    Click once on the icon you want, to highlight it.
    In the Finder, click on the top left menu item: File and scroll down to: Get Info.

    (This can also be done on the keyboard by hitting + I).

    An Info Window will zoom out of the icon.
    At the very top-left of the Info Window, there'll be an image of the icon again. Click once on this image to highlight it. Then click on menu item: Edit and scroll down to: Copy.

    (Or use + C).

    Then click once on the Folder you want to change, to highlight it, click File and scroll down to: Get Info. In its Get Info window, click once on its Folder image to highlight it, click on Edit again and scroll down to: Paste.

    (Or use + V).

    Close both Info Windows.

    Do these still all work with Snow Leopard? I thought it killed icon changing.
