    Dock is gone and can't locate finder to retrieve the dock back
    My top menu bar on the right disappeared, my dock disappeared and can't locate the finder to retrieve either. Please tell me how to find my finder. I "think" I know how to retrieve the dock from there on. Help me please!

    "my top menu bar on the right" -- I have no idea what this means. The menu bar stretches across the length of the display.

    Is it possible you are simply in "full screen mode" in an application?

    I'm having difficulty with "can't locate the finder" as well. You have a blank screen?

    That part I assume means the Finder icon which is normally on the left side of the Dock.

    But yes, a look at http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/new...lity-post.html would be useful for the OP and us.

    You're in full screen mode as that will also make the dock disappear. Move your cursor slowly toward the top of the screen until the top menu appears. Click on view, click on exit full screen and your dock and top menu will reappear.
