Windows Phone 7 Icons.. Before you search the web, check your hard drive

Benjamin Day Consulting, Inc.: The Blog - List of standard icons for Windows Phone 7 (WP7)

"Maybe I’m simply a total failure at The Google(s) and The Bing(s) but I went looking for the list of standard icons for Windows Phone 7 (WP7) and couldn’t find it anywhere.

After a ton of hunting, I found the icons in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.0\Icons. [GD: If you're running x86 Windows your path will slightly different]


I find that funny in that I'd have never thought to look for WP7 icons on my hard drive, that my first step would be to search the web (and my related past posts). I mean icons on our local HD's, who'd have thought... LOL.


What's in the vector folder?


... an Adobe Illustrator file which imports just fine into Expression Design...
