The iCloud Drive app gives you quick and easy access to files in the cloud from Mac and iOS devices. It’s just not very convenient to get to it – by default Apple only offers the Drive tab in the Finder. Could you add a Drive icon to the Dock? Can! Here’s how to do it.

In order to place iCloud Drive in the place we need, we need access to the system folder. We’ll make a shortcut and place the icon right in the Dock. It sounds scary, but in fact, there is nothing too complicated here.
1. Open the Finder application on your Mac – by clicking on the corresponding icon or through the search.
2. From the menu bar, select Transition → Go to folder or press the keyboard shortcut Command (⌘) + Shift (⇧) + G.
3. Enter the next path, then press Enter (Return):
You will find yourself in the Applications folder. One of them will be iCloud Drive.
4. All we have to do is drag the Drive icon to the desired location on the Dock.
Done! ICloud Drive is now a click away. If you often work with cloud files, this will surely save you a lot of time and frustration.
