I'm not sure these work with Classic Shell as I've never tried that program.

There is a 'Start Button' settings tab judging from the screenshots here : www.classicshell.net/gallery/C…

If you're on Windows 7, You can use a program like Windows 7 Start Orb Changer V5 to change your start orb.

If you're on Windows 8, You can use Sstart8 to change your orb just note how ever this program is not free.

Maybe a soft orange type fade for the hover or would you prefer something different?

Would it be possible to get these in .png or .jpg? The start orb changer I'm using doesn't support .bmp. I know it works with Start8 and Win7 Start Orb Changer, but I'm not using either of those. Better to have the option then not, am I right? :D

Could you tell me which start orb changer program you use then so that I may try converting some orbs to potentially work with it?

I'm using StarIsBack, a very popular Windows 8 Start Button program. startisback.com/

As I said, they support .bmp and .png

Thanks a lot!
