    Hello all,

    I accidentally removed the "Downloads" stack from the Dock; I'm now having problems restoring it to the Dock.

    I'm unable to drag and drop the Downloads folder itself, but can drag every other folder within it.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Sabesh.

    Do you mean you can't drag it from a Finder window to the dock? If so, have you tried dragging it to the right hand (folder) end of the dock?

    Yes, that's what I meant. Yes, I've tried dragging it to the right side with no success.

    Thanks,

    Sabesh.

    In Finder, Go menu, Go To Folder: /Users/(your user name)/Downloads/
    Then drag the icon at the top of the window into the dock.

    Not sure if this will work, it didn't go into the dock for me, but probably because it is already in the dock.
