Good work mate. Just a few extra details:


Clarify that the explorer.exe you want to edit is:

C:\Windows\explorer.exe

and not C:\Windows\SysWOW64\explorer.exe (for those running x64)



And for those who use the larger DPI's i.e 125% , 150% you need to change:

6806 - 66 x 198
6807 - 81 x 243
6808 - 106 x 318


Lastly, perhaps mention restorator is shareware

A question.
How do you make a replacement Start Button move as the original one does when you hover the mouse over it or click it to start it ?
Do you need to have 3 different new pictures to replace the 3 in the original Start Button ?
All the best,
Mick C.

So I made my own start orb and when I mouse over it, I get a 1 second "dark gray" box around it (ie no transparency) then it fades quickly to transparent and animates to the 'mouseover' orb... its pretty annoying, what did i do wrong to induce this behavior?

FIXED:

In case anyone else has this problem, Apparently i had stray pixels outside of the respective orb areas. I drew a box around the space starting at the bottom pixel of the top orb, and the top pixel of the middle orb and deleted everything in it, then i did the same for the middle->bottom space, and cleaned up above the top one and below the bottom one - this fixed the weird sprite box i was having.

Also, you dont have to worry about cutting off any type of gradient / glow drop offs since the pixes below or above a given orb are clipped by the task bar anyway
