OS X :: How To Change Normal HDD Icon To A SSD Icon

Jan 19, 2010

I'm afraid I'm having a Windows user moment. Sometimes I still fail to do things the easy, intuitive way, even after roughly 4 years in OS X. I have 5 hard drives in my Mac Pro, one of them is my boot Intel SSD. I want that icon to be distinct from the others (another is a Time Machine drive). I've downloaded two files that would work for me, one was a png and the other a .ico file, but when I copy the icon from the top left corner of the 'get info' pane on the desired file, and then paste it int he correlating top left corner of the SSD 'get info' pane, it pastes the generic PNG or ICO icon, not the actual icon image I desire.

OS X :: Static Background Of Normal Size And Cursor Cannot Moves To An Icon?

Jan 24, 2010

Not familiar with the mac at all, as this post will demonstrate On the desktop, the background is now expanded and when you move the cursor, it navigates by an annoying combination moving the cursor and moving the background until an icon is under the arrow. I screwed around with the display and some other preferences, but i cant figure out which setting I need to modify to get it back to a static background (of normal size) and a cursor that moves to an icon.

OS X Mavericks :: Icon Hidden Behind Application Icon On Dock

Aug 31, 2014

I have this icon behind the Application icon on the dock and I cannot figure out what it is. It is not something on the desktop as I have moved the dock and can't see it, so it is definitely connected with the Application icon. I have deleted all downloads which could have been half done and I have removed an Alias I had in the Application folder. Now all the Applications appears as "Applications" in the "Kind" column when viewing in Finder.

OS X :: Attempting To Change Icon

Jan 16, 2009

I have a problem when I attempt to change icons. I know the method of using "Get Info", copy, paste is standard, but recently when I hit "Get Info" for the icon I want to use it only gives me the the file type icon, such as PNG, rather than the icon that I want to use. I know it's tough to explain so I can take a screen cap if you don't quite understand. I tried using CandyBar but even then it wouldn't give me the option to change the icons I wanted to, which are only the MS Office icons (Nothing fancy.)

OS X :: How To Change Folder Icon

Apr 28, 2009

You know how in your users folder you have a lot of folders (named Downloads, Documents, Music, Movies, etc), they have icons on them. How can I attach one of them to a regular folder?

OS X :: Main HD Icon Won't Change

Jul 23, 2009

I seem to have a glitch preventing me from changing my internal HD icon. I have no troubles changing icons for folders or external drives, but since recently getting myself a new internal, it just stays on the default. I even tried using CandyBar (was doing the other changing by hand) but that thinks the icon I want is already applied, although it doesn't display in Finder or anything like that. Reapplying or trying to use a different icon doesn't work either. (And the icon works fine when I apply it to other things, just not drive I want it to work on.) Does any one know how to fix this? The horrible drive icon is bugging me; I'm used to the pretty one that matches my other drives.

(I should probably add, I can change the default internal drive icon using CandyBar, but this isn't what I want since that changes both my HD icon and my Windows partition icon and I want them to be different and since Windows is NTFS, this seems like the easiest way to change it's icon. I'm open to suggestions which involve a different method of changing the windows partition icon.)

OS X :: Trying To Change Icon Of Macintosh HD

Dec 10, 2009

I was trying to change the icon of my "Macintosh HD" on my iMac. I'd done this earlier on my Macbook Pro, and I had the same problem as I'm having now. I eventually got it done on the 'Book Pro but I don't remember what I had to do. When clicking "Get Info", in the left-top corner the icon isn't there. It's blank and says "png". Why does the icon not show up? I can't copy-paste it, and it's stuck that way.

OS X :: How To Change Mail/Outlook Icon?

Oct 16, 2010

I'm using Outlook 2011 and decided to change its dock icon. Everything works great, but each time when I receive an e-mail and thus the dock email notification appears, the icon will switch back to the original Outlook icon. Only after I've checked my e-mail will the icon switch back to my custom icon again.

Is there a way to retain my custom icon even upon receiving the e-mail notification on the dock icon?

OS X :: Change Mac Mini Computer Icon

Nov 26, 2010

I want to be able to change the computer icon on my new 2010 Mac mini. I've read several places that all of the icons are held in /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources. Well, I've gone there, and I cannot find the Mac mini 2010 icon. Every single other computer is there, including the old pre-2010 minis, except for my computer itself. So, where is the icon in the system?

OS X :: Can't Change Hard Drive Icon

Apr 17, 2006

I'm having some trouble changing my hard disk's icon... I can't select it in Get Info to paste in a new icon. It happened randomly after I pasted in one icon, subsequently I couldn't select the icon again...

I have tried repairing permissions and my disk (just via Apple's Disk Utility) and that did absolutely nothing.

I haven't tried changing it over Target Disk Mode and for all I know that might work... but I would kind of like to be able to change my icon without turning off my computer.

I remember in OS 9 you had to make sure File Sharing on the disk was off before you were allowed to modify the icon. I'm aware that that's not how it works in OS X but I tried it for good measure anyway to no avail.

I'm running 10.4.6 on a MacBook Pro 2 GHz. The drive whose icon I'm trying to change is my Startup Disk. I have ~10GB/100GB free on it.

I recently installed the whole Boot Camp deal and (obviously) had to repartition my disk. Afterwards my Mac HD was unaccessible until I ran Disk Utility off my install CD to repair it. Although this icon problem cropped up about a week after the install, I suppose it's possible that it could be related. Interestingly enough, I'm having no problems changing my Windows partition's icon.
