OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?

May 1, 2010

First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

OS X :: Changing Icons On Folder - Background Not Transparent

Oct 8, 2007

I am trying to change the background on some Aliases and folders I created on my desktop. I downloaded some icons in .ico and .png format online, and I am able to use the .png format. I open up the .png file, ctrl-c it, then goto the Alias or Folder I want to change the icon on. I do a "Get Info", then I click on the icon at the top and do a ctrl-v. This changes the icon, but it puts a White background behind the icon. See the screenshot below to see what I am talking about. Screenshot of resulting icon on desktop. Site where I downloaded the icons:

OS X :: Changing Some Icons Via Dock Package Contents

Apr 12, 2010

Trying to change some icons in Leopard. Doing it the manual way, not with candybar. I went into the dock package contents and change the finder icon and trash empty and trash full. I deleted the cache, killed the dock, even rebooted yet it always defaults back to the original leopard icons. If I go back in to the package contents, the new icons I want to use are in there. Having the same issue with all the icons that need to be changed via package contents. System Preferences, VMWare Fusion, and the ones above.

OS X :: Changing Default File Icons - Dock Not Recognize Finder Image

Jul 25, 2009

On my Macbook, running Leopard, I recently changed all my icons. (applications, folders, default files, etc.) I changed the Finder and Trash icons via System/Library/CoreServices. But the Dock won't recognize that the Finder icon has changed-- it's still showing me the old icon. That's Problem 1.

Then I created a new user account, and discovered that on that account the Dock shows the correct Finder image. But Problem 2: the new account doesn't recognize my default file icons. It flashes them for a second when I save the file, and then reverts back to the regular white default image. (Even though all the .icns files are correct in the application's Resources folder.) I really don't want to download Candybar or anything, since I know it can be done without that.

OS X :: Changing My Folder Icons Back To Original?

Oct 3, 2009

So i want to change my folder icons back to their original state, I found a set online with the default leopard icons in PNG format and I tried copying and pasting in the get info screen like you normally would but all i get is that white little preview sheet as the image (see attached screenshot)

I then found out all the original icons are saves in the resources folder so i tried those both in ICNS format and converted one to PNG but still no dice.

OS X :: Looking For Custom Folder Icons In Dock?

Jul 27, 2009

I am customizing my brand new iMac 24". Just switching from M$! I changed the default icon of my folder and I put it on the Dock. Everything fine, but the dock seems to adopt the icon of what it is INSIDE the folder, not the custom icon of the containing folder.

I wonder if I can force Dock to respect the custom icon of the folder (when there are several documents inside the folder, Dock uses the standard icon - not the new, custom one).

OS X :: Changing Icons And Types Of Files

Sep 7, 2010

I know how to change icons but I'm having problem with the type of file. I've managed to change one using the rsrc file type but no other type will work for me such as icns, png or tiff. This is probably something easy. Do they have to be converted into rsrc or is it the OS version I'm running?

OS X :: Changing Icons For Removable Media Possible?

Jun 30, 2009

I have a few removable media devices such as cameras and would like to change the icon when it appears on the desktop as a drive. I figured out how to change the name so each time it comes up it has the unique name but the icon would be awesome. I tried "Get Info" but no help. I guess a follow up would be is there a place to get some slick looking icons also?

OS X :: Changing Multiple Icons Automatically Between Files?

May 24, 2009

Is there an apple script or something that can change icons automatically between files? I have a small movie library, which I created icon files for (with a frame from the movie). I just have to "get info" on each movie individually, and copy the image icon over the movie's generic icon. I can't use poster frames in iTunes/Quicktime because they're not all quicktime compatible, and I didn't want to re-encode everything.

I'm just wondering if it is simple to write a script that will ask for an item (the image), copy it's Icon, then ask for a second item (the movie) and paste the icon to that. If it is possible, the process would go a little faster both now, and for any others I do in the future.

I know how to change Icons when they are in the Ico format but now everytime I download Icon packs the files are coming in PNGs and I have no clue how to make a png my Icon. I'd prefer to be able to do just that if there is a way, if not then is there a free converter? For some reason neither IConverter or PngtoIco will work for me. (I am on Tiger)

OS X :: Cannot Move Dock Icons?

Jan 8, 2009

New Mac owner...

I attempt to drag a dock icon to a new location on the dock, but it won't let me. The other icons don't separate so the icon will drop to the location I want. Randomly, items will separate when I hover over so I could drop the item between them, but only in that spot and no other locations. What am I missing here?

So, I'm unable to put the dock icons exactly where I want them. I've installed all updates.
