Customizing the Dock’s Behavior

As if moving the Dock around and changing its size weren’t enough, there’s yet more you can do to make the Dock work just the way you want it to. The Dock preferences enable you to control the way the Dock moves—or, more precisely, the way its icons move and change size and the way windows enter the Dock.
