all kde icons are encoded in the PNG format - a common image standard.

It is a matter of copying the icon files over to a partition (FAT or NTFS) so that windows can read it, and opening the files with an applications such as Macromedia Fireworks, or any other respectable application. I am not sure (but likely) if windows has native png support for images.

The kde icons are located at either:




where KDE_SYSTEM is your prefix - which you can find with kde-config --prefix
