    Changing Appearance
    Hi All,
    I was at a jobsite, freelancing and noticed some of the folders had icons instead of the usual folder icon. I asked how to do it and someone told me to left click on the folder, choose get info and simply drag the icon I want into the dialogue box. I tried doing this when I got home and it didn't work. Could someone tell me how to do this?

    Alternatively get the 'Telling Folders' app from the Mac App Store @ $1.99 and do it automatically.

    I completely understand that cradom, but, for someone thats not that confident with doing it the old school way telling folders just takes the hassle out of what they are trying to acheve in a simple way.

    Its just a handy inexpensive little app to have for when you want to change a folders appearance on the fly
