    That'll teach you. As far as I knew, the Finder icon couldn't be changed automatically so congrats!

    I'll need to email it to you as you can't upload files like that on the forum.

    EDIT: If you don't want to send me your email address, then try looking in /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/ for a file called 'Finder.icns'.

    Hey while you're at it, where do i find the dashboard icon file. I change the icon in finder but it always reverts back to the original when i reinsert it into the dock. This is the only icon that does this to me. Thanks, vic.

    I definitely recommend CandyBar for anyone messing with system icons...its just so much easier...

    Not to sure about the dashboard icon.

    However, to make your Finder icon changes permanent you have to do the following.

    1. Replace the icon with your icon of choice as usual.
    2. Trash a file called "com.apple.dock.iconcache", which can be found by doind a system search as shown in my screenshot.
    3. Your changes should now be permanent.
