You Can, I Can, We All Can Switch Our Icon

April 6, 2007

OS X has a beautiful interface. Every volume, application, file, and folder on your Mac is represented by an icon. The default icons look great at any size. While uniformity can be good, it is nice to sometimes have the ability to customize; make your computer your own. One way to do this is to change the icons.

There is a manual way to change an icon. See this helpful Apple website for directions: Lesson 6: Change My Icons. There is also a program that simplifies the process, its called Micon.

Micon is a FREE program that gives you Drag & Drop simplicity for changing icons. It doesn’t supply you with the icons, but the icons can be gotton from other places for free also.
