Download New Icons from Windows 10 Build 21343
Here you can download new icons from Windows 10 Build 21343 and apply them in older Windows versions. A few days ago Microsoft surprised users with the new icons in the Insider Preview build 21343.
Microsoft will update classic Windows icons in version 21H2, that is coming in the second half of the 2021. Many built-in Store apps have already got new colorful icons, and now it is time for File Explorer and the shell.
Most of its icons now have a new look. This includes custom folders, discs, and some buttons. Some icons come in different styles to blend well with the dark theme. There is also a new trash icon.
Most new icons can be found in Shell32.dll and Imageres.dll files. We have extracted the icons from those files to ICO files, so you can now apply the icons in previous Windows 10 version, or even in an older release like Windows 8 or Windows 7.
Download New Icons from Windows 10 Build 21343
- Click on this link: Download Icons in ZIP file.
- Unblock the downloaded file.
- Double-click on the file to open in File Explorer.
- Copy both Shell32 and Imageres files out of the ZIP folder (Ctrl+C).
- Paste them to some other location (Ctrl+V). The icons will take 20Mb on your drive.
Now you can use the icons for desktop shortcuts and customizations. The icons are really nice.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 feature update, scheduled for the second half of this year, should bring some big visual changes to the OS, and it’s codenamed Sun Valley.
While Microsoft hasn’t explicitly said this on its blog, you can assume that not all of them will be final. For example, Microsoft brought back the trash can icon when Windows 10 was in preview and had to change it again due to noise from testers. All of this will be based on users’ feedback.

Download icons from Windows 10 build 10125
There are new icons in the latest Windows 10 build 10125. Microsoft is listening to feedback and has replaced lots of icons . Many users did not like the bright yellow folders which have a strange shape and no gradients. These new icons have a more traditional look compared to the previous icon set.
These icons are extracted from actual Windows 10 system files. If you are interested in having them in ICO format, you can download them here:
There are 250 new icons in the archive.
That’s it. Do you like these new icons?

Не хватает некоторых значимых иконок, таких как корзина, например.
It lacks some important icons, such as recycle bin, for example.
Oh really. Thankfully we have it separately here 🙂
I will add.
Try now. Should include the full icon set.
Microsoft doing an amazing job on these icons. They look classic yet have a modern twist. Love it!
Hmm, my favirote icons are from Windows XP anyway.
You can’t expect Microsoft to keep the same style of icons from 13 years ago! You should be glad they look similar and not some other random style
I do not expect that from them.
I just said that I like those icons more than any other default Windows icons.
There’s a icon set of flat Windows XP icons, maybe you’d like those.

I like them! They are the best out of all the builds. I am going to add these to my Windows 8 machines.
Very amazing! Modern more better more a lot than the metro one!
Hmm, ok. Everyone has his own unique taste
It occurs to me that I don’t know how to extract icons from an OS build and use them in another. I suspect I’m not alone, so If that is something you could explain to us at some point, it might be fun to play around with some of the Longhorn ones that I vaguely remember liking or maybe a personal favorite from a Win 10 build. To be honest, I rather like some of the 10122 icons! 🙂
Thank you so much for this! Latest Windows 10 update (1809) seems to have removed the game/chess icon from default imageres.dll .. urgh.
I have downloaded the icons, where should I save them ? so that they can be used to change folder images.
I tried, system32.dll , but I couldn’t open it? Will appreciate your support – thanks
