    I have a problem when I attempt to change icons.

    I know the method of using "Get Info", copy, paste is standard, but recently when I hit "Get Info" for the icon I want to use it only gives me the the file type icon, such as PNG, rather than the icon that I want to use.

    I know it's tough to explain so I can take a screen cap if you don't quite understand. I tried using CandyBar but even then it wouldn't give me the option to change the icons I wanted to, which are only the MS Office icons (Nothing fancy.)

    Thanks for your help.

    Quick bump.

    anyways could you please post a picture, you have me confused. And also why doesn't candybar work? I have gotten it to change any icons i want, I've never had a problem.

    Sorry about the bump.

    In the attached picture, CandyBar does not offer all of my installed applications, such as MS Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. I have since corrected the problem of icon changing with those (No idea how), but yeah, that was the problem.

    Now I look like a liar.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've been having the same problem too. I've been using Candybar, and I can't change any of my MS app icons. Thoughts?
