    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    In addition to the Get Info as advised, you can change the icon picture. This is especially useful for folders.

    In the top left of the Get Info window you should see a small image. That can be changed with the copy-paste method. Select and copy a favorite image, then click the Info image, then Edit-Paste.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    And if you're like me and prefer the keyboard for most tasks, command+I. Same thing.
