I love your website. I’m new to mac, and love tricking my mac with the great
stuff you have here.

I have a question, though. How the heck do I change an icon? I messed up
something, and now my iTunes folder has an icon that has the pdf logo.

Thanks, Josh

Josh,

Welcome to Mac. I have you covered.

Here is a free app that does it automatically. It is called Micon.

Or you can do it manually with this tutorial from Apple: Change My Icons

Hope that helps.

PS, if you want to practice, there are some great icons for Mail.app here

    At the risk of being booed off the Freeware stage, CandyBar is a great, cheap app ($12.95) for changing even the most stubborn icons in OS X.
