Using the Mac Dock With Only Your Keyboard

While the Dock seems like a strictly graphical interface, you can actually use it with just the keyboard. You can launch apps, access advanced functions, and even rearrange the items in the Dock using keyboard shortcuts.

    What is the disadvantage of using a more finger friendly keyboard shortcut to focus on the dock like, Command + D, instead of stretching to the F and/or Fn keys?

    Jonathan: Whether FN+D is "finger friendly" depends on your keyboard. On my MacBook Air, it is pretty easy. But my extended Mac keyboard on my desk has the FN key at the top right instead. You can change it to what you like, but avoid things that are already well-used by you (Command+D is duplicate in Finder and other apps).
