    A simple application to change the Windows 7 start button has been created by 12 year old Kishan Bagaria.

    Windows 7 Start Button Changer is a free tiny portable tool that allows you to change your Windows 7 start orb/button with just one click.

    Just follow the 1-2-3 simple steps to change your start orb:

    1. Run the tool as administrator and click on “Select & Change Start Button”.

    2. When it asks for the new start orb bitmap, either choose from any of the sample start orb bitmaps provided or choose the one you have.
    If you have changed the start orb bitmap for the first time using this tool then it will create a backup of the unmodified explorer.exe.

    3. The Windows Explorer will now restart automatically and you will get the new start orb/button which you choosed.

    If you want to revert to the original start orb then click on “Restore Original Explorer Backup”.

    The two files “Windows 7 Start Button Changer.exe” & “r.exe” must be in the same directory for the tool to work.

    The credits of the 10 sample start orb bitmaps are mentioned in the “Credits.txt” file in the 10 Sample Orbs folder.

    This freeware portable app allows you change the Windows 7 Start Orb or Button easily.
