    Same question, Changing them manually seems long and hard... any easier way to install Textcons?

    And after i change my icons manually, with the copy past way, how can i change them back to the way thier were originally? Is there a file full of all my icons somwhere on my HDD ?

    To get rid of icons . . .

    • 'Command-I' on the icon in question
    • Click on the icon in the top left corner of window
    • Press 'Delete'.
    If using CandyBar, just click 'Restore' in the bottom right corner of the window (I think :rolleyes: )

    Thanks, i got Candy bar, it does exactly what i wanted it to do!
    The Desktop looks great, the icons are great, but some programs like CoreDouTemp have that gross icon hahaha that doesnt fit with the rest, how can i make like CDT or Dou or something text based to replace it with?
