You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to access the System Preferences menu on your Mac running OS X Yosemite by using the dock.
- 1In order to do this, we're going to scroll down on our Mac to the very bottom of the screen.This will open up the dock for us. On the dock, there will be an option for "System Preferences". It looks like a giant gear inside of a silver-gray box, and it is also labelled "System Preferences".Advertisement
- 3One click will launch or open the "System Preferences" menu.On "System Preferences", we will see a series of four rows of icons with an optional fifth row. The fifth row is anything installed or added that is not part of Mac OS X Yosemite, or from Mac. In this case, Flash Player is an example. We may have net downloaders or other things that will also appear here.
