    Nice collection, but change the image appearing @ main page of howtogeek for this post cause that black & white icons image is not attracting to open this topic

    I second LoverBoy’s comment as I hadn’t opened this topic the first time I looked through the How-To-Geek Daily Article e-mail due to that very reason. Today, I decided to click on the funny black & white icons anyway and was surprised at the contents herein! My first thought (which made it out of my mouth) was….. Whoa! What’s this?? :)

    Happy New Year!!

    I love these icon collections – thanks for sharing them! There are several I’d like to download, however when I click on the ‘download’ button, the screen it takes me to is confusing, and I never seem to actually download the icons.

    I’m pretty sure I’m avoiding the ‘download’ buttons to buy advertised software, and think I’m clicking on the right thing, but then nothing happens, just another screen appears with more software to download. (However on each of these screens the icons I’m trying to get are mentioned.)

    Any advice? I’m sure it’s really easy and I’m just missing something. Thanks!

    @Kathy – Which particular icon packs were you trying to download?

  5. Kathy

    @Asian Angel – From the ones above, Shades of Geometry and Magic Flowers. Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
