Spruce up your Start button

To paraphrase a line from Wolverine, the Windows 7 Start Button Changer is the best there is at what it does. And what it does is very simple: it changes your Windows 7 Start button.

To paraphrase a line from Wolverine, the Windows 7 Start Button Changer is the best there is at what it does. And what it does is very simple: it changes your Windows 7 Start button. A one-hit wonder that should appeal to the customizing fanatic, the lightweight program provides two buttons on its simple interface: it allows you to easily change your Start button, and it allows you to back up your current one.

Click the Select & Change button to open a file browser to choose your new Start button icon. If you're not sure where to get one, the art Web site DeviantArt is a good place to start. Press the Restore Original Explorer Backup to make a backup of your existing one, and restore it when you tire of your customization.

The noninvasive tool doesn't need a glitzy interface, but could benefit from shorter button names and clearer indications that the buttons are actually buttons. Small hangups aside, this is an easy way to add a bit more of your personal style to your Windows 7 computer.
