How to add AirDrop to your Mac’s dock

How to add AirDrop to your Mac’s dock

Since I have an iMac compatible with AirDrop between Apple devices, there is no week that I do not use it to send me files. From Mac to iPhone, from iPad to Mac or from iPhone to iPad. It does not matter, all the devices send and receive my files in the blink of an eye.

So, when I saw that there was a trick to add an AirDrop shortcut in the dock of my iMac, I did not hesitate to try it and add it.


Add an AirDrop shortcut to your iMac dock

Adding an AirDrop shortcut to your dock on the Mac is pretty easy when you know what to do. To do this, follow these steps:

  • In a Finder folder, go to the Go menu> Go to folder.
  • You will see a box with a dialog in which you can enter a route. Enter this without the quotes: “/System/Library/CoreServices/


  • Click on the Go button and a folder like the one you see above will appear, showing the AirDrop app
  • Now you just have to drag this icon and place it where you want in your dock.


In my case, I have already placed this shortcut next to the Finder icon. By clicking on it, you will see the folder that opens when you are going to send files via AirDrop to an iOS device or another Mac, saving you several steps in between. A pretty useful trick. Isn’t it?
