How to reset icons?

I have changed the icons of my, Movies, Pictures and music folder. Is there any way to revert the changes to the old icons?

Or maybe someone could post a download of all the orignal apple-icons.

Would appreciate some help here

Get info (command I) click on icon in top left corner, Command X should revert it to its original icon.

Reset ALL icons

Is there any way to reset ALL icons though? That is good for taking out one at a time, but is there any way to reset EVERY icon?

well have you used the application candy bar to change any of them? simply copying and pasting the icon in get info just pastes and icon on the original. candy bar replaces the icons in the system folder with a backup. if you used candy bay then just choose "restore icons". if you did the copy and paste method then you have to do what the 2nd post said to every icon.

if you are using an icon-changing app (such as CandyBar), there is an option to restore all icons. as far as i know, though, there is no way to reset all custom-set icons at once; you have to use the Get Info/Delete method.

Thank you so much! I had Quick Dropped my desktop folder in Candybar, and the Restore Icons button couldn't revert it. Dragging a new icon onto its spot in Candybar couldn't even change it. This just fixed everything. Even the sidebar icon in Finder reverted back. Thanks again!

I think its because The ical icon shows the date, and therefore it changes with each day, so i guess in order for it to change, you wold need to figure out how to change every day of the year

I had this problem too. There is a second app icon called App-empty.icns that you have to replace. The App.icns only appears when the program isn't running. When iCal is running, it draws the day number on top of the App-empty.icns. It's in the resources folder right beside the App.icns.
