    Can I change the icon on a stack item? I have added Applications as a stack but I can't perform Get Info to change the icon.

    Also how do I copy the icon displayed for Application on the side bar as opposed to the folder icon that I get when I perform Get Info?

    Stack icon manipulation: right click (or control-click) on it. Pick Stack or Folder from the Display As section.

    Application icon: Huh? You want the icon that's displayed in the Sidebar to appear where?

    If you want a different icon to appear for an item in the stack, you must first change the icon of the original file or create an alias, change the icon of the alias, then drag that alias to the stack.
