I've done a search but can't find the answer I'm looking for.

I've downloaded icons many many times but only know how to change folder icons (and one's where you press control + I), but there are icons for things like burn, finder, recycle bin (with the two alternates) etc where pressing control + I does nothing - how do I change these? I've looked around my computer but can't seem to find anything in terms of folders etc...

Please help, AppleTalk hasn't failed me yet... Thanks!

I used to change all the icons about. I used a program called candybar (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/8948) to do it. Give it a try. :)

THANKS!!! It's exactly the sort of thing I was after. Love AppleTalk. :)

the other way you can do it is to copy an image into the clipboard. Select the thing you want to change the icon of, view the info page (command+i), select the icon in the info view and paste in the image from the clipboard.

Nice one Bartron. I always thought it had to be an icon file.

I just did it with MadMuggle&#39;s Union Jack avatar onto a pdf on the desktop.

The icon does seem to be a bit small though...

It&#39;s handy in a pinch (and for &#39;random whim&#39; changes....much like avatars these days). The image you paste should scale to its maximum size or 128x128 (or whatever the largest icon size is in OS X these days)....but yes, the icon in the info view is small.
