Quick Launch Icons
Probably, only the lazy one has not heard about the RocketDock program. It allows you to get rid of the annoying taskbar and place a beautiful, animated dock on your desktop for quick access to folders and applications. The program supports not only personal replacement of icons, but also many skins for the panel. From the most "colored" to the simplest: no shadows, "glass" effect and in the Flat style, for example. Also in the range there are themes in the style of Metalic or Mac OS. Here you can download these for free.
