When we work with the computer, we are used to handling lots of documents, data, programs etc. Depending on the operating system that we have installed, the way to access the different services is different. In the case that our computer is a Mac, the way to access all this is through the Dock or taskbar..



The Dock or taskbar in macOS is a starting point to access the applications integrated by default in the system such as Photos, Maps, iTunes, Safari, TV and all the programs and files that we have open at that moment.


By default, the Dock in macOS is fixed to access these options but if for some design or visualization issue we want to hide it, it is very simple to carry out this configuration and in getFastAnswer we will explain how to achieve it. That is why below we show you all the steps you must follow to know how to hide the Dock or taskbar in macOS automatically in a simple and fast way..
