Have you ever wished you could move your Mac Dock to another screen? Maybe you have a dual monitor setup and want to have easy access to your applications on both screens.

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to move your Mac Dock to another screen in just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Access System Preferences

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

Step 2: Select “Displays”

Once you’re in the System Preferences, locate and click on the “Displays” icon. This will open up a new window with display options.

Step 3: Arrangement Tab

In the Displays window, click on the “Arrangement” tab. This tab allows you to configure how your displays are positioned.

Step 4: Drag and Drop

Now comes the fun part! You’ll see a representation of your displays in the Arrangement tab. To move your Mac Dock to another screen, simply click and drag the white bar at the top of one display and drag it onto another display.

Note: You can also adjust the position of each display by dragging them around in this window. This is useful if you want to align your screens or set one above/below the other.


  • If you have multiple displays connected to your Mac, they will be shown side by side in this window.
  • You can rearrange them by dragging their representations within this window as well.
  • Make sure to align the displays according to their physical positions on your desk for a seamless experience.

Step 5: Apply Changes

Once you’ve positioned your displays and moved the Mac Dock to another screen, click the “Apply” button in the bottom-right corner of the window. Your changes will be saved, and your Mac Dock will now appear on the screen you’ve selected.

Note: If you’re using macOS Catalina or later, you may need to unlock the Arrangement tab by clicking on the padlock icon at the bottom of the window and entering your admin password.


Moving your Mac Dock to another screen is a breeze with these simple steps. Whether you have a dual monitor setup or just want to change things up, adjusting your display arrangement can greatly enhance your productivity and workflow. So go ahead, give it a try!

Note: These instructions are specific to macOS Mojave and may vary slightly depending on your macOS version. However, the general process should be similar across different versions of macOS.
