    Does anyone know where I can get the system preferences icon from Tiger? I really dislike Leopard's.

    Thanks.

    Now you both have me curious. Leopard was my first version of Mac OS X, so I never got to experience the apparent nirvana the Tiger System Prefs icon provided.

    You can use Icon Composer if you have the developer tools installed..
    Otherwise, get it here (I converted it for you): http://www.mediafire.com/file/jzjxxnmzdmz/sysprefs.icns

    When I get to work on Monday, I'll upload the icon. We still have to use Tiger there.

    I was cleaning out boxes today, and I found the box from my white MacBook from 2006. I noticed the System Preferences icon, and I had forgotten how it looked. Some google-fu later, and this is the first thread that pops up.

    Anyone have the System Prefs icon from the Tiger days lurking around on their HDDs? Better yet, anyone have the System Prefs icon from the Tiger days in good ole 512 pix ICNS style?

    Thanks for any info!

    Hi, Here is the Tiger System preferences in PNG format:apple:

    You can convert it by going to iconverticons.com

    Or you can try changing the PNG file to ICNS by changing its extension

    There's really no need to change the icon from png to ico.

    Copy the PNG in Preview, paste it into "Get Info" for System Preferences and voila.
