Replace an icon with a new.icns file
There are two ways to replace an icon on your Mac: one is to create a new.icns file on your Mac, or you can download one from a site like Deviantart. If you’re using a Mac, the first option is probably the easiest. Download the icon from the site, and then copy the file using either the Get Info option or Command+C.
A freeware application called LiteIcon is another option. It will allow you to change the icon of your system, application, or Finder. The program will even change the icon of any file in your Mac. Just be sure to authenticate any changes to Apple.
Firstly, make sure you’re an administrator account. Only your administrator account has access to the system icons folder. Once you’ve got that, click the Finder icon in the Dock to open the Go to Folder window. Next, select the folder where you want to save the new icon. You’ll want to give it the same name as the old icon.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to launch the app to see the new icon. It might take a few minutes to see the new icon on your mac, so make sure you’re patient! If you’re not sure whether or not you’ve succeeded, try to re-install the app.
Alternatively, you can use an img2icns application to change the icon. It comes in free and paid versions, although the free version offers limited features. Img2icns converts images to icons. Then, simply drag the new icon to the target file or folder.
You can also use Automator to convert PNG files to ICNS files. Just download the workflow, open it, and select the file type. When you’re done, Automator will convert the PNG file to an ICNS file automatically. This is a great way to automate a common task, or to create a new desktop icon for your Mac.
Creating a new icon on your Mac is easy if you know how to copy an image. You can do this in the Finder using the Finder and copy the new icon onto the clipboard. You can also drag the file over the existing icon to replace it. Be sure to use a password when making any changes, as some Finder changes may require you to enter your password.
