In Win 7 tango fit's well. I don't know how it will fit in Win 10.
I can't change the breeze icon geometry, but as everything is svg,
color changing wouldn't be a problem to fit windows better.

I used tango icons for the installer, cause the installer is for windows
and tango is the default icon set, so the default design language for
windows.

I can also make a proposal for another design language (breeze, galaxy,
sifr, ...)
but I wouldn't prefer to have an installer icon that fit's any LO design
language.
So say what you want and I will have a look if I can make it happen.

cheers
Andreas K

Re: [libreoffice-design] Minutes of the Design Hangout: 2017-Jan-12

Andreas Kainz is the maintainer of Breeze icons. He did not only
submit the LibreOffice icons in Breeze style but also most of the
icons for KDE software. Colors are reserved for the app level in
Breeze, functions are basically monochrome. I challenged him two years
ago with the idea of a colorized Breeze set- and will not stop to poke
him. The colors would need to be defined according the functional
scope, e.g. style stuff in blue, device things in green etc. Another
issue with the set reported by users is that line strokes are very
thin. And we want to have the set in different sizes with a level of
detail depending on it. Hell of work, altogether.
