Make it as tiny as you like. I made my start button tutorial because the button stuck out over the top of the task bar and annoyed me when use small icons was turned on.

Start Button - Create a Rectangular Start Button you can make your own rectangular (or orb) with freeware easily. Just shrink it below 28 pixels high to keep it inside the task bar.

I tried this trick earlier and now explorer.exe always asks for permission to do stuff. For example, I tried editing the security of a system file, and I got the "exploer.exe wants to modify system settings...etc etc.. Yes or No" - it's the UAC prompt, basically.

How do I set the patched explorer.exe to 'full trust'?

Why don't you rather just use option 1 in the tutorial...? It automatically creates a backup of Explorer, and if you need to it can restore the backup as well.

Start Button Change Problem

I had a BSOD and after restarting the Win7 Start button changed to a rectangular button with the 'word' Start in it.

The rest of the Start menu window also changed to one I've never seen before.

Maybe connected to it, all my Desktop folders do Not show they have content.

Any ideas as to what was changed?

Thanks,

Bill

I just copied explorer.exe onto my USB flash Drive just in case... I renamed it explorer.exe.bak in the windows folder and didn't have any problem changing it back and rebooting it.

I'm only on Windows XP here at work, my Windows 7 PC is at home, so I can't test it at the moment... But try this one, it should fit pretty well on a small taskbar. The BMP file you'll need is in the ZIP file.
