    Hello

    I want to download some custom icons but my question is how can I restore all the icons back to the default osx icons if I needed to change them back?

    How are you installing them?? If you are doing them 'by hand', individually, all you have to do is command-I, click on the icon and press delete.

    CandyBar is a great app which allows you to easily use custom icons, and also saves a backup of the original to re-apply at anytime. (There is a 30-day free trial of CandyBar)

    You have to select the icon in the window that comes up. That is, press command+i, click on the icon in the resulting window, press delete.

    Weird...it worked the second time I tried.

    Since I dont want to post another thread, can someone tell me if there is a way to change all folders all at once insted of one by one?

    CandyBar (as recommended by 20rogersc) will do this for you.
