    So I admit yosemite is growing on me (Although I'm going to use earlier OSX versions as VMs), but they still are using the ugly trash can icon!

    Eh... it doesn't bother me at all. Though its too bad we can't really use CandyBar to change things like we used to be able to.

    I think it looks way better than the old one.

    What happened to CandyBar?

    But it is not as good as the REALLY old one in System 7 - not the official one, but the "grouch trash can": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE7EWDKVM1Y

    Can we get that one back?

    Your signature is very odd. Why ignore people just because they are new to this site?

    That's cute!

    On topic, I love the new trash icon, so please don't replace it.

    Too many posts are made where the answer is available by searching the forum.

    CB Has been broken since 10.8. So not much of a loss. Also, there is Liteicon.

    Replace it yourself.

    Why don't you replace it yourself if you hate it so much...?

    Jesus I swear so many complaints on here are straight up moronic. The next time someone complains about an icon............

    Basically after 10.7 it wasn't as functional as it used to be, because Apple changed things.

    I have to say that's one of the icons that changed that I'm disappointed with. The Finder and the trash can are both icons that I think Apple largely whiffed on.

    Agreed. The level complaints here about nothing are bordering on the psychotic. It's insane how poorly people deal with change, doesn't matter how small.

    Come on guys, replace the awful trash can!

    Hey were you using CandyBar to change the dock icons before installing Yosemite? I just want to know if after installing 10.10 all icons changed to the new Yosemite icons with no issues.




    Haha. Agreed!

    ----------

    Yes, that's why it's now free and unsupported. LiteIcon is a great alternative.

    You have no idea how much time they spent crafting a trash can.

    I don't understand the hate for the Trash Can and Finder icons. There are many icons in Yosemite that are worse:
    - Safari
    - Reminders
    - Calendar (ugh!)
    - Notes
    - Half of the icons in System Preferences

    Granted, a lot of the icons that are terrible are just reincarnations of the unholy blunders that were the original iOS 7 icons (created by Apple's web and print department - great delegation Jony!)

    The Jony didn't design these icons. He has a team of designers that make icons and make design choices but he has some say (possibly final say) because he's the boss, thats it. I asked my dad (53) and he was largely pleased with Yosemite's icons after complaining about iOS 7 on the first few days he couldn't find his apps.

    Well, yes and no. ;)

    I haven't used Candybar since I was on Snow Leopard. After Lion, I think, is when Apple locked the Dock down to where it couldn't be modified. At that point, I gave up customizing most things on my Mac's.

    However, I still use it on my PowerMac G5, with Leopard, and have it themed with Star Trek.

    Ah ok but do you know if there would be any issues replacing the customized icons with Yosemite's?

    Ooh that's so cool! :D
