    Hi,
    is it possible to chnage the icon of a shortcut folder that I add to the Places section in Finder ? I would like the "Speed Download" to have the same icon as Download on the screen shot.

    Thanks,
    Tex

    It works. The problem is, the Info window doesn't always show the same logo as the Finder window. :(

    Try ToolbarDownloadsFolderIcon.icns in /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources :)

    How about Get Info on Speed Download App icon then copy from that onto the Speed Download folder?

    You have to open up the Preview section of Get Info and drag that up to the icon on the folder's Get Info window.

    That's what I did but it does not show the new icon.

    Damn this does not survive a reboot. After a reboot, the old icons are back.
