    You "right" (control) click on the icon your wanting to change (Macintosh HD) for example, and select get info...a little information window will open. simply click on one of the macbook icons, copy it, and then click on the icon in the information window (a blue hue should surround the icon in the information window if done correctly) and hit paste




    EDIT...& no Rdowns, no mooing, and i'm also glad to see no whining about these icons
    Many thanks for the positive response

    Nice icons! Is there a way to restore the original HD icon? And how did you make the icons?:eek: Just curious.

    Using the aqua MacBook one as my HD icon on my iBook. Love the whole reflection type of effect at the bottom. The black looks brilliant in aqua style. Great job. :)

    EDIT: And macsrockmysocks, you can always restore any default OS X icon, but right-clicking > Get Info and then clicking on the icon and hitting the delete key. It'll then bring back the original icon.

    Select the new icon (by "Get Info" or Cmd-i) and copy it or Cmd-c; then select the icon you'd like to replace and paste it or Cmd-v.

    Sorry if my directions aren't very clear. :eek:

    And you're only trying to change your Mac HD icon? Hm... Have you tried deleting the existing one (just for kicks-- I have no clue how to help you out)?

    Good news: I found out the reason why I can't is because it wont let me select copy

    Bad news: I don't know how to enable the copying

    Edit: Ok I got it. I was clicking on the big icon, not the small one on the upper left side of the window.

    Cool... Are these used to replace HD icons or what? What else do people use them for?

    Hmm... I don't know why, but I just stuck these as my HD icons on my old iBook G4 and all of a sudden it's mooing randomly every few minutes... What the heck's the deal? :confused:







    *snicker snicker* :p

    When replacing the hard drive icon there seems to be a lot of space underneath - above the text. Wanting to use 'Macbook Aqua.icns' - it's beautiful. Not familiar with .icns - none of the other icons in my collection end with that extension. Am I missing something? Don't get me wrong, nice work!
