#Icons – Download Visual Studio Image Library for free


Today I was asked where to get some Office icons, and I remembered some MSDN link where we can find the complete collection of icons and images for Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft Windows, Office System, and other Microsoft apps.

After search the download link I was shocked by the size difference in the latest version. For example:

  • The version of VS2011 Image Library.zip, 19.4 MB
  • The version of VS2013 Image Library.zip, 285.6 MB
  • The version of VS2015 Image Library.zip, 2.9 GB

After download the version of VS2015 I found: each icon has different sizes and versions: png, svg and XAML!



Xaml versions seems to be created with AiToXaml or some similar tool to export Adobe Illustrator to Xaml.

And, as final comment, the PDF file with the complete list of icons has a size of + 30MBs. There are 4222 icons of various sizes and various formats. An ideal complement to SyncFusion MetroStudio ((and no, don’t have the icon of Hololens)
