Windows 7: Have a fixed Start Orb while Taskbar Auto-Hides

Have a fixed Start Orb while Taskbar Auto-Hides

hi i was wondering if there is any way to make the start orb fixed on desktop while the taskbar is set to auto-hide?

at the moment i have transbar on and have changed my orb with orb changer 2.6. i noticed sometimes it does stay up while the bar goes down, so maybe i could do an edit or something to give just the orb a non auto-hide value. i really don't want to download a customizer just for this function, unless the tool is executable without installation and just does that one function.
