  2. Download any start orb you like (or in this case, an entire collection of orbs).
  3. Open the Start Orb Changer.
  4. Accept any UAC prompts.
  5. Click on "Select & Change start button".
  6. Navigate to the start orb you want, and double click it.
  7. Exit the program, and tadaa.

If you mean if they move without you touching them (e.g. like a .gif file), then no. That is impossible for as far as I know.

Hope that this helps anyone:)

Wow! This is amazing! Too bad my Windows 7 tends to revert to the original Start button when explorer.exe is restarted.
