Please note that this page only relates to Steem running under Windows, XSteem's icons
cannot be customised (yet).
Since v2.5 Steem's icons can be customised. You can do this yourself by simply going to
Options->Icons and clicking on the icon you want to change, but this is a bit slow. Instead
you can download a set of icons (called an icon scheme) made by other Steem users. Below are
the currently available icon schemes.
Don't like using nice icons? With this scheme you can make Steem look like it
did back in the ugly old days!

It is easy to create a scheme of your own, just download the default scheme and replace the
icons with your new ones. The icons have to be in standard Windows format (max 256 colours), Steem
does not support the new Windows XP icons. Now open the "default.stico" file, read the
instructions and alter it to suit your new scheme. Now rename the stico file and the folder
to the name you have chosen for your scheme and you're done. Compress your new scheme into
an archive, send it to us, and then we'll add it to this page when we can.
