    So I need help with getting all the Windows 7 Icons.


    So, the only reason why I need help getting all the Windows 7 Icons is because, I kinda want my Windows 10 Pro installation looking the most like Windows 7, i've gotten the Start button, sounds, themes, and the personalization panel. Now all i need is the WIN7 Icons and the CP (Control Panel). My WIN10 WVN is V2004 (OS Build 20161.1000). All help is appreciated.

    You'll never pull it off satisfactorily!

    Windows 10 icons are spread throughout hell's half-acre so badly that even the most sophisticated icon packager won't catch half of them!

    First, I assume you know the build you are on is the latest Development Branch Insider Build (Fast Ring)? Trying to customize or tame an insider build is like trying to nail jello to the wall.

    Current public build is 19041 or 18363.

    Years ago I would use a program that could extract icons from the .exe and .dll files which could be saved in a folder or in a .dll file to use when creating shortcuts and the Change Icon button. It may still be possible if having access to a computer still running Win7 [I still have one and also WinXP and WinVista].

    I do not know of any that will get you where you want to be. Insider builds can and will change at the drop of a hat, and the low stability of them precludes you doing much stable icon work. You may get a lot just the way you like, and BOOM!, the next build just zaps what you done. Wish you luck, though, and if you do come up with a workable solution, please share it.
