    Windows 8 Icon Request


    Hi,

    I'm in need for the Windows 8's System/OS drive icon to complete a transformation kit I'm working on.

    I couldn't find this icon anywhere, but found few ones on the internet but they're not the original one and not properly done.

    Anyway, this should be fairly easy to anyone who's running Windows 8.

    This is the icon I need:




    We need a resource editor for this, you can use any resource editor of your choice, but I'm using Resource Hacker which can be downloaded from Here (730KB)


    Steps:

    1. Go to: C:\Windows\System32 and copy imageres.dllfile to your Desktop (to be safe).


    2
    . Open the file you just copied in the Resource Editor.





    3. The icon I need is located under Icon Group > 36 > 1033





    4. Right click and Save Icon Grouplike 'anything.ico'



    5
    . Upload it and post the link.




    That's all.

    I'll be very grateful if you do this for me, thanks in advance.

    Find attached all the icons (icon resource files) in the imageres.dll file.
    They are in 4 zip files.
    I used Microangelo to copy them.

    Hello TGW, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like the free program IconViewer, when installed, will add an "Icons" tab to files like below that contain icon libraries that will let you easily save the how you like.

    I've uploaded a ZIP file below that contains a 256x256 .ico and .png of that icon for you.

    W8_Drive.zip

    Hope this helps,

    Although I just wanted the system drive icon, but I found what you posted useful as there was several new icons that I didn't know they got updated with Windows 8.

    Thanks a lot for your help, appreciated.

    You got me right, that's exactly what I wanted

    Thanks a bunch for your help, seems you have an active and devoted community around here, I congratulate you.

    I'll give IconViewer a shot, seems a nice program and will be of some help.


    Thanks again for both of you.

    Kind regards
