HOW TO CHANGE YOUR START ORB :
------------------------------------------

Method 1 :
********

Use this other tool to change the exe : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria


Method 2 :
********

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)
[link]
and use the old trick by using the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)


Method 3 : (thanks to yayme)
********

[link]



Or you can use a resources hacker like ResHacker or Restorator in order to change the picture inside the explorer.exe.

(C:Windowsexplorer.exe)




Don't hesitate to ask if you encounter problems !!!






HOW TO CHANGE ICONS ON THE SUPERBAR :

First, place your shortcut on the desktop, change icon by : right-click > Properties > Change icons > browse..... > OK > OK
only then place this shortcut on the superbar,
and now it works. :)






I hope you like it !

I can't remember where I found it, but there is an explorerframe out there somewhere that matches this orb perfectly! If anyone has the link, I would really appreciate it.

Hiya! I've downloaded your start icon, and what's the difference between the "Last version" and "SP1" version? For now I'm using the SP1 version and everything seems to be fine. Thanks. :D

If you're doing the Windows update then use the "Last version", it means the most updated one, where the "SP1" version was the first one released with the SP1.

Nevermind the previous question ^_^

What's the difference between the "Final Version" and "SP1" version? Also, what's the difference between "Normal" and "On top"?

Thanks! Great Work! :)

Sp1 version is the first version of SP1, right when the pack was released. But there was updates since, so if you're making all the Windows updates then use the Final Version :)

The On Top versions of my theme are meant if you're using your taskbar on top, the normal version is for the taskbar on bottom.
