    On OS X (10.1.5) how do I change the icons for things like folders? and I know that in OS 9.1 if I did change the icons, transparencies didn't work, it made the empty space gray....did that change in X?

    and where do I go to modify the properties of the folder window? like the background color and other things.

    You mean change the icons globally or just for one folder?

    Right-click the folder, app or icon that you wish to use. Select "Show Info", then do a command-C copy. Go to the folder that you wish to use the icon on and bring up "Show Info" for it. Now do a command-V paste. That should do it.

    Go to the folder of choice and bring down the "View" menu. Click "View Options". It's near the bottom.

    I've changed all my default icons. You'll need an os x resource editor and then go after HIToolbox.rsrc found in

    /system/library/frameworks/carbon.framework/versions/a/frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/versions/a/resources/HIToolbox.rsrc

    make sure you back it up.
