    How to change Start Menu icon?


    How can I change the Start Menu icon?
    I used a program for this on Windows 7, Start8 had a feature for Windows 8, but I couldn't find anything for Windows 10.
    I'm afraid that the one I used for Windows 7 will cause bugs, etc and don't want Start8 either, beacuse I love the looks of the new menu.
    Just want to change the icon to match my other metro-styled icons on the desktop and taskbar.
    Any ideas?

    There is nothing in that post about changing what I was talking about, to be precisely this:

    You can try the following link but make a restore point, it messes with system files!

    If nothing yet, just give a week or two. . .

    Looks good Jeff! I figured it was harmless software, for the most part.

    One thing I forgot to do was change the size of the ICON's from small to large and I also added a few new ones to the group that came along with the app.

    Here's what it looks like:

    Nice Jeff!
    Experience any repercussions from the software?
