    Question Changing Icons
    Hey, everybody. I have changed my icons once or twice using Candy Bar (trial version, if that means anything) but have a question. How do I go about changing the icons back? I'm not exactly sure how to do it, and although I'm sure this is a dumb question (one I could probably have figured out after a while) I am still quite confused. Thanks in advance for any input.

    I am pretty sure you just drag the new icon off the window (top right) and the old one will be restored.

    problem solved
    right click on the folder you want to change the icon for .
    click get info.
    then just drag the new icon over the old and it should change automaticaly.

    i hope this is simple enough to solve your problem

    Mbfuller, I have done this, but only some of the icons have changed. Perhaps there is a place where I can download the default icon set. Do you know of anywhere I can do that? Thank you for your help, anyway.

    No way I can tell. So what happens to the remaining custom icons when dragging them off of the top right pane?

    Before doing all the tedious replacing, try right clicking the icon > Get Info (or Command+I), then click on the small icon preview on the top left of the new open window, and hitting backspace (delete).

    I believe CandyBar has a command to restore the defaults.

    Yes, it does. That didn't seem to work, either. However, I figured it out, and did it manually by clicking "get info" on the icon, selecting the icon's image and clicking return. That restored the icon. Thanks for all your help!
