Dislike the New White Trash Can Icon? Change It!
Apple introduced and seeded OS X 10.10 beta to developers at WWDC 2014. Since then, one of the most consistent complaints has been about the OS X Yosemite icons, especially the Finder and Trash Can icons. Pfft! Don’t whine, change the default OS X Trash Can, Finder or whatever icons — it’s fast, easy and free!
Running OS X 10.8 or earlier? Panic Software’s CandyBar is the utility for managing Mac icons. However, CandyBar won’t ever be updated again and does NOT run on newer versions of Apple’s desktop operating system.
Both CandyBar and LiteIcon offer near instant gratification with drag-n-drop simplicity. And, yes, both are free.
Of course, if you prefer to do your OS X system modding the old fashioned way, by hand, then check out this how to article.
So, now that you’ve got a hammer, you need some nails.
