if you've downloaded this orb you might be dissapointed by the look of it when you apply it,

Okay so this is the deal: Windows 7 Start Button Changer does not like transparent orbs :C, im trying somethings out to fix it but maybe its impossible.... anyways ill do my best.

The .BMP format does not support transparent images but most icons use the Alpha channel to remove everything that is not wanted in the icon.
in my situating, however the whole icon is transparent so everything behind it isnt removed...

so the normal sized orb is usable ( almost invisble background) but with the smaller orb its very disturbing. so its unusable.

WoW i haven't thought that this could be that populair! thanks for the 20 favs and comments ill make a small one :)

and... its on!
now includes a small taskbar version!



for those who don't have windowblinds and still want a piece of the skin :P

take a look at Kishan-Bagaria’s Windows 7 Start Button Changer for a little tutorial for his program which you need

here's the link : [link]

S-u-P-R-e-M-e's avatar
