Acorn Computers square ICO(s) for common usage on Windows

Post by Square Mezzmer » Wed Mar 14, 2018 8:30 pm

Hi all.

As a creative designer (graphics, media) I've developed myself some nice icons for Windows PC usage. One icon version black Acorn text, one has white as an alternative. You can find them easily them by placing in System32 folder of Windows.

C:\Windows\System32\

You can change a folder or shortcut's icon by looking at a file's

Properties > Customise | Shortcut tab.

They size legitimately down to 32x32. They also scale up every Windows icon size to 512x512.

I'd like to upload a .zip pack somewhere. I called it "Acorn-icons (Square) 2018". Would you guys be happy to put it on a server some place safe?

All adapted by Acorn_computers_logo_rendered_with_text.SVG found with Google Image Search.

Here is a JPG preview of how they look on an average desktop:

More ideas coming. Have fun!

Apologies. Used the attachments feature URL which was sadly only cached in my browser.

I didn't want to upload anywhere else but I've done so.

Yes. I'm aware of that. But I needed an attachments link for the RISC OS OPEN forum.

I got confuddled with windows doing both forums at the same time, posting. It got cached in my broswer so I used the link quite stupidly. :!:

Just now: I think the attachment features on this board are most excellent.

Any comments on the smart icons? I'm sure most advanced users knew about icons in Windows. I find it rather cool customising my GUI.
