SysIcon Alternatives

    SysIcon is described as 'tool which allows you to change most of the Windows Shell Icons. It is not an image editor but applies settings e.g. to the registry' and is an app in the OS & Utilities category. There are six alternatives to SysIcon for Windows and Mac. The best alternative is LiteIcon, which is free. Other great apps like SysIcon are CandyBar (Free), IconPackager (Paid), IconTweaker (Free) and WinIcon Customizer (Free).

      See note on website: "Since we’re unsure about the long-term future of changing system icons, we’re not comfortable charging money for CandyBar, and we’re also not comfortable simply making it disappear, instead we’re going to make the current CandyBar free — but unsupported."
