    Recently converted to a Mac and have had no issues as such this far, but changing icons seems to have a glitch.

    Sure some of you more seasoned users can sort this in seconds...

    I've done everything as many sites instructions so far, but when I paste the icon over it simply changes to the default file pic for .icns files.

    This happens with every icon I've tried to change so any help would be great!

    Thanks

    try this open the icns in preview, click on the main big image so that the first smaller image in the sidebar is not selected and press command-C to copy, then paste it onto the icon using the get info method.
