I'm on macOS Big Sur 11.1, and I wanted to use a different folder for my Safari downloads, so I created another directory and did
ln -s ~/Downloads on it (symlinked).
Everything works fine except for a small thing.
In the Finder app, on the sidebar, this folder has a "standard folder" icon, even if it is recognized in the preferences as my Downloads folder (see the attached pictures).
Is there any way to at least make the Finder think that folder as the original Downloads folder?
Or maybe is there a way to manually change its icon?
Please note that I already found some answers to my question on this site, but they seem to not to be compatible with Big Sur.
