How do you use the icons that you get from the downloads page?

PC or Mac? (Or rhythm and blues?)

Here's what you need to do (on Vista, but it appears this hasn't changed a bit from XP):

  1. Right click on whatever folder/shortcut/etc. you want to give an icon to, and choose "Properties".
  2. Go to the "Customize" tab.
  3. Click on the "Change Icon..." button that should be near the bottom of the window.
  4. Click "Browse..." in the dialog that pops-up.
  5. Go to the folder where you un-zipped the icons in the next dialog that pops up, and choose the one you wish to use.
  6. Click "Open" in that window, and "OK" in the others, of course.

There you go! If you ever want to get rid of it, just do steps 1 to 3, but then click on the "Restore Defaults" button. Ignore how "defaults" is plural, it doesn't change all of your customized folders/shortcuts/etc. you already have.

Sorry for the late reply! What folder/shortcut are you trying to customize?
