Mac, Tutorials

Are you tired of your Mac’s dock always being on the wrong screen? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, I will show you how to move the dock to another screen on your Mac. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Open System Preferences

The first step is to open the System Preferences on your Mac. You can do this by clicking on the Apple logo in the top-left corner of your screen and selecting “System Preferences” from the dropdown menu.

Step 2: Click on “Displays”

Once you’re in the System Preferences window, look for the “Displays” icon and click on it. This will open a new window with display settings.

Step 3: Arrange Displays

In the Displays window, go to the “Arrangement” tab. Here, you’ll see a representation of your screens. The primary screen is indicated by a white bar at the top.

If you want to move the dock to a different screen, simply click and drag the white bar from one screen to another. You’ll see that as you move it, the position of your screens will change accordingly.


If you have multiple screens connected to your Mac, you can arrange them in any order you prefer. This allows for flexibility in moving windows and applications between screens.

Step 4: Apply Changes

Once you’re happy with the new arrangement of your screens, click on the “Apply” button at the bottom right corner of the Displays window. Your changes will be saved, and your dock will now appear on the screen you moved it to.

Step 5: Enjoy Your New Dock Location!

That’s it! You’ve successfully moved the dock to another screen on your Mac. Now you can enjoy a more efficient workflow with your dock in the perfect location.

If at any point you want to revert back to the original screen arrangement, you can simply follow the same steps and drag the white bar back to its original position.


Moving the dock to another screen on your Mac is a simple process that can greatly improve your productivity. By following these easy steps, you can customize your Mac setup to suit your needs and preferences.

Remember, don’t be afraid to experiment with different screen arrangements until you find the one that works best for you. Happy docking!
