    Put Applications back on the dock like it was
    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???

    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.
