Visual Studio Icons

The Visual Studio Icons are helpful as they pictorially convey a lot of meaning. However, as there are so many of them it sometimes gets hard to know what an icon denotes. In some cases, icons within Visual Studio have tool-tips that convey their purpose but not always. After extensive searching, I have found that MSDN doesn't have a single point of reference or a map where all the icons & their descriptions are listed. I plan to compile them here whenever I spot a table reference while I'm MSDN surfing.
