    Ok so I use MatLab a lot and the file type is '.m' , but for quick viewing I have TextEdit open them by default. Since the Finder sees the '.m' files as TextEdit documents it makes it hard to see them sometimes.

    Is there any way to change the default icon on specific files (like MatLab's .m files). So that I can easily see which files are which?

    Does that make sense?

    Ok I figured it out. Right-Click Textedit and "Show Package Contents" and then I found the icons resource file. I'll change that and I think that should take care of it.

    Anymore advice is still welcome.

    I have candybar, but it doesn't let us choose between excel files, odt files, word files, etc... when it comes to changing icons. any other ideas?
