Mr Grim, I was trying to change explorer icon but didn't do a good job, I'd like to replace the blue with black, I'll post a screenshot so you can get the idea, like I've said before, I'm not good with image editing programs, so don't laugh okay, I just made this as an example of what I'd like to see....

May have been answered but I can't find it. I have resource tuner and I can navigate to Explorer.exe and get to the bitmaps but, What bitmap do I change when changing the start orb? There are a bunch of them in different sizes. I guess a better question is what are the different sizes and I coul resize the bitmap I have ready

I have question...

Is there any way to "pin" an icon pack to a theme? It would be great to have a black icon/black folder pack pinned to a black theme, and a blue pack pinned to a blue theme, etc... That way a single click would change them all.

No worries mate! That 'tacky' green colored one is for the Home Premium build you're running! But I'll use the one you requested.

You will need a set of 3 orbs to make your start button change. I'll do you some a bit later on, and you can check them out!

EDIT: Look at these, and tell me what you think mate!
