    why are my icons being rounded? I want them to be square. I have many apps that make an icon using my own pictures, but when saved, they become rounded 1x1 icons. Any ideas? Changing the launcher was not any better

    Which phone do you use? Some default launchers let you set the icon shape.

    Phone is a new Samsung S10e, but I have not found the setting to change icon shapes.

    I'm not currently using a Samsung phoe, but you might want to check the Samsung Themes app. If you can't find the Samsung Themes app in the app list, I think you can open it through the Samsung Galaxy Store app. There might be an option to change the shape.

    OK, thanks. I just tried asking Google, and she said that under settings, there is an option for icon shapes. I tried it and the phone looks like it's changing all my icons to squares (I hope).

**NOTE: Android 8.0 and newer adds a small icon next to your customized icon. It's not possible to remove that due to Android limitations.** Awesome Icons lets you customize your home screen icons with icon packs and your own pictures. It works with most launchers and does not require root. Download icon packs from the Play store and mix icons freely from any of them. You can also use your own pictures from the gallery or the camera to create your own icons. With Awesome Icons, you choose the style of each home screen icon individually. Creating customized icons is easy: find the application and the icon pack you want, and create your new home screen icon with a single tap. You can also customize the label of the application or remove it completely. You can use the app to personalize your icons with any launcher, including the stock Android launcher and the Google Now launcher. Video review by TechnoBuffalo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54U6ErWJAkU Try these: - Draw your own icons on paper and use the camera. - Create icons with empty labels for a minimalistic look. - Use a different style on each home screen page.
