Windows 7: Moving the start button

Moving the start button

I have my taskbar on the left side of my screen, therefore the start button is at the top.

has anyone found a way to invert the positions of the system tray and start button, so that the start button is in the bottom left corner and the system stuff is at the top?

i am guessing no, but it is worth a shot.


edit: i am running build 7057, if it matters.

To my Knowledge there is not away to do this, sorry, I wish there were because I would probably set my desk top up that way as well if my start button could be at the bottom left hand corner, task tray at he top.
