Want to create a start button using an icon that you like ? Yes, you can do it. But you cannot make it as a link or path. You have to make a windows start orb by that icon. If you know the process, carry on. Otherwise post you icon in https://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...tinued-28.html , any of us will do it for you

Do you mean this ? Attachment 63344 you place it anywhere ... in any folder or wherever in your desktop, just a double click on it will run the task menu .

I got it here from Download OpenStartMenu, OpenStartMenu Download

Let me know whether your case is now clear or not
