    Is there a way i can change the icons on my OS X without having to do it one by one?

    I just downloaded this icon pact:
    http://interfacelift.com/icons-mac/details.php?id=1616

    I would like to do it all at once insted of doing it one by one which will takes ages. Thank you.

    If you have any other nice pacts please post them, thank you.

    Yes. If you want to buy CandyBar; I'd recommend CandyBar Plus because it also comes with Pixadex.

    theres also normal CandyBar with allows you to change your icon set 25 times (i think) for free.

    more icon questions...

    I also have some icon changing questions....

    is there anyway to restore the default set? do i still have the original icons anywhere?

    Also, I changed my mail icon, but if I open mail and then quit again, it goes back to the original. The icon in the applications folder stays changed. Thoughts?

    I'm guessing you've already tried this but just in case; drag Mail icon out of the dock and then drag it from the apps folder into the dock again. :eek: Sorry, that's my bestest idea.

    I thought I read that to restore an icon do a get info, select icon (upper left corner) and hit delete key. But it doen't work for an app icon I just changed. HELP!:confused:

    Which app are you talking about iTwitch? Maybe post a screen shot showing what the icon is after you press DELETE. :)

    I was just testing, so I changed the icon for the game gltron. No big deal, I'll just have to learn to associate Charlie Brown with a light cycle. ;)

    thanks, but unfortunately that doesn't work. It's weird... sometimes it will stay as the new icon and sometimes it won't.

    how about restoring defaults? not possible?

    Is there an icon cache? You could try the cache cleaning feature of MainMenu?
