:bulletpurple: Here it is! You guys asked for it and now I'm giving it to you! Here is my first ever icon set made exclusively for the Windows 8/8.1 Start Screen!!

:bulletblue: The set is based off of my Metro UI Icon Set

:bulletorange: THIS SET CURRENTLY INCLUDES 616 512x512 Metro Tiles for today's top applications, internet browsers, Operating Systems/system icons, 1-5 alternative icons for the top websites, AND MORE!

:bulletgreen: To put these tiles on the Start Screen on Windows 8, click here to download OblyTile! OblyTile is necessary for you to change tiles until Windows 8.1 is out! :)

:bulletyellow: Thank you all for being so patient as I get this done, was a bit of work but the result is well-worth it! :D


:bulletgreen: Orphydian has made some GREAT complimentary Metro Uinvert icons that you should check out!…

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 get these, made EXCLUSIVELY for Windows 8:…

:bulletred: RULES FOR USAGE: You may use these icons however you like, BUT if you post them online for others to see, you must provide appropriate credit to me and this set and selling ANYTHING that contains my icons in any way is strictly prohibited UNLESS you are willing to give me a portion of your earnings via Paypal, on ANY site. Period!

Thank you so very much! :)

:bulletorange: For a Business Transaction:

If you're interested in using these icons or interested in having me make something for you for a commercial product or service, you can contact me by sending me a Note here on DeviantART! :)

Like this set? You may enjoy these too! (Made by me)

I like the modern look it has a clean look to it. The clean look also provide a sophisticated look and is easy on the eye. I prefer this Tile set and recommend it ,because it blends in well with the original windows 8 tiles and does not appear distorted. The clean look also improves the usability of windows with the ability to add your favorite apps to a appropriate tile reducing loading time from hiding your hideous icons from the start screen. Overall i would recommend this tile set above any else ,because it just feels right and well done!

I wanted to say Thank you! I recently reformatted my computer lost a lot of icons, that I had gather from the internet through image searches. To have a massive collection of some of the most popular programs out there is amazing. Hope the best for you, and thank you for sharing this openly with us.

Sucks you lost all your stuff in the reformat, I usually keep my more important stuff backed up on OneDrive. Thanks for checking out the set, glad you like it. :) And having it available for everyone is no problem!

I love these icons! The only thing is that the original icons made by Microsoft have a slight gradient. Maybe you could implement that in an update to this pack. But other than that, very nice work!

PS: How long does it take you making one icon?
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks :) and yeah, I realize there is a gradient on the official icons. But I don't think I'll implement that, at least not for quite some time. Currently not working on this set at all.

And the time required for each icon varies depending on design, shape, detail, and other things. Most don't take long, just a few minutes perhaps? 10-45 minutes =P
