Access dock settings with a control-click Desktop
Control click on the Dock divider and ... presto!, a menu to change:
  1. Magnification
  2. Hiding
  3. Position on screen
  4. Genie/Scaling option
  5. Goto Dock prefs
Especially helpful when the Hide/Show Dock shortcut (++D) isn't responding due to a problem of some sort. Quicker for me than the Apple Menu option.

[Editor's note: I know I've been on vacation for a while, but I thought for sure we had published this basic tip before, but I certainly don't see it while scanning the archives ... if someone can prove me wrong, please do so!]

Try right clicking instead...

Not everyone is as enlightened as we are per the use of multi-button mice (which are finally fully supported by the OS!).

FWIW, control-click/right-click are indistinguishible as far as the OS is concerned.

VirtualPC even correctly functions (in Mac OS X)with control-right-click operations (some programs use this!). Prior to Mac OS X, it didn't, since CTRL-click was already CTRL'd, so you couldn't CTRL it. :_)
