Recently RSVR85 showed you how to manually customize the start button in Windows 7. If the thought of resource hacking makes you a little queezy, you can use a tool, created by Windows Forums member Kishan.

In this guide, I’ll show you where to get the tool and how to use it.

Windows 7 Start Orb Changer

To change your Start button with Windows 7 Start Orb Changer:

  6. Enjoy your new Start button:
