Simple Start Orb by brsev Simple Start Orb by brsev
This is the simple, minimal start orb I use with my Token icon set on Windows 7. It works well with all backgrounds. The icon is the windows flag distilled into a single shape.

Requires a resource hacker to replace the files in explorer.exe. Offered as-is for those who know what to do with it. Using it in a visual style is for release is permitted.

See it in use here: [link]

So hot! Love it :)
I (always) hate the orb of Window, this one look very most minimalist and clear thank you very much for this good initiative ;)
An easy way to change your Start Orb is to use this software : [link]

How do I change the logo to start in seven? :?
Nice orb :D Can you share me that with transparent background (PNG)? Thanks
I'm sorry to ask you about that but after hours of search and thousands of pages of forum read I give up...
I wish to create my own start orb. I know it's a bmp and everything and I've learned that it needs an alpha channel in order to be transparent but still I didn't make it...
I don't know how exactly make this alpha channel, I don't know if I've got to ad a black layer under or not...

I'm using photoshop, I've also tested with gimp but it's the same result...

I'm disappointed, I'm totaly not a newb but I can't make it... please help me
