I tried everything from lots of forums and nothing works! help please
I take it you've tried teh following?
1. Select the icon you want to change your Safari icon to.
2. Choose "Get Info" from the File Menu, or click command-I.
3. Click the icon in the upper left of the info window.
4. Choose "Copy" from the Edit menu (or type command-C).
5. Select your Safari app and "Get Info" for it.
6. Click the icon in the upper left of the info window.
7. Select "Paste" (command-V) from the Edit Menu.
This should change the app itself, you'll need to drag it into the dock to change it there though.
Maybe there are more steps to change a standard application's icon. It may be a locked program or something along those lines, where you can't manipulate its resources the way you would normally do.
I suggest looking specifically how to change the Safari icon.
Perhaps you have to unlock the permissions for Safari first.
1) Go to Applications in the Finder
2) Right-Click Safari
3) Get Info
4) Sharing & Permissions is at the bottom of the panel, click the little lock icon
5) Type your system password to unlock
6) You may have to change the permissions shown for Everybody to "Read & Write"
What's wrong with your Safari icon?
!!!!the best reply. If you tried everything with no luck, try this!!!!!!
Out of all the solutions to this problem yours is the best . I have spent a whole day trying to change safari icon, not because I really needed it, but because I wanted to figure out what i was doing wrong. I downloaded 2 different apps, one of them is called Img2Icns (great app. and a free version) I was able to change FireFox icon, but Safari wouldn't work. Your #4 step of the answer solved my problem and I was easily able to change the icon. If I could mark "best answer" to the question it would definitely be yours. Thank you
Why there has to be something wrong with it? Why can't it just be about customizing your Mac.
^^ he's right. Any of the Apps that ship with the system require you to unlock permissions in order to change the icons. I figured it out after much frustration, but now I've got an awesome black Safari logo to match my Dock.
Candybar works easy for any application.
