I use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder for the .msstyles
Some use Restorator - Bome Software - Restorator - the resource editor for customization, localization, and translation. for the .msstyles and the system files
For the navigation buttons in Windows Explorer I use this tool Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Customizer: Change Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Easily | door2windows
For the start orb I use this StartOrbz v3.1.a by ~Blizo on deviantART or you can use Windows 7 Start Orb Changer: Ultimate Tool To Change Your Start Orb | door2windows
For the logon screen I use this tutorial Log On Screen - Change
Here is it good forum on learning how to customize Virtual Customs • Home • Customize Your Virtual World!

This will show you how to start a new theme Start menu color change ??
Post #38
Then open your new theme .msstyle in WSB & edit it with a image editor, the 1st time you click on the edit button it will ask you to set a image editor, browse to the .exe.
Here I changed part of the start menu red
Go to
Start Menu > Panels > Aero > Top > MorePrograms
click on Edit, set your image editor then edit the image (image is blue)

For the icon
1: Right click on internet explorer icon. select Properties dialog box, click Change Icon.
2: Click the Browse button.
3: Select the folder to which you saved your icons.
4: Select the icon you want to use, and then click Open.
5: Click OK, In the Internet Explorer Properties dialog box, click OK again.



Can you post a screenshot of the start menu?
