What does the multi-celled grid on the right represent?

This grid (or working area) represents all of the individual icon resources that can be compiled together to make a single icon.

  • Columns represent icon sizes (16×16, 24×24, 32×32 & 48×48).
  • Rows represent color depths (4-bit, 8-bit & 24-bit).

Every grid square you complete will mean that the icon you save at the end will have those resources built into it. Cells in the grid can be filled automatically using QuickBuild, or added one by one using the green arrow (Add Resource) button to the left of the grid.

NOTE: If you include any 24×24 resource, the icon won’t display properly on Windows 98 and Windows 2000. This column should only be used by people wanting to create icons for display in the Windows Start Menu.
