How to fix programs that were improperly added to the Dock
Authored by: Aeschylus on Dec 28, '09 07:38:06PM

Yes, this can be a very difficult problem for newbies, because they are expecting a complicated installer with each new program. Your technique can be simplified a bit more: instead of removing the Dock icon and then searching for the .dmg file with Spotlight, simply instruct the user to right click (control-click) on the Dock icon and choose the Option "Show in Finder". The .dmg file can then be used to install the program (if it is not already installed in the Applications folder) and then deleted. After this, the Dock icon can be removed. I hope that, even for a newbie, the little puff of smoke that follows is self explanatory.
