Have you ever felt like your system icons could do with spicing up a little? If so, LiteIcon is a simple app which allows you to change your system icons easily.

To change an icon, simply drag one onto the one you want to change it to on the LiteIcon interface, click the 'Apply Changes' button and restart the Finder to see the modifications. If you're not happy with the results, you can restore an icon by right-clicking it and choosing 'Restore'. You can restore multiple icons in one go by going to 'File -> Restore all icons'. The icons in LiteIcon are divided into the following categories: General, Folders, Devices, Dock and Others. Having to restart Finder every time you want to change one though is a bit annoying, especially if you have other Windows open in Finder. However, since you're likely only to use this application on one-off occasions, it's not big problem.

LiteIcon provides an easy way to change your icons and give them a makeover quickly and easily.
