I know how to do an increase in memory allocation by altering a particular app through the getInfo... but, I can't find the correct icon for doing this for the OS. I want to increase its memory to 64 MB instead of the 35 it currently uses. Where can I find the correct icon?

ok open your system folder select the finder and duplicate that, then use resedit and open it, twords the bottom ther should be a bloated computer icon with SIZE written under it, double click that, then double click on the -1 and 10 numbers, a window should open, scroll to the bottom and put in your desired size and min size, then jusr replace the old finder with the one you just altered. good luck hope this helps
