I've got a brand new mac with Yosemite 10.10.2 and I dislike the blue color of the folders

I'm looking for a proper way to change ALL folders's color

I've seen that http://yukiyamashina.github.io/blog/2014/10/19/how-to-change-the-color-of-default-folder-icons-in-OS-X-Yosemite/

But I can't find the folder CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

Is this because I've got Yosemite 10.10.2 ?

  • I used LiteIcon: freemacsoft.net/liteicon to replace Yosemite default folder with Mavericks default folder. That's MUCH less garish. Feb 10 '15 at 14:12
  • I just checked it on a newly set up machine and the folder is there. Are you sure you're looking for that folder under /System/Library and not /Library or ~/Library?

  • Litelcon unfortunally doesn't work under 10.10.2... But if you think the yukiyamashina is perillous, I shall wait

  • LiteIcon seems to work fine for me Mar 12 '17 at 10:51

Try candy Bar, I use it to change my icons and it works all the time. It's no longer supported by it's developers but the current version still works


  • I've tried to download CandyBar but it's not supported by my Yosemite 10.10.2 "Unqualified system"
