I accidently dragged the button you click to expand all your documents off of my dock... how do I re-add that? I can't figure out how to.

Drag your documents folder from the Finder onto your Dock. That should recreate the Stack.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Are you dragging it to the left or right side of the divider?

To give a more detailed explanation...

1)open finder
2)navigate to your home folder
3)drag your documents folder to the left side of the dock (to the left of the horizontal lines)
4)hold it there for a second
5)you should see the icons originally there shift and make room for the documents folder
6)let go of your click and the folder should drop into the dock
