Windows 7 Orb Changer – Easily Change the Start Button (Orb)
Windows 7 has completely revamped the Start Button and it is now called “Start Orb“. Start Orb in Windows 7 looks cooler and leaner than its previous avatars. If you want to have a unique and custom Start Orb look, we have a very fascinating freeware application to do this job, called Windows 7 Orb Changer. You can now easily change the look of the orb and customize and beautify it with your own custom-made image.
Note: Before changing the Start Orb look, make sure that you have made a backup of Windows Explorer. To create a backup, just click on ‘Make Backup of Explorer’ button present in the application.
To Change the default Start Orb look, click on ‘Change Orb‘ and choose from the list of 38 already given bitmap images present in the app. You can also choose your own custom-made bitmap image. It also supports jpg, png, and gif image formats.
Changing the Orb requires Windows Explorer restart. If you don’t want to restart Explorer and want the change to take place after the next reboot, don’t forget to check the option ‘Don’t Restart Explorer Now‘.
According to the author, Kishan Bagaria, Windows 7 Orb Changer works on both Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit OS.
