With a simple highlight and import,
Preview can display exactly the displayed icon. Let’s see how to do it.
Let’s say that we want to take the icon of
Preview. First, you should open your
Finder up to where
Preview is located. After that, highlight it by either click on it or move the cursor to it. Now, you’ve done the first step.
Copy into Clipboard
Hit down Command-C (make sure that the item is in highlight) and the icon will be successfully stored in the clipboard. This all for the second step.
Open with Preview
After those several simple steps before, it’s time now to open your
Preview. On the menu bar, click
File ▸ New from Clipboard.
For the result, this is what you’ll get.
