    Quick Dock Question
    Hi all,

    Just abandonded my DELL for my first Mac, a 15 inch PowerBook G4, which (on the whole) is fantastic.

    Quick question. I used to have an icon on my dock, just left of the trash can, that was silver with an '@' symbol on the top. I have just accidentally dropped this onto the desktop, which is obviously a delete command in OS X (complete with smoke effects!!).

    Is this icon simply a short cut to the OS X Tiger website?

    How do I get it back?

    Thanks, Dave.

    Yes it is :-)
    To get it back go to the website and just drag the favicon by the address to the right side of the dock
    From someone who lost it the same way :-) poof.

    Drag it by the favicon...
    I never knew how to get the little springy icon back.. cool!

    Dragging stuff from the dock will only delete the shortcut by the way - your applications and files aren't deleted, unless your drag them to the trash.

    Thanks guys.....

    Its always the little things that frustrate the most!!

    Dragging the icon worked a treat. Is the icon - in this case the '@' on a spring - embedded in the web site then?

    Cheers.

    Dave.

    No - it'll work with any address dragged from the address bar (I just tried mac-forums.com).
