in most cases if you try and delete or move something outside of your home directory it will require an admin password before it executes.

I'm assuming you moved the apps folder from the side bar in the finder, just go to Macintosh HD and drag the apps folder back in.

All you deleted was a short-cut, not the actual folder.

if you havnt figured it out already. open finder and you should be able to click on some preferences or some other thing (at the top) i cant tell you exactly cuz i'm at work and not on a mac right now, but you'll find a place where it'll actually ask you what you want in that shortcut menu. you'll find your apps box unchecked. sorry if thats a little unclear, i'll post in more detail later if you havnt solved it yet.

Hehe, I did this too on Friday and freaked.

In the Finder menu go to preferences and the choose sidebar. There are some check boxes. Just check applications at the bottom and you're good to go.

I knew someone who did this once and got so mad they threw the computer on the floor - in some cultures that helps i guess. They were madder when I explained they just deleted the shortcut!
