    Custom Start Menu Button Collection for Windows 10


    Over at Seven Forums there's a CustomStart Menu Button Collection post that's offers plenty of alternatives to Windows start appearance. I remembered a Xara tutorial by Gary Priester over at XaraXone.com a few years ago & liked it so much I thought I'd use Gary's techniques for a Windows 10 version. I used Classic Shell to change the Windows 10 start icon. Classic Shell does plenty more but my only goal was to change the Windows 10 start button icon shown below.

    Fromthis...

    to this.

    The icon works a little like a traffic light. When the task bar pops up, the top icon is visible. Move the mouse over the icon & the middle (10) icon is visible & select the icon with left mouse click the Windows flag pops up.

    This one works opposite on the second & third icons.

    Anyone can make their own or find others to used. Mine is a 54x162 pixels png with no background. You can go larger but be aware that the icon will overcrowd the taskbar. Give it a try. Have fun & post your results! :)

    Thanks!

    I used Xara Design Pro 6 & followed Gary Priester's tutorial at Xara Xone but modified it for Windows 10. Then setup a template in Photoshop CS6. There's some great ideas for these at the Seven Forum website. That's where I got the dimensions to make these.

    I had a PDF Template but I must have lost it with all of the changes to all of these Windows 10 releases. I don't think you need it anyway:)

    Classic Shell custom start menu button for a specified image


    Could anybody help me with this custom start menu. I've tried to edit with paint no luck. Sorry for bringing back this thread from the dead but could I use some of these images from seven forums? Or it's incompatible? Could I use some kind of specific image. Like one that I've found at google images I've saw some but with no luck of this specific pixels dimension and should I had to use Photoshop or any other kind of programs there are any free converters and redimensioners? Thanks in advance for everything.
