Mar 26, 2013 I got kind of bored with my SSD drives having the default hard drive icons, and I was having trouble finding a nice set of custom SSD icons by brand name, so I created a simple set of 8 SSD icons for OSX. It's nice to show your fast drives from those slow old-school spinners. Hopefully others might find these useful as well.

Apple apparently thinks that you’d prefer not to see the icons for your Mac’s built-in hard drive, solid-state drive, or those of any external drives on the desktop of macOS. However, I want those icons on my desktop. If you’re like me, here’s how to make them show up.

Click on the desktop so the Finder is “active.”

Custom

Select Preferences under the Finder menu (it’s at the top left

You’ll see a list of items on your desktop. Check the ones (hard disks, external disks; CDs, DVDS, and iPods; connected services) you want to be visible.

Voila. Icons for those items now appear on your Mac’s screen.

Also, in the past, you could customize your Mac’s drive icons if you wanted. However, that ability seems to have changed with macOS Mojave. If anyone knows how to do this, please post in the comments!

[Update:Check out the new OWC icons here!]

Recently, OWC Chris S. demonstrated how to create custom Mac icons for use with folders and apps among other things. However, if you’re looking for pre-made icons from OWC, we have you covered.

OWC ships all of its drives with a custom drive icon to help differentiate it from your other FireWire and USB devices. But when you reformat your drive, you’ll lose the icon along with it and you’ll be left only with the generic orange FireWire or USB icon for your drive.

If you have reformatted your drive and would like access to the drive icon (or some of the other custom icons we’ve created), simply head to our Custom Hard Drive Icons page to download them now.
