although fully rebooting my computer does. It can happen for any type of file being copied to a folder that's in the Dock, although not consistently. Apr 17, 2018 at 18:23

    @NimeshNeema It removes the status bar. But, appears next time something is installed or copied to the same folder.

    @Wowfunhappy Yeah, you are right. I happens when anything is copied into the folder too. I only seeing first time in High Sierra.I reinstalled my macOS and the problem disappeared.

    @saneef I will be curious as to whether the problem is still fixed a couple months from now. I format my computer before every major macOS upgrade. Apr 19, 2018 at 0:09

  1. Restart the Dock by executing: killall Dock.

  2. Reset NVRAM.

  3. Reset SMC.

Resetting NVRAM clears the cache which generally causes the issue.

  • I reinstalled my macOS and this problem vanished. I can't verify right now :) . Since @Jules confirms this same fix, I'm marking this as answer.

You can restart your Mac, Force Quit or delete Applications and restore the folder. Best: Upgrade to new OS

  • Can you clarify on what you mean by "upgrade to new OS"? @saneef stated that he is using the latest version of macOS.
