How to change icons on OSX 10.11.3

iMac (21.5 inch), end of 2013

2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 processor

8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory

IMac drive

Intel Pro Iris 1536 MB graphics card


I like the 3D icons and bright and I'm working on for the past 6 years.

To Yosemite, I used Candybar (part of it), of LiteIcon and change permissions on 'Get information' in the order superior use my icons favorite.

This last step is the most important, but now, with EL Capitan Osx 10.11 system doesn't let me change these permissions because, even as an administrator, it is forbidden.

I am very angry and I think that this situation is a violation of freedom of expression.

Apple support could not help me.

¿May someone do?

Thank you, best regards and good life.

FWIW, you can turn off System Protection (SIP) integrity that should allow you to change icons. It is not something I would recommend but if you care more icons of security that belongs to you. It is pretty easy to know how to do.

    I was hoping I could customize my favorites by creating my own icons files I have in Internet Explorer. For example, in IE I can do a right-click on the bookmark in Favorites toolbar, select properties from the context menu, then click the button change icon, and I can choose any file icon I created. The chart appears in the bookmark. I love it! Can I do this in Firefox?

    Thank you for any information,

  • How to change color text icon in Windows 7?

    I spent an hour of Googling with no response.

    I tried other forums without success.

    The only answers I can find only apply to Windows XP.

    I want to change the color of the text on the icons on my desktop and I'm running Windows 7 64.

    I had to to the title of the window color and appearance, and went down to the police of icon, but the color is grayed out and I can't change it much matter what I do.

    I can only change the size and the police, but not the color.

    The thing is, I know there is a way to change the color of the text, because he was black and I was messing around with a few different options and know that it's white and after about an hour and a half of googling and trying to figure out what I did I can not yet understand how to change it back.

    I took a screenshot of the area is gray and me being not able to change the setting, but I didn't know how to post it here, so I just did my avatar.

    It can be quite difficult to do, but it's the best I know how to do.

    Help, please.

    There is no way simple and direct way to change the font color of desktop in Windows 7.  From what I see, Windows will judge the background color and the font color of black if the background is bright, but you have to log market again to see this change - at least sometimes.

    There is a downloadable freeware tool called TransText which allows editing directly.  Note: I have not personally used this tool.  And there is a secondary problem with the evolution of a light dark police using a tool like this, and that is that you have to disable the 'shadow' effect in the performance Options dialog box. When Windows performs the change she manages both the shadow.

    Keep in mind that the "BOLD" of the police Variant can be selected, which makes it a little easier to read.
