Chapter 4. Dock, Desktop & Toolbars

You can’t help reacting, one way or another, to the “flat,” simplified look of OS X Yosemite the first time you arrive at its desktop.

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 Yosemite.
