How to install the ‘Flat Shaded Icon Set’ on your Windows 10 PC

My preferred method of installing new file type icons on Windows 10 is to use the free app Default Programs Editor. This excellent app allows you to change icons, customise your right click context menu, change file associations and lots more.

To download a copy of the windows file icons that can be easily installed on your PC, just click the button below:

Make sure to extract the ZIP file somewhere handy, as your computer will be looking for this location when you change your icons.

PNG or ICO file icons?

The ZIP file contains the icons in both .PNG format and .ICO format. It is best to use ICO for your desktop icons, as each file contains the icon in multiple sizes, which will each get used depending on the scaling of your desktop or Windows Explorer window.

What about other file type icons?

If you want to create your own new icons in this style, I have included the .afdesign file. This is editable in the excellent Affinity Designer, which I use for all vector design work.
