Windows 7: Start Orb

Start Orb

I was just wondering if anyone knows if and how you can re-size the start orb. I have been trying to figure this out for a while. I prefer the taskbar on the top of my screen, so the orb gets in the way. Any insight would be appreciated.

Welcome to Seven Forums RIDGLEJR229. How about if you make it invisable, but still functional? Courtesy of Kishan.

It is not anyhow possible to resize a start ORB . You are to redo it .... here is the technique that a lot of guys use : How to Create Custom Start Orb Image .

If the button is round or squarish , top or bottom does not look a lot different , but for other shapes like an aple logo, you are to adjust the nudge positions of the three layers .

I have it set to invisible, we will see if I like it. Thank you Arc for your contribution, although I do not have the time as of right now to go through the whole process. I plan on doing so some time in the near future.
