Another update by request: added black/grey/white versions

Also added variants for small taskbar
Small update: Added wide version which looks pretty neat

5 colors for each variant are still inside.

And now for something completely different: Metro stuff :)

Made a bunch of Metro styled start buttons, to accompany Omnimo 4. I'm surprised to see nobody made these before. Pretty simple and useable (for me anyway). Made them mostly for myself, just thought I'd share :P

Comments are welcome!

The start button (every single one I try) is 2-3 pixels too high for my "small" task bar.

A black wide one like the other you made would be great! They are awesome though!

I am creating some ViStart themes, will you allow me to use your start orbs in them? Credits will be mentioned. :)

Looks good! Could you make an .exe version? :)
fediaFedia's avatar
Well, you can use a start orb changer or do it manually. There are so many versions of explorer.exe that I can't keep them up to date...
vettexl's avatar
Alright, thanks!
ted08's avatar

Hi, I know how to do the following, because you included explorer files.
Could you tell me what settings do you export with from gimp or ps? flatten/merge and 16/24/32bit and their variables, do you export with black background or it shows up black after export?
Thank you in advance!

32bit BMP

It works correctly because it's a solid orb with no transparent parts.

thanks, I'm asking because I have a custom orb (see my deviations for a simmilar 1), and I am having trouble right now, but I'll restore explorer.exe under System32 ans SysWOW64 (pacthed with something) and modify only explorer.exe in Windows folder.
:P
