    I got tired of my stacks being those small little blue envelopes as I thought they were boring.

    I ran across this Chinese site......

    optica optima: DRAWERS icon #1

    And couldn't understand a word he was saying with it LOL. So I downloaded the files and went from there.

    The link to download the Drawers icons are below... I downloaded them all so I could change them when I wanted to.... to get a different look.

    Icon Download

    Now my stacks look like nice little draws! All nice and tidy!

    Once I downloaded one of them my download opened and I double left clicked on the bottom draw...

    once I clicked on them there were several on them on that screen. I then took the ones I wanted to use and dragged them to my desktop.

    Once they were on my desktop I then right clicked on them then clicked on Get Info and then changed the name & extension of the file.

    For example I am going to use the download draw. When I changed the name of it I changed it to this. **Download***.app and then closed the window.

    Once I changed it I then opened my download directory and then dragged it into it.

    Once it was in there it then changed my blue boring envelope to a nice little draw.

    In your folder to where you added the draw with the *** name just remove that file out of the folder and it should go back to normal... if not reboot.

    Is there a way to hide the icon file which now shows up in each stacked folder? The first file for them all now is the "**Download*** with the icon photo... This seems unnecessary to not have hidden, I just can't figure out how to hide it.

    Other than that very cool! Thanks for the post!

    Also I keep accidently clearing my downloads folder when I move the files, and deleting this file... so if it were hidden maybe it wouldn't be deleted! haha.
