Metro Squared 7 Start Buttons by fediaFedia Metro Squared 7 Start Buttons by fediaFedia
Another update by request: added black/grey/white versions

Also added variants for small taskbar
Small update: Added wide version which looks pretty neat

5 colors for each variant are still inside.

--

And now for something completely different: Metro stuff :)

Made a bunch of Metro styled start buttons, to accompany Omnimo 4. I'm surprised to see nobody made these before. Pretty simple and useable (for me anyway). Made them mostly for myself, just thought I'd share :P

Comments are welcome!

The start button (every single one I try) is 2-3 pixels too high for my "small" task bar.

A black wide one like the other you made would be great! They are awesome though!

Well, you can use a start orb changer or do it manually. There are so many versions of explorer.exe that I can't keep them up to date...

Hi, I know how to do the following, because you included explorer files.
Could you tell me what settings do you export with from gimp or ps? flatten/merge and 16/24/32bit and their variables, do you export with black background or it shows up black after export?
Thank you in advance!

32bit BMP

It works correctly because it's a solid orb with no transparent parts.

thanks, I'm asking because I have a custom orb (see my deviations for a simmilar 1), and I am having trouble right now, but I'll restore explorer.exe under System32 ans SysWOW64 (pacthed with something) and modify only explorer.exe in Windows folder.
:P

Because no decent themer even tried making a metro theme yet. Don't worry though, this might change soon :)

I really like the look of this, but I dislike the default W7 taskbar height, but there's only 1 small option. Do you plan to expand the options for the traditional size buttons in a future version?

Oh, one more thing I just noticed: It doesn't work right if your taskbar's at the top of your screen. I assume it's a similar situation with side-taskbars. I fixed up the one I was interested in myself, but yeah. It's another thing that you could do for a future version lol. Although I think taskbars on top are probably a lot less common than small taskbars, so it might not be a big deal.

I tweaked it a bit for my own tastes.
Except now I just realized my FF button is one pixel too short, which means if I fix that, then the 1 pixel stretch I gave the start button is unnecessary... I shall tweak it some more!
But yeah, I think it looks best centered, myself. Which is also what I expected it was at first, going by the preview image up there.

can you release ones that are a bit wider? This is incredible but because of its width it kind of looks weird in the task bar
