When I bought my mac, first thing I did was change the look of my desktop and folder the reason being I like lots of colors around me. I do love Mac but I the boring grey color of Mac folders and files was kind of dull and that’s why I keep on changing Mac’s icons. If you too love to experiment different icons of you Mac folders and files then there are lots of apps available to change your Mac icons and my favorite one is LiteIcon as its easy and quick to use.

4. Now select the icon, which you want to change, it will be highlighted in blue.
5. Next click on “Edit” and “Paste” the copied icon.
