    Hi,

    I would like too customise my desktop icons (HDD, Connected Server etc)

    I would like to change my Macintosh HD icon to a picture of my 2012 iMac.
    Also my Bootcamp drive to a windows hard drive icon.
    I also have a Lacie d2 drive and a 5big drive which require icons.

    I've googled for them but just can't find any good ones. It would be great if people could post links etc.

    Do you know you can make the Icon look like any picture you see or download?

    For instance, I have a iMac picture downloaded from the net, I open it in preview, select all and copy (Command-C), then click on the Icon you want to change (Lets say of your HD) , get info on it, click on the Icon in Info, it turns a bit blue and then just paste (Command-P).

    If you want Icons you could look into Candybar App and there are plenty of containers with Icons for it.

    Ah, thanks, just did it. I thought it had to be a icon file with diffrent sizes of the same icon in that file... Cheers
