When I zip or download a zipped file, Archive Utility doesn't display it's default zip icon anymore. Also when viewing Info and the large Previewer icon.
It now displays this version of a program I seem to have installed (don't know which).

How can I turn it back to Archive Utility's default blue zip icon when I compress or download a zipped file?
I've tried everything from changing the Get Info icon to going to Core Services (where nothing has changed in the icns files or Archive Utility)

Try changing the default app to something else from the list of potential apps

Then click Change All..

Ensure the icon is now the correct one for your new choice, then repeat the process to revert to Archive Utility.

  • Didn't help. No matter what app I set it to and after restoring it to Archive Utility, that large zip image in the preview section stays the same.
