    I've been doing a lot of tweaking on my Mac recently.

    The final stage of my 'face-lift' is modifying the icons. I have downloaded 'ClearBlack' icons, and I am using the Black set.

    I have used CandyBar to change all of my system icons (Home, Music, Pictures, Trash etc) and changed my Macintosh HD icon myself.

    Now I want to change all the standard 'blue' folders to one specific icon.

    How can I change them all, without Command + I'ing all the diff. folders? :confused:

    I couldn't get it to, for future ref. would you mind posting how?

    In the end I downloaded Shapeshifter to mod. all the folders in System, etc.. a lot faster than Command + I.

    Post a screen shot of my new Icons, WP and iTunes, and Dock now. :)

    Open CandyBar
    Copy desired icon
    Select "New Folder" (in the CandyBar window, system tab)
    Paste
    Press "Apply System Icons"


    Very nice desktop, by the way

    I thought you could do so with Candy Bar.
