Is it cluttered with files you downloaded or saved there (somewhat less than) temporarily?Youre not alone. Everybody does it. Time to clean house with Stacks--a brand-new feature in Leopard. Create Stacksfrom anything you want to access quickly from one place: a handful of documents, a group of applications, an entirefolder. Files you download in Safari or save from an email are automatically directed to a Stack in the Dock, and whenthe download is complete, the Stack signals that a new item has arrived. When you want to see the files in a Stack, allyou have to do is click--Stacks spring open from the Dock in an elegant arc for a few items, or in an at-a-glance grid formore. Pretty neat.
