Icon - Definition

An Icon is a small image displayed on the screen to represent a file, folder, application, device or object on a computer operating system that can be manipulated by the user. Modern computers can handle bitmapped graphics on the display terminal, so the icons are widely used to assist users. A computer icon usually ranges from 16 by 16 pixels up to 128 by 128 pixels. Larger icons are used to assist the visually impaired. The icon can represent anything that a user wants it to and you can see them being displayed on the desktop, toolbars and in the menus of computer application software such as Internet Explorer.
