THE ONE-CLICK TRICK TO MOVING THE DOCK

Okay, so you're working in a program like Final Cut Pro or iMovie, which takes up every vertical inch of the screen, and when you go to adjust something near the bottom, the Dock keeps popping up. Oh sure, you could move the Dock to where it's anchored on the left or right side of the screen, but that just feels weird. But what if you could move it temporarily to the left or right, and then get it back to the bottom when you close Final Cut Pro, in just one click? Here's how: Hold the Shift key, click directly on the Dock's divider line (on the far right side of the Dock), and drag the Dock to the left or right side of your screen. Bam! It moves over to the side. Then, once you quit Final Cut, just Shift-click on that divider line and slam it back to the bottom (okay, drag it back to the bottom). A draggable Dock—is that cool or what!
