    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.

    thats it!:)

    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 :apple: + 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 :apple: + C to copy the icon set (this is more than just a simple image..).

    Then press :apple: + 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/
