Desktop Icon Pack Collections Organized by Genre

Posted by Rich On August - 30 - 2010

As there are so many icon packs on this site now and it can be hard to find the ones you like. To help you dig through icon packs here on Windows Guides, I’ve divided the packs up into 8 genres.

Want to be the first to know when the latest collection is released?
