A useful icon for triggering the control panel on windows or the the system preferences on Linux - you can of course use it for anything you wish.

In windows the target would be the command CONTROL.EXE

This is another one of a bunch of steampunk icons that I have created that will leave your Windows or Mac desktop looking absolutely spiffing. There is a whole set of the little thingies and I must say they do look very steampunk indeed! They really are a suitable replacement for the boring old default icons that come with Rocketdock/ObjectDock &c.

This icon and the others like it will spruce up your desktop and give it a bit of Victorian class. Compatible with MobyDock, ObjectDock, RK Launcher, and your default Windows icons.

You can get all the icons on one bundle here: http://rocketdock.com/user/107284/addons/popular

In this bundle, each icon image is combined within a single ico file so that you have the icons sized at 16, 32, 48 or 128 bytes all in one.

Most of these icons are entirely my own work, and a very few are heavily modified images incorporating some bits from the British library icon set from Samantha Wright. This one is the the British library light bulb icon simply modified with an inner and outer glow and the addition of two of my widget icon images. I do like Samantha's icons, I just find some need some sprucing up to make them more applicable to the function I have in mind for them.

If you want any new ones then just ask! I am always open to new (or old) ideas - please leave a comment, these icons are quite hard to do and a nice comment makes my day.

Rocketdock Installation: In the rocketdock folder there is a subfolder called icons. Move these icons into that folder or create a subfolder called steampunk icons and copy them in there. Then you simply change each of your individual icon images to any one of these. Easy enough.

The only condition for downloading and using is that you leave feedback. Please leave a message and rate the icons as it is the only payment I get for creating this small desktop addition :D

If you feel so disposed you could donate a point or two to my deviantart pool? http://yereverluvinuncleber.deviantart.com/#donate

Thanks! Do enjoy the icon.

I downloaded this earlier but didn't comment on it, for which I am most humbly sorry.
It's my control panel replacement, obviously.
And love your work and thank you for your efforts.
