I am trying to change the image on the WindowsXP similar to eldergeek. While this works fine for changing the text in the start button, I am having difficulty changing the windows logo to another image.
The problem is that I don't know how to save the bitmap while keeping the transparency intact. Does anyone know of any free software that can save bitmaps with transparency that windows will respect?
I got this working with some slight modifications to the answer listed below: The bitmap is in folder 143(not 142). Axialis IconWorkshop worked, IcoFX didn't. If you want to use only a bitmap(and not text), you have to change the value of the "start" string to a single space. If you use an empty string, you get weird results. The start string is typically within folder #37 in the string table.
