Windows 7 Start Button Changer 2.6

Allows you to change the Windows 7 Start Orb or Button easily
Although Windows 7 is a rather good-looking operating system, people still feel the need to customize it, so it's no wonder that applications designed to support their efforts in this regard have a huge success.

Windows 7 Start Button Changer is one of the simplest software solutions and although it does such a simple job, it's still highly appreciated by many users.

Just like its name suggests, this utility is created to help you change the way Windows 7's famous Start Orb looks like and after testing it, we can confirm that it's fully effective.

Since it makes changes to 'explorer.exe', it is recommended that you backup this file first just to make sure you can safely revert the change in case something goes wrong.

The actual operation of Windows 7 Start Button Changer comes down to a single click: press 'Select and change the start button'. Unfortunately, in order to perform the actual modification you will need to download a new button from the Internet, or to design your own, as the application doesn't include new items.

Nevertheless, Windows 7 Start Button Changer remains a pretty good solution that works almost instantly and although it restarts 'explorer.exe', you shouldn't encounter any problem. In case you want to go back to the original look, the utility automatically creates a backup so you can restore the standard settings.

All in all, Windows 7 Start Button Changer is the simplest and the most efficient way to change the Start Orb. You can try it for yourself to see just how easy it can be to give a new look to your Start button; you can revert the modification anytime.
