    So I just downloaded a nice set of glassy looking folder icons to replace the ones in my Finder.

    And..ermm..... now I don't know how to replace the preinstalled ones with the new ones !!! :eek:

    Anyone care to help me out with this? I'd be ever so grateful! Thanx! :)

    Did these icons come as .icns files or as folders with the icons preinstalled on them?

    Edit: Oh, you want to replace all of your folder icons? So they came as .icns files?

    CandyBar is probably the easiest way to change the system icons imo.

    Thank You !

    Since I wasn't able to find this original thread this morning when I looked for it, even with using the search tool, I started another thread.. same topic. I though perhaps my original thread of last night got lost in cyberspace or something crazy like that. I apologize for the double thread.

    At any rate, I got everything worked out with Candycane and I'm good to go.

    Thanx for your help and suggestions. :)
