On your Mac, copy the picture you want to use to the Clipboard. One way to do this is to open the picture in the Preview app, choose Edit Select All, then choose Edit Copy. Select the file or folder whose icon you want to replace, then choose File Get Info. At the top of the Info window, click the picture of the icon, then choose Edit Paste. Copying an Image: Copy an image from another file. If you like the look of another file icon, navigate.

I am sure I'm overlooking something obvious and that this is a stupid question, but I can't figure out how to do something in OS X SL that is a snap in Windows: How do you create a desktop icon that is a 'shortcut' to a web site URL, so that double-clicking the desktop icon causes the default browser to open to that page? All I can figure out is how to save a page to the desktop as an html file through the file menu. But that creates both the icon and a whole folder of other files and appears to just open a static (historical) document. Basically I am just wanting to make a 'bookmark' to a single site right on my desktop. (It's my Delicious site where I keep all my bookmarks for all browsers on all devices.)
