To completely reset the dock back to the original factory settings do the following:
We had a weird problem with our dock and this totally helped fix it.
thanks good work
the magnification was screwed and this has fixed the issue.
I dont have those in my preferences folder. When i deleted them and wrote killall dock in terminal, nothing happened. I want to try again but now they arent in my trash and i cant find them!!!
…after all that to post forgot what I was going to say….
PS….but Pushkar’s advice worked on Snow Leopard after Mobile Me overwrote the dock from the cloud….and deleted the new Application Stack.
Where do i type the killall command? Whre’s the “terminal”?
Hold Cmd + Spacebar and then type terminal in the finder window. It will show up.
Hi is there a way to just reset the Mail application to like when you opened it for the first time?
Thanks, that worked like a charm.
Thank you very much you saved my dock
This is an excellent tip that worked perfectly for my dock weirdness problems. Thank you!
Thanks, helped a Mac newbie out!
Thank you! =)
Worked great for me! However, I had set up a user as admin rather than setting up a dedicated admin account (dumb, I know!). Anyway, I had changed the location of certain files in the dock in the prior admin account to folders that had made more sense to me (eg. itunes located in a folder within Applications called Music). That changed everything. The dock does not seem smart enough to relocate the files. So, when I would set up new accounts (such as a guest account), the dock would always display ‘?’ where the original file was to be. i fixed this with your method plus dragging the original apps back onto the dock (thus placing them back in the original Finder folder).
Hope that helps anyone who did same….
This Worked amazing! I had messed around with some settings and somehow frozen my dock. Thanks so much!
Thank you so much it worked.
Really great help, my dock is now unscrewed!
Thnxs a lot!

how about to restore the default theme?
Thanks for making this reset information handy. My 2010 MacBook Pro has twice developed a weird problem where the Dock process consumes 100% or more of a CPU core and the cooling fan(s) run at high speed. An Apple Genius fixed it once and I remembered him saying something about deleting Dock files from the preferences folder under my library, but the details escaped me. These instructions worked perfectly. My Mac is running cool and quiet again.
Thanks, it worked like a charm!!!
Thanks a lot this works for me .
