    I found a nicer version (IMO--y'know, since I'm a girl 'n all! LOL) of a Finder Icon, but i cant figure out how to change it!

    With the other icons, im just following this simple change up:
    double click pick/file that I want it to look like>Get Info>single click the small version of the icon (until its "highlighted" around the perimeter)>Edit:Copy

    Then go to the application that i want to change the icon of
    Get Info>click to highlight THAT icon>Edit: Paste

    and presto...

    but there's no "get info" for the finder!

    Can anyone help me out here?
    Thanks you guys!

    OH, and here's the different verson of the finder that i want to switch to

    You can use the great icon utility CandyBar or the free alternative LiteIcon to change the Finder icon in the dock easily.
