I'm new to the whole customizing Windows 7 thing, I've figured out how to change the orb, but I was wondering if anybody could make some for "A Song of Ice and Fire". Maybe a direwolf, it doesn't really matter to me. Thanks in advance, and I'll try to spend some time around these forums and see what I can learn.

Could someone please make this start orb a tad smaller? It makes my taskbar icons look tiny.

Try this one... The BMP files are in the RAR, and I included the PSd in case you want to play with in.

I'm a bit bored today, so I did one in the same style as the file you posted, and another one with an 'inset' look to it (black inner shadow, white outer 'shadow').

Oh, and every time I make an orb, I do one with white background and one with a black background. Try them both and decide which one works better for you.

As an afterthought, perhaps the 'inset' version could use a very subtle outline.. Hmmm.. If you like the idea I'll clean it up and post it again.

Thanks, Dre. They look great! I'm using the inset one by the way.
