    Changing folder icons
    Is there a way to change the icon for a folder? (just an individual folder?)
    Problem is I have 2 folders in my dock, one apps and one games, and they both look the same. If possible I'd like them different.

    Cheers

    select the folder you want to change in the finder, then hit command+i, then select the folder/doc containing the icon you want, hit command+i, in that get info window, click the icon in the top right area of the window, go to edit/copy, then go to the get info window for the folder you wish to change and click the icon that is the normal folder,, go to edit /paste. that should do it. I have all sorts of icons and change them all, the normal folder is so boring.:mac:

    What is a good source for alternate icons?

    Sorry, no intention of hijacking a thread just adding to it
