Win8 orb (black edition), a start orb for Windows 7, based on Internet Explorer 9

explorer.exe for Windows 7 64bits & 32bits (build 7600.16450) and SP1 (7601.17514) included !
Do not use with another version of Windows !

BMP and PNG included

Preview made with :

Windows theme not included : Soft7 2.0 by me and Clearscreen Sharp by ~K-Johnson

Icons not included : Token by ~brsev and kARÉ by me

Wallpaper not included : Groove by =kiko11

Taskbar Drop Shadow by ~sweatyfish



Method 1 :

Use this tool to change the exe : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria

Method 2 :

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)
and use the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)

Or you can use a resources hacker like ResHacker or Restorator in order to change the picture inside the explorer.exe (safest method !)



First, place your shortcut on the desktop, change icon by : right-click > Properties > Change icons > browse..... > OK > OK
only then place this shortcut on the superbar,
and now it works. :)

I hope you like it !

Any chance you could add a "small square" version that would fit inside a narrow taskbar?

those orbs are awesome, but seems im doing sdomething wrong here, cause the big size orb is blue on my desktop, and i guess it should be black, because the rest of the package are black.
