Windows 7 Start Orb Changer is a free app that allows users on Windows 7 machines to change their Start buttons on their machines with a lot of ease. The app is very easy to use, and when launched, presents you with an interface that allows you to change your start button by selecting a new one easily. Windows 7 Start Orb Changer is completely free, and does not have any ads whatsoever. The app does not consume a lot of system memory, and what’s even more important, is the fact that it does not need to stay running in the background for keeping your orb changed, because it works by patching the explorer.exe file with a custom start orb of your choice. So even if you uninstall the app after changing your Start orb, the Start Orb that you have changed will remain changed for eternity.
The app has a neat interface, and the controls are pretty much self-explanatory. Resource consumption is kept to a minimum even when the app is active, and the app does not take a toll on your battery either.
Windows 7 Start Orb Changer is available as a free download.
