1,640 Free (for non-commercial use) Icons in a Single Download

Like custom icons?

Though there are lots of places all over the web to grab Free Windows Icons from, in my experience, the majority of them aren't really free, in that they will let you download maybe 10 or 20 and then require a subscription fee if you want to get more, or be able to download more than one Icon at a time.

I recently found a website that gives you 1,640 Icons in one download.

https://www.creativefreedom.co.uk/free-icons/1000-free-windows-icons/

Just click the Blue download free button and you'll get a ZIP file 68.8MB in size.

Inside that zip file, you'll find 1,640 custom icons that are 100% Free for non-commercial use.

Extract the zip file contents to a temporary folder and you'll have the following folders;

  • 16x16 - All Icons in .png format saved to 16 x 16 pixels in size you can easily manipulate and convert to .ico
  • 24x24 - All Icons in .png format saved to 24 x 24 pixels in size you can easily manipulate and convert to .ico
  • 32x32 - All Icons in .png format saved to 32 x 32 pixels in size you can easily manipulate and convert to .ico
  • 48x48 - All Icons in .png format saved to 48 x 48 pixels in size you can easily manipulate and convert to .ico
  • glyph - All Icons in .png format in various sizes - so that you can easily manipulate and convert to .ico for yourself
  • icns - All Icons in .icns format - these are in MAC format for Macintosh users

paint sad face No More Paint?
With the news of MS Paint being killed "deprecated", I just had to express my feelings in the only appropriate way I could... I mean, it's certainly not a great image editor at all, but at least you could count on it being available on any Windows system. Even when I've had much better tools at hand, it was still a frequent go-to for really quick-and-dirty screen grab cropping and annotating.

How do you feel about this? Do you mourn the loss or feel it's long overdue?

LOL. I know, right? Paint 3D lacks a lot of the features that make Paint a quick & dirty photo/screenshot editor. Even worse, the Win 10 Photo Viewer and the built-in editor? No crop there, either. Wut the?
