Hi I wanted to drag my folder shortcut to the left side of my dock where all the applications are. the folder I have is just a folder with other apps in it from the same manufacturer because I dont want my dock to be very long I did it that way but is there a way to drag a folder to the left side of the dock or maybe an app that does the same thing.

  • There are a number of macOS dock replacements available that may do what you want, they are just a google search away... Dec 12, 2020 at 15:42
  • @SteveChambers many people dont recommend that kind of stuff because it breaks your macOS down. which one would you recommend that wouldn't do that kind of stuff Dec 13, 2020 at 20:53
  • I don't use them, so I can't recommend one. Knowing they exist I present it as a possibility. It's up to you to determine suitability. Dec 13, 2020 at 22:37

Folder shortcuts, & document shortcuts, are stuck at the right hand end of the dock. Apple doesn't offer any preference for that aspect of the Dock, & I would suspect any UI hack to do it of being dangerous.
