Windows 7: Network Icon


04 Aug 2009   #1

Network Icon

There is a nice range of icons for windows 7, but there were a few that I really liked in windows vista ultimate that I don't seem to be able to find.

One of which that I can remember is the network icon, in vista you could right click, change icon... and I remember being able to select an network icon that was like two monitors stacked on top of each other creating 4 montiors total, and at the bottom was just like any other vista-windows 7 network icon, a connector tube.

I am unable to find this icon to change the desktop icon for "network" in windows 7, does anyone know the icon I am talking about, and any way to download or obtain it in some other way to use?

Thanks.

Just to clarify; it's this icon you're looking for?



If so, it IS located in said .dll:



If it's not that one, theres only one other I know:


This one is located in /system32/imageres.dll

You can find that icon in the networkexplorer.dll.

Cool. Can you make me a nice glass orb with that one? I have some more USMC videos I want to post. Just kidding...

It is only reasonable that Mr. Grim would know where that icon was.

That's true but that one is only 48x48, where as the one I mentioned is 256x256.

This is it's largest scalable size.
