2. go to Nova settings
3. click on "look & feel"
4. First item is "icon theme" select that and select the one you just downloaded.
5. If you don't like that one, go to step 1 and repeat

I'm not trying to tell you what to do, just trying to make it simple.

then when you are past your exam, you can experiment with some of the quirkier ones, select each individual app to change the icon, etc

I appreciate the help. Just downloaded pixel icon pack. Wasn't expecting a 50mb download. I found that disabling "normalize icon size" helped in making the icons not laughably tiny. Pixel icon pack puts all of my non-system icons that aren't circular into circles with a white background. Gonna have to do some digging and playing around with things.

My phone was like that. Glad to hear I'm not the only person who thought it was unbearable. I forget how I fixed but looks like you're getting help.

Moonshine icon pack seems to do what I wanted out of the box. No background behind any icons. Thanks, all.

nova settings -> desktop -> "icon layout" to change icon size. Apparently I have mine set to the max 150%, so I guess I agree with you.

Also check your grid size (nova settings -> desktop -> desktop grid) make sure it's the number of rows and columns you want
