thank you...

I could, lol, but honestly, I've found that a cross start button doesn't always work very well and can tend to show a box around it when you hover over it, IMO.

Boondock Saints is among my top ten movies of all time! I can't even remember how many times I've watched it now... I'm keen to give this one a shot. Do you maybe have a particular image that you want made into an orb or can I just go pick one...?

It's all about the alpha layer, if that's set up properly you can have an orb with any shape and any areas transparent. Have a look at my tutorial here: How to Create Custom Start Orb Image

I did mention I love creating things... Right? Lol. Anyway, I really liked one pic I found of a Celtic cross, but the text was messing it up when I made it small enough to be a Start Orb... So I sort ofhad to redraw half the cross.

It's attached to this post at the botton (as usual, JPG example, BMP in RAR), is that what you were looking for?

Out of curiosity, does anybody here know what settings need to be changed in order to have a Start button of this size instead of the orb? I was looking the other night, but I couldn't find it. Or will selecting an image of this size with the Win 7 Start Button Changer automatically pick up the button width? I must admit I didn't try it, I was afraid I'd break something if I did... Lol.
Anyone know if these are ready to be used as orbs for the start menu or do i need some work done on them?
If anyone could make them into squares rather than their current shape and get rid of "start" i'd really appreciate it

I don't want to be aukward but i was wondering if anyone has the knowhow to make one with the android logo aswell? (the little green robot for the android OS)
I made a couple but i did real quick sure smeone else can make better.Anyway Enjoy.
