Windows 7: Custom Navigation button thread

Custom Navigation button thread

We have several Customization threads.

Probably, we are first to start a new type of customization thread in Windows 7 Forum arena: Custom Navigation button thread.

We, fortunately got a bunch of excellent graphical artists here, so, we can expect, this thread will be showcase of excellence soon.

Why we will change?

1. There is a possibility, that you like a particular theme, but you want to change the navigation button only, for that, you change the whole theme. Now, we can particularly change it.

2. We can customize Windows 7 with more richer animation (like we did for Start Orb) of our choice.

How to change?

I today have posted a tutorial on how to change it.

Read here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...on-change.html

I dont know if any "easy" application is made by anyone to make it easy; but I hope, we will get such app soon.

So, please start contribution

Thanks A Guy a ton for the link, but it does not work

No, I just showed color changing, but, more creative things can be done (like we did with Start Orb and doing!)...more glow effect..more indent effect on hover etc.

I cant check the app (due to broken link or something wrong from my side), may be it have such options...
