    Maybe I'm just retarded.

    Last I checked... you opened "get info" for whatever folder icon you wanted to change, copy and then paste the new image to the upper left icon of the Get Info box.

    Well, I have the glass folder icons and since the new stack display folder thing came into play I want to change my Applications, Downloads, etc... to the glass ones.

    How do yah do it?! :confused:

    Thanks :)

    -Mike

    It could be that you first have to run these glass folder icons through pic2icon so that the thumbnail has the icon showing it.

    Open get info for the folder you want to change AND for the icon folder as well. Copy and paste between the two 'get info' screens. That is how I do it :D

    alright, thanks I finally got it to work.

    but

    I accidentally change some folders icons which I didn't want to and can't get it back to the original. (I tried un-do)

    What should I do now?

    :(

    nevermind! i got it!

    If anyone is wondering the answer to my question all I did was open "Get Info" for the folder I wanted to change back to the original, clicked/highlighted the icon at the top left of the get info box, clicked edit, then cut.

    and waallaa. :)

    Manual change of icons ?

    Hi,

    I like the way the Glass Icon look, for my new MBA, but do you have to change the icons manually one by one or is there a process to update them all at once ? And then a process to bring them back to default all at once as well ?

    If it has to be manual, would really be a pain...

    Thanks...

    download an application called LiteIcon, it can change all the folder icons.

    if you want the ability to change a lot more icons, and have $30 extra dollars, check out CandyBar

    Candybar 3

    For any kind of icon or dock customization, I always have to recommend Panic's Candybar 3. It makes overall customization dead simple and efficient. Find it here:

    www.panic.com

    and I get most of my icons and docks here:
