    I want to change the spring icon but can't find it in applications. What is the proper name for it so I can use Candybar to change it?

    You mean the Apple Weblink? Why not just remove it and stick your Applications folder there instead, far more useful!

    You mean the spring with the @ sign on it?

    Its only a link to Apples website. It serves no other purpose except to annoy you and demonstrate that you can put folders in the dock on the right of the separator. You can get rid of it by dragging it off the dock.

    It's actually a link to a website (the Apple one by default) and not an app – I'm not sure you can actually change it in CandyBar

    I removed mine quite a while ago, but from what i remember it's the "Software update" icon. You can do the same thing by clicking the Apple symbol at the top left of your desktop and then click on "Software update"

    I believe you can just drag a urll from the address bar onto the dock.

    Thanks guys. I just have a few cute spring icons and wanted to try one. But removing it all together and putting my app folder there instead sounds like a good idea.

    Thanks again.
