How to add folder from sidebar Finder to Dock on Mac
1. Make sure the sidebar Finder is open. If not, with Finder open, select in the menu bar at the top View → Show Sidebar.
2. Locate the folder that you want to copy to the Dock.
3. Click on it with the right mouse button. An alternative is Ctrl + left-clicking on a folder.
4. In the context menu, select the option Add to Dock.
By default, the folder will be in the far right position in the Dock. Right-click on it to specify the necessary settings – sort by name, date of addition / change / creation / type, display by folder or stack, show contents as a fan, grid, list or automatically.
To remove a folder from the Dock, select Options → Remove from Dock. There is another way – drag the icon to the Finder sidebar.
