    My Microsoft icons won't behave
    Hi new friends,

    I thank you in advance for any help. My Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, as well as other text files, *CHANGE*. How? Their usual default icons are correct during boot, then switch to resemble the text that is written on them. I know this is normal, I just don't want them to look like the document itself.

    Could someone please let me know how to make the icons look like their default icons. They look nicer as the originals. Thanks so much!

    View > Show View Options
    Un-check the "Show icon preview" box.

    Thanx so much. That was a fabulous solution! Is there any way to apply the Hide View Options across the entire OS X system? Instead of having to continue going to View in every folder. A way to default the whole system would be groovy!!
