One of the great features of the Macintosh system involves how easily you can change its icons.
A simple cut and paste can change an icon into anything your mind can create in an image editor.
The problem with customizing your icons has always been having to use a resource editor to hack into the system file so that all of your folders sport your new design.
Working with resource editors is not for the faint of heart. Major damage can be caused by changing resource fork information, because actual system information is being changed.
This slick application allows you to change the way standard icons appear throughout your entire computer. Just create a new icon, and then drag it into the iControl window next to the standard system icon you want to change.
Almost instantly, all the icons on your hard drive change into the new icons!
If you don't have the time or talent to create your own look, don't worry. Icon developers have hopped on the iControl bandwagon by creating iPacks. These sets of icons can be loaded into iControl to change all the standard icons on your computer.
Everything from your trash can and hard disk to your network servers instantly change after loading an iPack.
What started out as an application to dress up the Mac's trash can icon has turned into one of the easiest ways to customize your Mac!
Its easy operation and the fact that icon developers are creating iPacks makes this shareware application a must have.
iControl requires a PPC Macintosh computer with OS 8.5 or better.
