    I have downloaded an icon i want to apply to a file and i have it in png, icns and ico format. When i click on the image in the get info window and paste in the file, it just shows the default .png/.icons/.ico image. How can i make it work properly, showing the actual image itself.

    open both get info windows,copy the icon from the icon which you want to use.Now paste the icon on the other get info window where you want the icon to show,that should work.

    All of their get-info icons, even the .png, are just the default images too. Although the icon displayed in finder for the png's is the actual image itself.
