Apple - How can I remove the Finder icon from my Dock?
There is no easy way to do this, but there is a little hack :)
- Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/
- Backup DockMenus.plist
- Open DockMenus.plist in your favorite text editor with root access
finder-runningand add new sub-section
<dict> <key>command</key> <integer>1004</integer> <key>name</key> <string>REMOVE_FROM_DOCK</string> </dict>
or just Download my version of DockMenus.plist
In plist editor file should look like this:
Open Terminal and run
Right click on Finder icon in Dock - Bingo!
p.s After Dock restart (manual relaunch or mac reboot) you need manually remove Finder icon from Dock
