    @LoverBoy – I converted the icons shown for the example desktop above from .png format to .ico format using IcoFx. ^__^ Here is a zip file containing all five converted icons shown above (in case you decided that you liked the other four later as well):

    Update : Sorry to say but that icons not open up in windows 7 default picture viewer any info ??

  9. Asian Angel

    @LoverBoy – To use those icons you will not need to open them in a regular photo/image app (unless you want to modify them). If you want to modify them use these links for IcoFx. ^__^

    If you just want to use them as they are, then go to the article linked to right beneath the intro paragraph at the top of this article. That will get you nicely on your way to a new desktop look. ^__^

    Or, if you don’t want to use IcoFX, use this instead:

    Free web based app. I used it for creating these Mac PNG icons fo ICO files, so i can use them in windows ;)

  11. Hatryst

    Oh, i had some typos in the last post !
    I used this web app to convert these “.png” icons that Angel posted, to “.ico” format, so that they can be recognized as icons by Windows 7.
