The interface is represented by a regular window with a plain and simple layout, where you can point out an image to apply as the new Start menu orb using the file browser, as long as the file has the PNG, ICO, GIF, JPEG or JPG format. You are required to insert three images that represent the default, hover and pressed orb, respectively.
Applying the new setting is done with the simple click of a button. In addition, you can export the orb to file to use at a later time and even create multiple items.
