    Hi, first post, thanks in advance for any help offered.

    My "applications" folder in the dock has been doing strange things. At first it changed to a crossed out circle icon. Then after downloading some mp3s from amazon it has changed to an amazon music icon.

    I have tried changing it by ctrl/click, get info, select icon, pasting in a new image. The new image is visible in the finder but when you close the finder the icon on the desktop hasn't changed.

    Any ideas?

    See attached screenshots.

    Is this because you have it to "Display as" a "Stack" and not a "Folder"?
