I'm relatively new to macOS. I'm using macOS Mojave and I have 2 monitors. I want the dock to stay on my right screen. My problem is when I move the mouse to the the bottom center on my left screen the dock permanently changes it's location to the left screen until I do the same again on my right screen.

The following solutions do not work for me for reasons below:

  • I don't want the dock to move to right. I want it at the bottom.
  • I don't want to disable separate spaces because I want to use this feature.

Is there any way to do this besides these 2 options?

I will explain to you how it's implemented, but I don't believe it's what you want.

I have 4 monitors. When I set the dock to "bottom", with auto-hide off, moving to the center of any of the monitors cause the dock to jump to the bottom of that monitor and stay there until I do the same on another monitor.

If I set the dock to the left or right, it will remain permanently on either the left-most or right-most monitor.

I do not believe it is possible to have the dock on the bottom of ONLY one of the monitors. It just doesn't work that way.

Unfortunately, sometimes the answer is "You can't do that."

There may be a third-party app somewhere that would allow you to pin the dock to the bottom of only one display, but I'm unaware of any.

My suggestion is that you file a RADAR with Apple and request it as a future feature.

I can envision writing an app that would do what you're asking, but given that a quick check of all the multi-monitor software developers and video editors I know shows all of them with either a left-side or right-side dock, the audience would be insignificant...if I thought I could get 200 people to pay $1, I'd set up a Patreon and do it, but I think you're a lonely unicorn...

    Thank you for your detailed answer. Okay this is really sad because that's the only major "issue" I'm facing with macOS. I'm already using cDock so I think I will contact the developer of this tool and ask if he can implement this. I hope Apple will implement more options for the dock and generally customization options in macOS because I'm really a "customization guy" – D3SOX Apr 19 at 0:37
