    Ive had great fun over the past few weeks messing with Leopard and my new macbook, altering aqua scrollbars, adding quicklook plugins and altering folders/icons etc.

    For the most part, ive kept backups just in case. Original folder icons etc all backed up.

    However I got a little too keen and didnt back up application icons (original ones) Althougth Im happy with what I have now, I cant find anywhere any original icons.

    Anyone know where I can find them for future reference?

    Cheers

    I'm assuming all you did was replaced the icon via the usual method: Opening the Get Info window and pasting the new icon in place of the old one. Restoring the old icon is simple: Just open the Get Info window, select the icon, and press Delete. Poof, the custom icon is gone, and the old icon is back.

    Another option is the application Candybar.

    what if

    what if you edited a folder icon. it doesn't do that, does anyone know a link to a website with the original folder icons to download?
