    I am trying to change the default blue apple icon on my menu bar to a flowery apple. I followed a procedure online and have saved my Extras.rsrc and Extras2.rsrc files to the desktop, the first in PPC and the second in Intel, yet I cannot seem to move these files back into the Resources Folder. When I try to copy and paste them or insert them into the folder I get an error with a number and the message "this folder is not modifiable". Does anyone know where I can go from here to change my apple icon? Thanks

    does it have an Authenticate button in the window that pops up when you drag it in? hit that and then put in your admin password.

    check the resources folder info

    I was trying to modify a Resource folder and the Authenticate button would not work for me. (I wanted to add a jpg file to the cosmos screen saver.) I went to the folder info page (command-I) and added myself to the Sharing & Permissions list with read & write privilege. Then I could add a file to the folder.
