    This guide shows you how to change plank themes in Elementary OS.
    Works also in eOS 5.1

    1. Download a bunch of themes for plank: https://www.gnome-look.org/browse/cat/273/order/latest/

    2. Extract the package to /.local/share/plank/themes

    3. Open the terminal and type:
    Code (Text):
    plank --preferences
    4. Now pick a theme for your plank - simple as that.


    Enjoy ^_^

    Really useful guide AI

    Also for individual icons to save time there is a menu editor tool called Alacarte. You can use this to quickly select a new icon for any menu entry and then just add to Plank from there.

    Search Alacarte is in AppCentre
