  • A Collection of Windows 7 Start Orbs

    Just to be clear these are orbs that I have collected over the years. There are some .PNG as well as .BMP Images. What is shown is just a small sampling.

    Sounds and looks like an awesome collection..
    Nice share Gary, thank you..


    Just one suggestion if I may..
    Why not include some information about an app like 'Windows 7 Start Button Changer', or some tips to manually change start orbs your self???

          I don't use an app. I use .png images and place them in a folder named explorer.exe and labeled 6801, 6805 and 6809. If I can't change the .BMP files I just do not use them. The link you provided will only work with .BMP images and if you have several themes it will only change the start orb for the Windows Default and or and themes that do not have a separate Explorer.exe folder , which of course goes with the Theme folder . They would look like the image below:

          I use the above on Creator's M.C. Blaeu Theme. It fits with it.

              Gary you know there is a small app that coverts BMP to PNG without loss of the Alpha Channel.
              I use it all the time when i find startorbs in BMP...just run this little app choose png and drag your startorb bmp image in the app it will convert it to png and you can use it right away in your theme folder!

              More info here: http://www.megathemer.x10.mx/showthr...am-Najmanowicz

                  Thanks for that reminder I had forgot about that app also, and thanks for the thread for that app here at MT...
                  I am always thinking about the peeps who like to do things manually and would have trouble with either a BMP, or a PNG file..
                  Not trying to offend Gary at all, or point out only ONE way to change a start orb, so thanks to Gary for the tip today about using the included .png files with theme resource changer. That leaves the other question answered by Megabink about what to do with the .bmp images in this download since it was not covered in the Opening Post.

                        I always hide my task bar so orbs never were anything that I felt needed to change except for when the theme changes it for me. Nice collection Gary! Maybe one day soon I will try creating my own theme using one of these orbs.
