Circles III : Gaia

At Windows Guides, we do our very best to bring you the best tips, advice, and freebies. In this guide, we share the second part of 100 of the best free icon packs available online. The posts are broken into two because of the size of the images needed to preview each pack. For those on dial-up, 7.14MB of images may be a little much—hopefully by splitting this post into two parts, you’ll be able to get the most out of these great downloads.

And many of the conveniences offered by modern operating systems are unavailable to Web Applications running in the browser.

Free Desktop Icon Packs

This week, we have a collection of Windows XP, Vista, and 7 style icon packs. You can use these icons for Windows customization, web sites, applications, mobile apps, posters, and more; however, just because the pack is free doesn’t mean there’s no attached license. Please be sure to check the license for each pack you download as each differs. The license should be available from the site you’re led to and often it’s in the download. If you know of any good icon packs to include in this genre, please let me know. Looking for a different genre? Desktop icon pack collections organized by genre.
