If you have an Apple MacOS device, be it MacBook or iMac, you will have noticed that the operating system is very different from other systems such as Windows. Furthermore the elements of the operating system are also named differently. This is the case, for example, of the famous Windows “taskbar”, which in MacOS is called Dock. Although the main function of both is similar, the truth is that there are some other differences, however beans can be hidden automatically. This does not lead to a forced question: How to hide the Mac Dock?

By default, the MacOS task bar or Dock remains fixed and visible, as long as we do not open a program or window in full screen. This can be a bit annoying for certain users especially those who like to fully use their desktop space. It should be remembered that when we maximize a window and the Dock is configured to be displayed permanently, they will want two free spaces both to the right and to the left of the Dock, thus reducing the useful space or visit of the screen.
Fortunately, Apple allows MacOS devices such as Macbook or iMac to automatically hide the Dock, so you can use the entire screen of your computer showing a greater amount of content. This does not mean that we lose access to the Dock since just by placing our mouse cursor on the bottom of the screen, you will see how the Dock will be displayed automatically to be able to use it superimposed on the content of the open window.
If you want to know how to automatically hide and show the MacOS Dock, just follow the instructions shown in this guide:
How to make Mac Dock auto hide and show on macOS. (MacBook or iMac)
– Turn on your MacBook or iMac so that when you are on the desktop click on the Apple icon located in the upper left corner of the menu bar at the top of the screen. When the menu is displayed you will have to select the option: System preferences.

– Once the Dock is configured, you only have to close the configuration window and check how now, the Dock of your MacOS computer is automatically hidden as long as the mouse cursor does not rest on the bottom of the screen.
