Zipped Icons by XSV Zipped Icons by XSV
I made these based on the Apple Mac OS X compressed archive style. Again, file types are colour schemed in my mind :)

I deliberately left the icons without text labels to make them more versatile to the user's choice of compressed format.

In my mind they are:

Amber: ZIP/Generic
Red: RAR
Cyan: ACE
Lime: PAK
White: 7Zip

Use them as you wish :)

P.S. I also included the PNG formats for Dock users.

i am unsure of how to use these icons, and i even followed the instructions you gave a fellow deviant, but i cannot find the 'Folder Options'. :< I feel kinda stupid for not being able to find it.

They're there for personal use. If you want to put them into an application then you'll need to let me know and give proper credit where it's due ;) As long as they're not used for commercial purposes.

Saving my poor brain! The Windows icon for a zip file just looks like a messy folder, en masse. These are going to help a LOT. Thank you!

Hehe Tell me about it! I never understood why default icons often look that poorly designed.

Glad you like these icons :) Thanks!

Yes, Vista is up to 256x256. All my newer icons are going by the standard.

I'm considering making my new standard 512x512 as per MacOS X Leopard.

No worries man :)

You don't actually "install" them per se. You can put them anywhere you like on your drive, then you can go and modify the filetype you like (i.e. .zip) under Folder Options, File Types. Click on Advanced, then Change Icon, and choose the icon you like.

May I ask you how you would use them?

XSV Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2006  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Well I personally use them to replace the default archive icons. I just set them up through the Tools|Folder Options|File Types. Just choose the archive type i.e. zip, and change the icon.
