Students have been asking me how I got the floral icons on my desktop. Changing desktop icons on a Mac is not as intuitive as Windows but it’s not hard. Go to a search engine and search for free Mac desktop icons. I found my lovely floral ones.
1.Download the icons and they will appear in a folder in your applications folder.
2. Go to the folder and click on one of the icons. Right click and find the Get Info on the tab which comes up.
3. Find the picture of the icon in the top left of the box which opens. Highlight. Go to the EDIT menu on the tool bar at the top of the screen and select COPY.
4. Now go to a folder icon you wish to replace. Click on it. Right click and select Get Info. When you see the folder icon top left in the box again, highlight it by clicking on it.Go to the toolbar at the top and select EDIT and then PASTE. Voilà!
