Change icons for files or folders on Mac

Unlike Windows OS, if you have several pictures in one folder, the folder icon is not changed based on your photographs. So if you want to change the folder icon, you can follow below steps:

  1. Open the picture you want to use with Preview on your Mac. Then in the Menu, you choose Edit -> Copy.

  2. Select the file or folder you want to change, right-click to choose the Menu Get Info.

  3. At the top of the file information, you will find a current icon; Click it.

  4. Paste what you have copied in the Preview.

If you want to change back to the default icon of macOS, open a folder with the default icon at the top of the file information, click the icon as the previous step, then copy it; you will have the default icon in your clipboard. Then follow steps 2 to 4 as earlier, you will change the icon to the default icon.
