I was wondering if there was anyway to edit the little graphic on the left side of the start menu in windows. Anyone know how?

Unless you're using somekind of windows shell replacement (windows blinds, talisman, geoshell, etc)...

Nope, it's impossible

Actually, it is possible! I read in an issue of Maximum PC where they used a Hex code program or something to edit the word "Start" (at least). They wrote "Igor!" :D As soon as find the mag, I'll post the issue and (if it isn't too long) the instructions. ;)

Found it! July 2001. Basically: use a Hex editor like UltraEdit-32 to read a copy of explorer.exe, find all instances of START in Hex, change it (5 character max), copy explorer.exe to Win directory in DOS mode (can't be done in Windows), reboot (exact details in mag, this is VERY oversimplified)! Won't work in Win2K :( . Igor! :D

They also provide these links: for the above app it's http://www.idmcomp.com/downloads; for another app that lets you also change the image it's http://members.fortunecity.com/rbnwares1. Maybe I'll post a scan of the page . . .

Asz talk about the little windows graphic on the left side of the start menu not the text.:)

I guess this isn't what you're looking for either, but I just use the "show small icons in start menu option".

BTW Asz, is your sig from that funny D&D flash movie? "I wanna cast magic missle." Can you give me a link to that cause I forgot where to find it. Just PM me if you want.
thanks,
Adair

I'm guessing that you want to say winXp eh;)

I have the same windowblinds skin. V2.2 added extra skin support to the taskbar so I assume that it can now be changed. However Thecat2000 hasn't updated the skin yet. Download skinstudio and see if its possible to make one that way.

Yeah from the D&D movie I don't know where I got it because my friend gave it to me from god knows where.
