Create custom icons on your Mac

Apple announced when we’d see the new iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 on Wednesday. The tech giant said their new devices could be pre-ordered beginning Friday and they’d officially be released on September 16.

Along with the new phone and watch, Apple is releasing new operating systems for all its devices. Those operating systems will be available to download later this month as well. We’ve been testing the beta version of MacOS and found a cool feature that helps you customize your desktop.

With MacOS Sierra, you’ll be able to change folder icons from the boring blue folder to an icon of your choosing.

Here's how:

  1. Simply find an image you want to use and copy it.
  2. Select the folder you want to customize, then right click and select: “Get Info.”
  3. On the window that opens up, click the folder symbol in the upper left corner.
  4. On the Finder taskbar, Click Edit >> Paste to change the folder icon to the copied image.

Voila! You now have a folder with a custom icon.

Not on a Mac? Don’t worry, you can do the same thing with Windows 10. Click here to see how!
