Before the advent of mobile devices a desktop icon was either a Windows application icon or a Mac application icon, both being used as graphical short-cuts to launch a software application or utility.

Nowadays we have a plethora of mobile devices, tablets and other niche devices to consider and although any ‘computer’ home screen is generally termed the ‘desktop’, I am not sure how relevant the term is any more, even if you do still use a desktop-based computer.

The main components of the desktop are the icons on the desktop and the panel at the bottom of the screen. An Example KDE Desktop. Desktop icons represent files, directories, applications, functions, and removable media, like CDs or DVDs. The desktop has the following icons. Another wildly vague question on Quora. YOU MUST SPECIFY. What operating system are you focused on here. Windows and Apples o/s icons are very different, and Android is different again. When a client asks for a desktop icon, 99% of the time this is what they are after. To be Windows 7 or 8 compliant this means at least 256, 48, 32 & 16 pixel versions in 32bit and 8bit colour depths, all rendered into a single ICO file.

For me, the term is fairly synonymous with a Windows application icon. When a client asks for a desktop icon, 99% of the time this is what they are after. To be Windows 7 or 8 compliant this means at least 256, 48, 32 & 16 pixel versions in 32bit and 8bit colour depths, all rendered into a single ICO file.

Below are examples of some of the desktop icons we have created over the years. Almost all of these have been for Windows platforms, although a few were also used as the basis for web icons and mobile app variants as well. Putting this little list together makes me realise how diverse our customer base has been over the years; it always keeps things interesting.

A big smug grin for whoever guesses the oldest one here. Now be kind, some of these icon designs are really quite old!

Communications Icon

A computer icon is a pictogram. It is placed on a computer system to help the user navigate the screen more easily. What are the computer icons and their functions? Asked by Wiki User. The icons were applied for Xerox Alto, a machine which was extremely expensive so didn’t go to the wide market. Yet, it was the starting chapter of a long story: Xerox Star was released in 1981 and it’s mentioned as the first consumer computer using icons as a part of the interface.
