Chapter 4. Dock, Desktop & Toolbars

You can’t help reacting, one way or another, to the futuristic, sleek looks of OS X the first time you arrive at its desktop. There’s the Dock, looking photorealistic and shiny on its 3-D mirrored shelf. There are those Finder windows, slick and textureless with their gentle gradient-gray title bars. And then there’s the shimmering backdrop of the desktop itself.

This chapter shows you how to use and control these most dramatic elements of Mavericks.
