Have Leopard in your Macintosh ?
Neither me
That's why I made this instructable
Just because I want all my crap easily accesible !

The only thing you need is your mac and the mandatory hardware (mouse , keyboard, screen...)

Step 1: Create a Copy of Your Desired Folder

Step 2: Clone-ify Your Folder

First right click your origin folder ,choose "obtain information" select the icon , And Press "Command" + "C" in the Keyboard (to copy the icons )
Then, Right click the "stack" , Select "obtain information" , Select the Icon , Then Press "Command" + "v"
(paste) ,

Now Both Folders (fake stack , and original ) have the same icon

FYI : the "command " button is the one with the apple logo

Change The Name From "applications Alias" to "applications " or "Apps"

Step 3: Final Step and Use

In the english version of Mac OS X Tiger, the option is called "Get Info" not obtain information

Just click with your right mouse button on a random folder you dragged in the dock and you will get the same result.

Sorry mate, but this is a load of rubbish, if you drag the applications folder down to the dock and click and hold, the same happens, trust me, i tried that first.

This is great, but there's actually a simpler way to do it. All you have to do is: 1. Open a new Finder window 2. Navigate to the folder containing your desired folder 3. Drag your desired folder into the Dock Now you will have a "Stack" in the Dock. You can also right-click (or Ctrl-click) on the icon to bring it up instead of clicking on it for three seconds. If, however, you wanted to use a different icon for the Stack than the original folder, the method you have shown would be very useful. I was so happy when I figured out that this could be done in OS X. I hated having to open the Applications folder, but now it is easily accessible from the Dock. :)
