steelOrb (big arrow), a start orb for Windows 7

explorer.exe for Windows 7 64bits & 32bits (build 7600.16450) included !
Now with the last SP1 versions !
DO NOT USE WITH ANOTHER VERSION of windows !!!!!


Icons not included : kARÉ by me (check my gallery ^^)

Wallpaper not included : DREAMS by Psychopulse


***

You can use a resources hacker (best method !) in order to change it like ResHacker or Restorator.
(C:Windowsexplorer.exe)

OR follow this simple tutorial :

HOW TO REPLACE EXPLORER.EXE :
--------------------------------------------

Method 1 :
********

Use this easy-to-use tool : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria


Method 2 :
********

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)
[link]
and use the old trick by using the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)


Method 3 : (thanks to yayme)
********

Don't hesitate to ask if you encounter problems !!!






HOW TO CHANGE ICONS ON THE SUPERBAR :

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 !

Fantastic start orbs! Some of the best in this category.

Do you think you could update them to build 7600.16539? Ive tried all of them and they dont work with this build.....am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks in advance

i left a comment on the soft 7 vs about not working, i got it up and running now. i have a new prob tho, this start button dosent seem to fit, it leaves a little extra space at the top. how can i fix that? i used this to replace the icon [link]
AlexandrePh's avatar
Yes when on top there is a 1px line on bottom, I'll see what I can do next week. I'll have to finish Soft7 first.

Wow, thanks. It looks much better than that blue button. It even matches my iMac.
AlexandrePh's avatar
I agree with you about the blue button ^^
And if it can match your iMac then great ! :D
