Desktop Fun: Google Themed Icon Packs

By Akemi Iwaya on January 4th, 2011

Are you an avid user of Google’s online services, but the icons for your desktop and app launcher shortcuts leave something to be desired? Now you can make those shortcuts shine with style using our Google Themed Icon Packs collection.

Note: To customize the icon setup on your Windows 7 & Vista systems see our article here. Using Windows XP? We have you covered here.

Sneak Preview

For this week’s sneak preview we set up a Google Chrome themed desktop using the Simply Google Icon Collection shown below.

Note: Original full-size wallpaper can be found here.

We used Chromium to create a set of app shortcuts for various Google services on our desktop. Anyone who has done the same knows that the original icons do not look very good, so these icon packs can make those shortcuts look spectacular.

Once the new icons were arranged for our desktop app shortcuts, we then pinned them to our Taskbar. Those are definitely looking nice!
