  1. "start button"

    Yes, Follow the tutorial.
  2. "start button"

    Hello guys, I'm programmer of StartBtn Renamer, I hope that you found my program useful. But for now, I like to tell you an other way to rename the [start] button manualy. A great Tip indeed! First you need a software which named "Resource Hacker". This free program allows you to change resources in any .exe file such as "Explorer.exe", which includes the [start] button's Label. You can visit http://www.download.com and search in there for the "Resource Hacker" keyword. After you download it from there: Step #1) A- Run "Resource Hacker" and open the file "%windir%\Explorer.exe". B- You see a Tree of all Resources in this file, expand the "String Table C- Find the "start" and replace it with your own text. then press the [Compile Script] button. D- SAVE "Explorer.exe" AS "MyStart.exe" (I mean do not save the original Explorer.exe, but SAVE it AS a new file) E- Quit "Resource Hacker". Step #2) A- Click on the [start] button and choose the "Run..." item from the start menu. (Or use the shortcut key WinKey+R) B- Type "RegEdit" in the Run "Dialog Box". And then press the [Ok] buton to run the "Registry Editor" program. C- Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" and find the "Shell" property. D- Replace value of the "Shell" property to "MyStart.exe". E- Quit "Registry Editor". F- Restart your system. Note about Registry Editor: if you did not find the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon", you can search the Registry for the "Explorer.exe", to do this use the Edit Menu | Find Next (Ctrl+F). I hope that you finally rename the [start] button succesfully :-) Have a nice day, AmirBehzad Eslami http://www.startbtn.main-page.com
