No matter what programming language you program in Visual Studio, you will be familiar with the Intellisense icons that Visual Studio uses for the different types of entities in your code. The icons used by Intellisense are also called Babel Icons and are available in a Visual Studio installation, whether to pique your curiosity or for use in your own programs.

These icons are stored in the Visual Studio Image Library. This is a file named VS2010ImageLibrary.zip that can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\VS2010ImageLibrary\1033\. Unzip this file and navigate to the directory VS2010ImageLibrary\Objects\bmp_format\Office and VS. The Intellisense icons are the ones named **VSObject_*.bmp**. I found a staggering 156 different Intellisense icons on my Visual Studio 2010 installation! 😊
