" . . . in terminal CD to the folder . . . "
Thanks for the quick response!
How is this done? When I opened Terminal, I got my name and a little grey "curser" box to type into.
So . . . I made a DUPLICATE of a random Documents folder and dragged it into the little grey box - just in case that was the wrong thing to do, I didn't want to mess up or lose the original folder in the process. And, Bingo! The humungous list of folders that I had redecorated appeared. My, I was a busy boy. Seriously, several hundred.
Entered the last command you gave, hit return, and "Voila!" All folder images changed back to Apple blue in less than 10 seconds. Couldn't have been easier.
(Once you know how, that is). Thanks. Didn't have to relaunch Finder, but I did anyway.FYI
: The Applications appear unscathed in any way. Whew. Some of my custom folders had Aliases made from them with the custom image. Those Aliases retained the custom image even though the original folder returned to blue - which is fine. I can always delete an Alias and make another one from the new (old) blue folder. The colour labels/tags also remained intact.
P.S. And, yes, I did do a Time Machine backup
before I touched Terminal.Just another thought: Say, for example, I found a single ICNS folder image I liked and wanted to change all the Apple blue folders to that image at one time. Is that possible? As simple as what I just did?
