    Hi,

    Try this...

    Hard Drive > Users > {your home folder - My own is called Ian} > Downloads.

    Drag the downloads folder back to a desire location in the Dock - Job done.

    Regards.

    Hi,

    Its a pleasure - Its also difficult to follow what it is you are trying to achieve - Sorry about this but could you explain further?

    Cheers.

    "The way it was before, only the new list of downloads that i have made will show up under that icon .if u click on your download icon next to the trash you will notice that ONLY the recent downloads are there and thats what i am trying to put back."

    You have not perceived it well. All the completed downloads are available from that dock folder not just recent ones.

    Hi,

    Don't worry about the time or the trouble - That is why Sig and myself are here!

    I think Sig is right here. Maybe even I am too. The downloads folder is as I and Sig have suggested.

    Did we miss something?

    Regards to both.

    Just put download folder back in dock, and it should right itself after a few downloads. I understand what you are trying to say and mine works that way as well in fan view.

    Meanwhile

    Try clicking on your download folder after you drag it to the Dock, click on (?) more in finder at the top, then when finder window opens, click 2nd view pref from left then click Date Modified and it will bring the most recent downloads to the top
