Considering that people started using computers at the end of the 20th century, old dream books don’t recognize the terms similar to a computer icon. In the following text, you can read about the meaning of dreams with this motif, based on the opinions of contemporary dream theorists. Interpretations also depend on the context in which a dream occurs and details that follow it.

To dream of computer icons
If you see computer icons in a dream, it means that you will finish one job easier than you thought. You probably got assigned to something that you are not the best at, but you will learn everything you need quickly and finish the task without problems. If you had just a little bit more faith in yourself, these situations would happen more often.

To change the icons on a computer
If you are dreaming of changing the design of the icons on your computer, it means that your creativity is coming through. You are an extremely creative and innovative person, but you don’t use your talents enough. Your job probably doesn’t require these traits, so you should use them by doing a hobby. You could earn good money with it in the future.

To dream of others changing icons
When you are dreaming of other people changing the appearance of the icons on your computer, it means that you will have a conflict with people who don’t share the same opinions as you. Your ideas may not provoke positive reactions from people you work with. You will try to show them that they are wrong, but you will fail. You need to be patient because your time is coming.

To delete icons from your computer
A dream in which you are deleting icons from your computer symbolizes your need for a change. You are overwhelmed with work, obligations, or even people that surround you lately. Their stories are boring and tiring to you, and you can’t wait to come home so that you don’t have to listen to other people’s problems. You should maybe go on a trip or a short field trip to charge your batteries. You can’t let depression sneak up on you. There must be one circle of friends in your surroundings that suits you at the moment.

To dream of others deleting icons
If you are dreaming of someone else deleting icons from your computer, it means that you are frustrated with the fact that other people meddle in your life. There is probably someone who is trying to be involved in every segment of your life out of best intentions. That person is probably older. They are not respecting your boundaries in their desire to help you. If you are married, it is possible that your partner’s family is trying to impose their lifestyle on you, which leads to many conflicts with your partner. Try talking about it calmly and remember that they are your loved one’s parents, which is why they have a completely different perspective of the problem that you are facing.

To not be able to open a computer icon
When you are dreaming of not being able to open an icon and run a program, it means that you will have to postpone a trip or something else that you have been planning and looking forward to for a long time. You may hear bad news from abroad.

To draw or make computer icons
A dream in which you are drawing computer icons on your computer is a sign that you shouldn’t try changing your loved one just so that you could adjust them to your needs. You have met and fallen in love with them the way they are, so why would you have the need to change them. If you can’t accept their flaws, don’t be with them.

To arrange computer icons
If you are dreaming of organizing icons on your computer, that means that you should dedicate more time to the things you enjoy doing and people that make you happy. You have been stressed out because of work and obligations lately, so you don’t have time to do the things you love. If you organize your time a little bit better, you will manage to solve that problem.

To dream of others arranging icons
If someone else is organizing icons on your computer in a dream, it means that you should accept a good-hearted piece of advice that you have recently gotten from someone who has a lot more work and life experience than you. It is good to believe in yourself, but it is also important to listen to other people’s opinions before you make an important decision.

To search for an icon and not being able to find it
This dream is a warning that you can’t see the bigger picture when it comes to a problem you have because of something small. You are stuck on one segment of that complex problem, and you are wasting your time on it instead of solving the things you can solve. You need a better perspective and a fresh pair of eyes. Ask for advice from someone you trust.

To dream of icons disappearing from your desktop
If you see the icons on your computer disappearing, it means that you will suffer a loss because of laziness or recklessness. You will probably sign a contract before you read every point, and you will regret that decision later on. Take this as an important lesson for the future and don’t fall for the tempting offers because there is always something in the background that doesn’t work to your advantage.

To dream of icons neatly organized on your computer
When you see neatly organized icons on your desktop, it means that you are a meticulous person and that you need to have everything organized properly. Sloppiness and irresponsibility at work make you go mad, so you often finish other people’s tasks as well. You know that you are not doing yourself a favor, but your perfectionism doesn’t let you relax. Considering that these traits are congenital, you will have a hard time giving them up.

To dream of icons scattered around
If you see many icons scattered around on your desktop, it means that you are resourceful and adjustable. You can make up for the lack of money or knowledge in many different ways. You are always surrounded by experts in their fields because of it. You have a finance guy, house-chores guy, and even a gives-good-advice guy. That is your way of protecting yourself from potentially bad consequences of your decisions.

Meanings of dreams can be simpler. If you have recently used your computer or changed or deleted icons on it, that has made a strong impression on you.
