From the MagicWB FAQ, on the MagicWB home page.

Yes. When you think you can stand the old and dull Commodore look on your workbench you can just uninstall MagicWB by re-installing the Commodore system disks. This will not delete any personal settings, it will just replace your icons and default system files. Additionally you should delete the file 'MagicWB' in your 'ENVARC:' directory and remove the 'MagicWB-Demon' line from your startup-sequence and user-startup. This is it.

If the "old" Commodore Workbench looks "dull"... can anyone tell me how I can change the way Mac OS 10.5 looks?!? With each and every update, not only does my Mac become slower and slower, it looks more like a {bleep}s Windoze XP desktop!!

Seriously... Apple's best looking desktop was around 10.2-10.4. What we're using today looks like rubbish.

Amiga OS 3.9+, with maybe some MUI help looks far more modern to these eyes.

I found it in the FAQ, right after my post. Did the instructions from the FAQ, now i have a big mess... My workbench is trashed... Wish I never installed it... Now my icons are crazy, most are now stock but some are from MagicWB. No idea why...

The FAQ is all wrong. It is *not* possible to uninstall MagicWB. MagicWB replaced the icons and it is only possible to replace them again.

A new installation of WB 3.1 only replaces those icons which are contained in WB 3.1. Other icons remain untouched. In addition a new installation of WB does not only replace some icons, it also downgrades all OS files which might have been updated after the installation. So installing WB on top of the existing system is not a good idea.

You should rather go and replace each unwanted icon manually, for example with IconEdit or with a utility like CopyIcon.

Bye,
Thomas
