    There are a number of different icon packs in the Market which i like or have been using however none seem to contain anywhere near the right amount of icons which i need.
    Now, flame me if you will but i really like the iphoney style icons ie the ones in a square shape which are very colourful.
    Ive downloaded a number off of the market but to date all i have been happy with is tenuis icon pack, matte icons and serenade icons pack.
    These dont contain exactly what i want though and have too much of what i dont want.

    I see alot of people get icons off of there desktop somehow.
    How do i do this??
    I have never plugged my desire into my computer so am a complete newbie to doing things that way.

    I really want some decent icons that can really show what my apps are without text and id like too browse through some online but i dont know where to start :|

    Thanks

    First of all when you connect your phone to your PC it should automatically connect as a disk drive so you can browse the files and folders on your sd card. You can set up a folder called icons (or whatever you want to call it).

    Then search the web to find some icons you like. These are the websites I use but there are loads of others out there:
    Browse Icon Packs - FindIcons.com
    Browse icon sets | Search and download free icons
    PNG Icons & Icon Packs Download | IconsPedia - Free Icons

    Right click on the .png download button for the icon you want and select 'save link as' and navigate to the folder you have just set up. I find that the 128x128 size is best for the Desire where you have a choice of sizes.

    There are loads of tips here on how to change icons http://androidforums.com/desire-tips-tricks/168533-folderorganizer-beginners-guide.html
