Today is my 1 month anniversary as a Mac user, and believe me, I've learned a lot. I was inclined to drag the Applications folder to the dock, with the expectation that I might end up with a cascading folder from which I could more quickly launch apps that aren't already in the dock. As I dragged it though, I noticed what appeared to be the "poof" cloud, and thought better of continuing my experiment. I doubt Apple would let me be that stupid, but better to ask than to be wondering how to recover from my stupidity. So, my goal basically is quick access to Applications and other Finder Folders from the dock, without actually having to fire up Finder. Thanks!

You have to drag it on the side of the trash can

Hmm... I just tried that (several times), and it either ends up in the trash can, or "poofing" and vanishing. Fortunately, I see that it's easy enough to re-create it in the sidebar. Maybe I should be dragging it not from the sidebar? Let's see . . . Yes! I was dragging from the sidebar, rather than the Applications folder itsself. Thanks! That's an improvement, but is there any possibility of having what I'll refer to as an "exploding"/cascading menu pop out of the applications folder? I'd like to eliminate the extra step of having to launch the app, and then close the finder window.

Thanks! Add that to my just learned "shift while clicking minimize" slo-mo trick, and it's been a good day. I think at least half the fun of a Mac (and Linux when I ran it) is that it's a break from the monotony of the same old O/S. Lots of new stuff to learn, tweak, etc.
