What is the best way to change system icons? Is there a 3rd party app?
select icon you want to use - Apple + C (Copy)
select folder/file you want to change - right click/ctrl click - select get info
click on the small icon - top left
Then Apple-V to paste in the new icon.
candybar to change a lot...cost some $$$.
There is also a way to change 1 icon of an app, or 1 file, but if your looking for a system wide change, you should use candybar.
Edit---Beaten by reubs for candybar, and stevehp about the slow, free way.
Press + I on the icon you want to use (i.e. in my case My Pictures).
Select the wee image like I have done in the picture. Then press + C to copy the icon set (this is more than just a simple image..).
Then press + I on the new folder/icon you want to change, and do the save as above but instead of copying, you are pasting apple: + V).
There is 3rd party icon sets you can download too: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/icons_screensavers/
Thanks guys. Candy Bar looks perfect..
