Windows 7: start orb position

start orb position

ok, this doesn't seem to happen to anyone else but when my orb's taller than the height of the taskbar it doesn't sit on the base of the task bar anymore, instead, part of the orb is cut off like in the screencap (the tiny one).

can anyone mind telling me how to get the orb to sit on the taskbar properly, with the top of it above the taskbar? sorry, i can't really explain it properly.

btw, i used Windows 7 Start Button Changer v 2.6 to change my orb

yes, but how do you make it sit on the taskbar with the top cut through the taskbar? like the first pic in the link you gave me. as far as i could see the tutorial only tells you about how to MAKE one.
i tried to shift the entire 3 orbs on a smaller version of the orbs image and when it's applied it's just a blank space there :/
here's my second set of screencaps if it helps my bad explanation.

Can you put that orb in a zip and let one of us look at it, is it a .bmp?

I've never had any problem with the start orb changer you're using,

We can try it on one of ours and see if we can figure it out for you.

I'm not sure why it's not working for you, I just used the 6801,6805,6809 and it worked for me.

see the second attachment in my last post: i tried to move the whole thing up a bit
the first: when i applied it after i moved it up, what's supposed to be the orb is now just a blank space.
the original (54*162) one in the works though, without my "modifications", that is.

it's nothing important, i just want to know how to get it to poke above the taskbar like this one:

In taskbar properties, check the use small icons, that's why the ones in your screenshot above are small.
