    Is there any way that I can change the skin of Finder from the brushed metal to something similar of Firefox/Mail.app? I have tried using Uno and that gave the perfect result, but it also changed my other apps too. Changing the Uno settings to 'Default Aqua' for all except finder failed also, as it still changed Firefox.

    So does anyone know how to get rid of the horrible metal texture of Finder and replace it with something a little more consistent, and without changing any other apps (except other metal textured ones)?

    Thanks,
    -Ollie

    Bump - nobody got any ideas?

    Oh forgot to mention, this is OS 10.4.11 :)

    I don't think you can edit the brushed metal look of the finder without upgrading to leopard or snow leopard.

    Apple has made it so that its nearly impossible to use a different theme (or alter the existing theme). There were a few apps back in the day to do this, but they introduced performance stability issues, or if they didn't do that, they altered system files which is even more risky.

    Learn to live with the brushed metal, or use a different OS - I use fedora for the most part.
