Icons make our applications more usable and visually stimulating. Before scouring the internet for free icons or purchasing an icon library, check out the icons that ship with (non-Express versions of) Visual Studio for free.
Since Visual Studio 2005, Visual Studio has shipped with common Windows and Office icons to encourage us to build more consistent looking applications.
Icon formats include bmp, ico, png, and xaml. Also, some animations are included in gif and avi formats. The Visual Studio Icon Library is a zip file in the program files directory.
