    I've just taken over a PowerMac G5 running 10.4.9
    The guy before me has changed a few icons like the application folder icon, mac hd, and external hd's. I want to change them back to default. Is there a quick way to do this?

    I think Candybar, and it's like, have a "Return to factory settings" option, but if it's just a few icons you could just open their info windows (mark the file/folder/disk and hit cmd-I) then click on the icon in the info window (top left) and hit backspace. That should return the icon to the default (in most cases).

    I'll try the backspace when I get to work tomorrow. I don't think he used candybar as I just cleaned up the computer today and that wasn't a program he was using... and believe me... if he was using candybar it would have still been on the computer. This guy didn't delete anything.
