Restore Downloads icon to Finder Sidebar

by leetbacoon   Last Updated May 16, 2019 06:12 AM

So I symlinked my Downloads folder from my boot drive to an external HDD I always keep connected to my mac. I deleted the original downloads folder from my home folder and replaced it with a symlink to a new folder on my HDD.

This works perfectly, except that in Finder, the sidebar icon is now a folder:

no download icon

When it should look like this:

download icon

Operating system is High Sierra 10.13.6

Tags : finder icon
