    I'm running a program with a really ugly icon, I already obtained an .ico file which will make it look better, so how can I change it?

    Thanks GGJstudios!, didn't work though, I have the .ico file and it looks fine, but when I paste it, it doesn't show up the new icon, just the "preview with ico" icon, hope I can fix this.

    Also, are you knowledgeable with CrossOver?

    Did you double-click the .ico file to open it in Preview, then Command-C to copy it, then go to step 2 in the directions?

    Yay, that fixed it! :) thanks once again. ( I didn't open it with preview first)

    EDIT: Is there a way to make it look "sharper" around the edges?
