    You know how in your users folder you have a lot of folders (named Downloads, Documents, Music, Movies, etc), they have icons on them. How can I attach one of them to a regular folder? And also changed a folder icon totally?

    I know for folder changing CandyBar can do it, was just hoping there is something more practical in the OS for that

    Get info (cmd-I) on the icon/folder you want to put on another folder, and click the icon in the top-left and copy it.

    Then just do the same thing, but paste it on the folder/document/etc. you want.

    - copy your icon (command + c)
    - Command + i to bring the info pane of the folder.
    - select its icon on the top left.
    - Command + v


    EDIT: BEATEN :(
