Extra info: Dash to Dock on GNOME 40 may give you some minor graphical glitches and issues. If you’re interested in installing it check the commands below.

Before installing the fork check to see if it has been updated.

Fedora: dnf gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock
Arch Linux yay gnome-shell-extension-dash-to-dock-gnome40-git

After you run the command above you can type in r (if xorg) or restart (wayland) in the run prompt you should be good to go.
