This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It is a duplicate, the linked question applies to any system file, including files within apps, and restoring the entire app would solve your problem anyway even though that's not the only solution provided. – grg Sep 16 '17 at 15:24
  • @grgarside But when I was typing in the question ask different didn't showed me that this question already exits and that question has complicated answers unlike this one and even the question is not clear! – Sayan Sep 16 '17 at 15:25

If you already updated to macOS 10.12.6 (Sierra) simply download and re-run the 10.12.6 Combo installer. One of the subsequent installer packages updates Terminal.app (with the missing Terminal.icns) which will replace your "broken" Terminal.app.

  • Reinstalling a combo patch or the full install always is a great option. – bmike Sep 16 '17 at 15:17

To do so would be copyright infringement; however, you could use Pacifist to extract the files from the Sierra install app.

  • This is a great use of your tool - it presents a safe visual for anyone not looking to mount Recovery HD manually to get back parts of the core system without a reinstall. apple.stackexchange.com/a/116612/5472 – bmike Sep 16 '17 at 15:17

You can also opt for grabbing one that looks almost identical imo.


Edit: the comments mention these were extracted from Yosemite, so I guess they are actual apple icons.

  • I have copied and pasted in the default icon but the png image is very blurry and doesn't looks like the original one can you please upload the .icns file and png image on this site : dbr.ee and share the link with me! – Sayan Sep 15 '17 at 6:35
  • This is the current icon for Sierra, you only need the .icns file, here is the link dbr.ee/wPse – Don Escobar Sep 16 '17 at 15:18
  • It says link/page not found! give me the sharable link – Sayan Sep 16 '17 at 15:23
