Tested working with Start8 on Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7 Start Orb Changer V5.
ClassicShell 4.2.4+ users can use the orbs located in Windows 8 Metro Orbs/Windows 7 Users/Large Taskbar/ for now.
Not currently tested with Start10 or StartIsBack+/StartIsBack++, feel free to report back until I can conduct testing/updating if needed.
