Did you know that on your Mac you aren’t just stuck to using the same old boring icons everyone else uses? Apple even has a support guide to help you here! It’s super easy.
Copy Image to Clipboard
One way to do this is:
- Get the image that you would like to use and open it up in Preview.
- Select All (⌘A)
- Copy (⌘C)
Select Desired File or Folder
- Select “Get Info” from Right Click Menu
- Click on the image at the top of the info box so that it is highlighted in blue
- Paste (⌘V)
Change it back
Decided that your custom image isn’t quite all you hoped and dreamed? That’s ok, it’s really easy to change it back.
- Select “Get Info”
- Click the image so it’s highlighted
- Cut (⌘X)
That’s it! Super simple custom icons!
