I have a couple of questions.

1: how do you get the start section small ?

2: why is it that every time I try to change the start button I get an error saying that explorer.exe can not be found? (let me add for this one, that the way I do it move the original to a back up folder. Then put the one to replace it in the windows folder.)

Maybe I should ask what version of seven you are using? I am using pro ..

[edit] I figirued out why the changing of dll files won't work. I would still like to know how to get small start menu [/edit]

[edit] [edit] I figured out how to adjust the height if the start menu [/edit][/edit]

Glad you figured all that out lol.

The height of the start menu is based off how many recent programs you have showing. Mine is set to 5 at the moment, plus the ones that I pin to it.

For explorer (the start button) you need to have full permissions over explorer.exe, once that is done. I rename the default to explorerbackup.exe and copy over my new file. Then I end the explorer.exe process, and restart it. Most people say reboot or log out but I like to do that.

I haven't rebooted yet. I am afraid to lol (I did the same thing with these. I just killed the process and restarted them when I was done) ... I did make a restore point before I changed everything, though.

I have used 8 different explorer.exe files from different people. Only one caused problems, so I say those are pretty good chances. lol

I never understood desktop cd art displays. When I am listening to music I am either looking at my music player, or doing something in my browser or something else.

Icons?

And how do you change those icons? Those are program file icons no?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
