Windows 7: How do I change the Window Boot Manager text?

How do I change the Window Boot Manager text?

How do I change the look of Windows Boot Manager. I was able to use BCDedit and make some changes, but how do I get rid of the the tools menu at the bottom?

I know it is nitpicky type stuff but some of these things annoy me and I know there has to be a way to change them.

Hi 2kx2, welcome to the forums

I don't think you can change the "tools menu".
EasyBCD should allow you to change the boot menu text, but here are instructions how to use BCDEDIT for that too, in case you can't accomplish it with EasyBCD: BCDEDIT - How to Use

I don't want to change the menu, I want to remove it as a selection. I would like to be able to customize the look of boot manager. I am sure there is a way to do it but I don't know where the file is located to manipulate it.

Windows doesn't have a GUI boot manager, does it? Actually, I'm not sure it even has a boot manager at all as such. What am I supposed to be looking at?

I don't know of any way to do that. The only I can think of is to boot from multiple drives, but if you are concerned with the "tools menu" you probably don't want to do that, it requires selecting the boot drive with the right BIOS selection.
