There are a number of ways to customise the appearance of your Mac desktop, but the little works of art that adorn the desktop and dock - the icons you use every day - are prime targets. Certain icons are incredibly easy to change, but this is not a case for all of them.

CandyBar makes it possible to change all manner of icons, including seemingly untouchable system icons. With Pixadex built in, there is also great scope for managing the icons you collect over time.

The iContainers used to store icons can be previewed in Finder and you can quickly and easily browse through existing icons collections as well as creating your own. Smart collections can be used to creation dynamic collections that contain icons that match your preferences.

As well as icon, CandyBar can also be used to customise the Dock using unique skins, and there are various online repositories that can be used to download readymade sets.

Verdict

Mac icons are generally quite beautiful from the offset but if you fancy the idea of using your own creations CandyBar is the tool for you.
