Windows 7 customizing – Start button is no exception




Without a doubt Windows 7 a niceoperating system when it comes to personalization.

In this process of changing the start orb we will be using the Start Button Changer, simple to operate, easy to use, the only thing you need to remember before using it is using as an Administrator.



Download: Start Button Changer

Everything set? Ok, let's go.



* Download of the Start Button Changer

* Extract all files within a folder

* Click on Windows Start Button 7 changer.exe with the right mouse and select Run as Administrator.

The main window should appear with the following options:




. The Select & Change Start Button will change the image that we select.

. The Original Restore Explorer will bring again the regular orb image

the application brings 10 files, simply navigate to the folder and select one of your liking.

But this does not mean it will be restricted only to these, do a quick search of Google, which will return in a moment many results.


   


* Click on Select & Change Start Button and the application will automatically make a backup, so don't worry!
The exchange of the image is simple and quick, without any event!

* If by chance you get tired or no longer want to get is altered image, just use the second option Restore Original Backup Explorer application that brings back thedefault image.

In rare cases in 64-bit system can show an error message, but do not worry, just click continue, close the application then run the Windows Start Button 7changer.exe again but with administrator privileges. Don't forget to run as an administrator (You can see that I did haha)

That's really awesome, but let's say that you change almost everything in the windows 7, isn't going to get slower?

@mindlessfrk
This is very relative. Yes and No. Well, there are some examples of things that might indeed make your computer slow (Such as themes and skins that add more heavy images and animations) When it comes to the start button, not at all. The difference is, you will be changing for an equivalent image, in other words, it wont change the loading speed of the computer at all, dont worry :)
