Almost everyone likes tweaking their Mac, and LifeHacker has posted a great list of tweaks for Mac OS X users that you’re sure to enjoy. A few of the tips have been covered by OS X Daily before, but there will likely be some that are new to you.

One of the most useful tips in the LifeHacker list is about using the Applications folder in the Dock, making it into start menu-like application launcher:

#10: If you’re a Windows switcher who longs for the Start menu, drag and drop the Applications folder to the Dock, between the Trash bin and vertical separator. Click and hold the folder to reveal a vertically-expanding programs list, much like Windows Programs menu. Any folder or hard drive can go there, too – like Documents, the hard drive or a thumb drive.

This was determined to be so useful that Apple started shipping the OS X Dock with that exact feature pre-configured, how cool is that?

Check out the rest at LifeHacker’s Lifehacker: Top 10 Mac OS X Tweaks, or cruise through our tips & tricks list and make up your own ‘top 10’ list!
