I need the maximize icon file of the default elementary theme. I'm working on a custom theme for Vivaldi, so that it looks more integrated, and this is the only one I can't find.

Thank you in advance.

I know what you are looking for is another type of icons but I really don't know where to look. I tried to find them but nothing.

There's a GitHub page where the normal icons are developed (not the kind you want/need). You could ask there and get a better answer than mine


Sorry and good luck

  • Thanks for your answer! Yes, I found that repo too, but I wanted to check here first before opening an issue. The icon doesn't seem to be present in the gtk theme folder either. Are you sure I can open an issue on GitHub if it's just a support question? It's not really a bug nor an icon contribution...

  • I'm not sure but at least you can get a direct input from a developer/maintainer. Yes probably will be off topic but you could get the next step as an answer

    It got labeled as invalid, but Cassidy kindly answered my question. See my answer to this question :)

I opened an issue on GitHub and Cassidy replied pointing me to the actions/symbolic folder of their icons repo: https://github.com/elementary/icons/blob/master/actions/symbolic/window-maximize-symbolic.svg.

The parent directory has the rest of window controls and other symbolic icons for actions.
