Hey, I accidentally dragged Applications off the dock and removed it - I put it back by dragging the folder from the finder but now it is just a folder so shows the icon that is on top - I want it to look like it was a folder with "A" on the front.

Anyway to put it back how it was? Fairly unimportant but thought someone might relish the challenge???

Download Folder Icon X for Mac - Create custom OS X folder icons. MacUpdate Mac Icon Tools Software Downloads

Lol I just dragged my folder from the dock onto the web page which said "drag folder here" (which removed from the dock AGAIN)

Then I tried to put it back by dragging Apps from the side panel of Finder but missed so removed it from the side of Finder too! I put it back now.

Ok so downloaded the app - how do I get the image of the A i need?? Sorry im such an amature.

To get an App back in dock - go to Applications folder on hard drive and double click app to open it and it will appear in Dock then right click on icon that is now in dock or left click for a couple of secs either of which will bring up a contextual menu then select 'Keep in Dock'- Done

To get the 'A' back on top:

Drag the folder back to the dock
Right click the folder on the dock
Navigate to the 'Display As' section
Choose Folder
