    How do I do this? I can't use Candybar because Microsoft Word is not a "packaged" application (or something like that).

    select the icon you want to use. get info. highlight the image of the icon in the get info window (it'll have a blue border). command+c to copy. close get info window and get info on the Word app. hightlight the word icon and command+v to paste over it. simple as that.

    Thanks for your help! However, this only changes the icon of one particular document. How do I change the icon of all Microsoft Word documents to another icon?

    CandyBar lets you do this.
    But manually, you'll have to ctrl/right click on Microsoft Word > 'Show Package Contents'. Within this, the icon will be there in one of the folders, and you can just replace it that way.
    But I suggest CandyBar really.

    But Microsoft Word is not a packaged application, so when I right-click on its icon there is no "Show package contents" option. Also, Candybar will not let me drag Microsoft Word into the App Extras window because it is not a packaged app.
