Pin the Mac Dock to the Top or Bottom Corner of the Screen

By default, the Mac Dock is located on the bottom of the screen. If you prefer it on the left or right side of the screen, this is a neat little trick that will allow you to pin the Mac Dock to the top or bottom corner of either side.

To get started, be sure that your Dock position is already set to the left or right. You can do this via the Apple menu (Apple -> Dock -> Position). Next, open Terminal and enter one of the following commands:

pins Dock to bottom corner

defaults write pinning -string end

pins Dock to top corner

defaults write pinning -string start

You’ll then need to restart the Dock by entering this Terminal command:

killall Dock

If you want to put the Dock back in it’s default center position, you’ll need to enter this command in Terminal:

defaults write pinning -string middle

Don’t forget to restart the Dock again:

killall Dock

Which position is your favorite for the Mac Dock?
