Editors' Review

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.

"Never got beyond the download farm---"

April 27, 2010  |  By robertpri007

 |  Version: Windows 7 Start Button Changer 2.5

Pros

never got it

Cons

This thing clicks to another site with multiple downloads, and then another site with all commercial software for sale, and I finally got fed up and left. I'm sure it's there some place, but not worth any more effort.

April 24, 2010  |  By Sweet_Peaches

 |  Version: Windows 7 Start Button Changer 2.5

Pros

I stated before that it's easy to use, sure the download link brings you to the official website but when you scroll all the way to the bottom you can download it directly from Softpedia.

Cons

None it's simple. :)

Summary

I like how you can use the "restore original backup" to bring back your old default start menu.
