    I know that you can change the iTunes icon in the application's folder, but the real icon still appears in different places in iTunes, for example if you try and delete a song.

    Is it possible to change the icon everywhere?

    Thanks :)

    Best regards

    yes, swap all the icons in this folder with the icons you want. they have to be the exact same name.
    Code:
    /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/

    Thanks for your reply :)

    I can find a file called iTunes.icns in the Ressources folder and that icon has already been changed, but I can't find any other icons that I can change. Can you tell me the names of these?

    basically all the files in there called something.icns is an icon used for something in itunes.
    I would think it would have been the icon you had there...
    maybe its this bad boy - but I don't know, you can mess around with them.
    Code:
    /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/iTunesHelper.app/Contents/Resources/

    I can see a lot of .icns files, but they are all shown on a piece of paper and nothing seems to happen if I replace them nor does anything happen if I replace the iTunesHelper. Or so it seems, but I haven't tried changing all of them yet, maybe that will do the trick.

    Anyway, I'll play around with it, thank you for helping me out :)

    the ones on a sheet of paper are the icons you see on different audio files, before quick look makes a preview that is.

    I know that if I for instance drag an mp3 file to my desktop I will see an icon on a sheet of paper before Quicklook recognizes it, but I don't suppose that this is the case for the icons on a sheet of paper with the icns ending in the resources folder?
