    How do you organize your dock?
    How do you organize your dock? (favorites first, color, no organization, etc.)

    I organize by color just after dashboard. (blue - green - orange - yellow - white)

    If you want you can attach your dock in a picture.

    Mine are organized by use. The ones that I have open at login and use most often begin at the left after the Finder and Dashboard.

    Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.

    I put absolutely nothing in my dock. Only running apps show left of the divider. Then I use stacks to organize aliases: Apps, Utils, Acc, and Docs.

    i like mine to flow by color. they are not organized by any certain way. with the exception on MS Office. i just found it easier to keep them together.

    I don't have really an organization to my dock. It's pretty much just the order I installed the apps in. I was planning on organizing it somehow, so I'm keeping my eye on this thread, maybe I'll get some good idea.

    Specs:
    17 inch 2 GHz C2D imac (5,1) with 3GB DDR2 RAM, X1600 (128MB memory) GPU - OSX 10.6.3
    From left to right here is my dock. Organised in this way:

    System styled apps:
    -finder
    -dashboard
    -system prefs
    -console
    -terminal
    -activity monitor
    -disk utility
    Music and Video playback apps:
    -audio overload
    -quicktime player
    -preview
    -itunes
    -vlc
    -realplayer
    -dvd player
    MSN like apps:
    -adium
    -amsn
    -msn
    -colloquy
    Text editing apps
    -pages
    -text edit
    -appleworks
    Unzipping and filesharing apps:
    -unrarx
    -the unarchiver
    -drop7zip
    -poisoned
    -limewire
    -frostwire
    -ssx
    -transmission
    -igetter
    Creativity Apps
    -photoshop
    -imageready
    -illustrator
    -garageband
    Nintendo on the mac APps
    -rocknes
    -snes 9x
    -sixtyforce
    Miscellaneous apps:
    -visual hub
    -iserial reader

    -audio hijac pro
    -toast 6
    -toast 8
    -dos box
    -snaps pro x
    -hp scan pro
    -mactracker

    So that's a total of 49 apps in my doc. I dunno if that's too many or not. But I like it that way. Well now I come to think of it there are a few apps in ym doc I hardly ever use. And for me the doc is a "frequently used app" storage space. So it's time for my dock to have a spring clean.

    How do some of you have so many apps in your dock? I have 9 including the trash, Finder, and Dashboard. All of my most used apps are in the dock, and if I need a different app I use Spotlight.
