    Hey!

    I know how to change icon on individual folders/apps/files on my mac. What I'm trying to figure out though is how to keep the files that way, no matter the computer (pc/mac)

    See, right now, they appear with the new icons on my own Mac, but as soon as I send it to someone else, no matter if it's a pc or a mac user, the file arrives with it's basic icon.

    How do I make sure that the icon will "stay put" so to speak, so that no matter to whom I send the file, they will bi visible with the new icon I've chosen, instead of the original one?


    Thanks!

    You can't. The icon will change depending on the configuration of the user who receives it.
