Standard Icon Sizes for Operating Systems

Using icons to enhance designs can be powerful, especially when those icons are vector icons. Vector icons are resolution independent and offer superior scalability compared to raster icons. This means that vector icons can be scaled up or down without losing clarity, perfect for creating visuals for websites, social media graphics, and even outdoor advertising signage. By utilizing the power of scalable vector icons you can give your designs a professional touch with a consistent look and feel across all mediums.

Operating systems come in all shapes and sizes, as do their icons! Finding the correct size for each icon is no small task, from Windows to Linux, Mac OS to Android. And if that isn’t tricky enough, website graphic designers have much more freedom when it comes down to deciding on an appropriate sizing for page icons.
