Refresh File Type Icons on OSX

Have you ever changed a file type association on Mac and the icon still annoyingly shows the icon for the old application instead of the new one? Run the following commands to refresh the icon cache, which should pick up the new icon.

sudo rm -rf /Library/Caches/com.apple.iconservices.store
sudo killall Finder
