Q. "How do I install these icons?"
A. These are JUST IMAGES so you can use these any way you want. If you want to use them for system icons, then my .ICO's are needed and you need to use StarDock IconPackager or IconTweaker.

If you want to use them for Windows 8 Start Screen, my .PNG's are needed and you need to get OblyTile  Or you can use my Modern Tile icon set, made EXCLUSIVELY for Windows 8! (see image below!)




Thank you so very much! :)

This icon set is personally my favorite metro icon set out there. Everything about this is amazing.
Let's start with the vision, as in what it looks like. The icons look amazing, anywhere you put them. The color selections are very wise. Although, I kind of think that there is a bit too many light blue colored icons. The square shape of the icons make them look great when they are together. These icons are also a perfect fit with Windows 8.
Well, about originality. These icons are not exactly a new idea. They are made for the well-known Metro UI that came with Windows 8. Still, this icon sets is a very popular one, and many of these icons have never been seen before.
I don't know about what technique was used, but whatever technique was used, it seems that you knew what you were doing, as it turned out great. If I look closely at the icons, none of them look stretched. The white icons are perfectly centered on their tile.
Impact? Well, I'm pretty sure that icons aren't made to "evoke strong emotions", which is what impact is for. I'm going to talk about a different impact. These icons have become very popular. Many, many, websites use them (some without giving credit :o). I also think that these icons look amazing with Rocketdock, and they're the only reason I downloaded Rocketdock.
Overall, I think you did a great, splendid, job on these icons. If there weren't categories, I would have given you a 5 star overall! Keep creating icons!

Keep trying, perhaps a different browser or refresh the page or something. Because it should work :)

Extraordinary contribution, thanks friend. 
I would like to know if you can perform well for programs that put in the end, they are two programs where your icons will use and I wonder: RocketDock and Star Menu reviever. 

I hope you can support me with my order. 
Thank you for your generous contribution.

Great work !! This is the best icon pack I have ever seen!

Now that I have manually changed some icons on my desktop, may I ask HOW can I install the icons using StarDock IconPackager?

 I don't know why the font is like this now.. anyways how can I set ALL the icons automatically to their own applications on my windows.

BTW  I'm on windows 7. I tried googling but didn't find a good answer! :D please help
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks, glad you like the set! :)

And try going to Google or YouTube to search how to use IconPackager. It's not a super hard process and you get nice results!

And I don't think there's a way anywhere that can automatically change app icons, especially 3rd party. But if you want to change them, probably will have to do it manually. You can't exactly change the OFFICIAL app icons as you don't have access to it.

But if you want to get custom icons for any program, find the location on your HDD where the app you want to change is (most commonly in C:\Program Files or \Windows somewhere). Once you have found the icon you wanna change, make a shortcut to the app anywhere you want, I recommend a folder on your Desktop to keep them all organized and in one spot. Copy the .exe and paste it as a shortcut where you want. Then right click the shortcut and go to properties then look down where it says "Change icon" and you can now change them and copy them and move them to where you want. :) Hope this helped.
