Windows 7: Image in Start menu

Image in Start menu

Is there a way to move that picture so that it sits alittle above the box?
Right now the picture sits in the menu box.

Thanks in advanced!

If your picture is completely on the start menu, you are using a basic theme:

Name:  Basic.jpg
Views: 4
Size:  34.3 KB

You need to use one of the Aero themes, or a 3rd party theme for the picture to be 1/2 on 1/2 off:

Theme - Change or Save

I'm using a custom theme, A Infinity one.
If tried all the themes & it the same, I just recognized this the other day?

That's odd...Do you have a link to your theme? I thought all 3rd party themes displayed that way, unless it was designed that way. We have Mr Grim (Mark), Pauliewog (Paul), The Bull, and other theme designers that post here, perhaps someone will have another idea, but I don't think you can change just that without Style Builder or another app. Post a link if you have one, and we'll have a look.
