Aero Peek Start Buttons by jpranaymartin Aero Peek Start Buttons by jpranaymartin
A start button designed to balance your screen by emulating the Aero Peek button. Works well with the default theme... obviously... and looks good with dark wallpapers. Comes in two variations - top taskbar, small icons or bottom taskbar, big icons. If you can't mod it to fit you're needs (yes, I'm allowing mods, but not re-releases), then tell me and I'll charge you a million dollars to make you the .bmp. ONLY JOKING! :P But seriously, I'll make more variations if you want.

Get it working with =Kishan-Bagaria's Start Orb Changer: [link]

Inspired by ~xjannikx's concept, [link] Thanks mate!

If you likey, download and fav. Have ideas and suggestions? Leave me a comment and if you're bored, check out my gallery. (it's OK to admit that you're bored; it's winter and I'm bored too! ;))

EDIT 1: Now available for all taskbar configurations!
EDIT 2: New variation - Hover and click to see the good old Windows colors!

Oh, and here's another orb by yours truly: [link] Cheers!

Hey, I switched to a Mac two years ago. So I haven't kept up with Win customization.

However, if you can send/link me to a png used by Start8 then I can customize this image to fit Start8.

request, make it usable for having the taskbar on the left or right side. :D It looks awesome!

Thanks for the fav! I'll try to put it together asap but before i start, do you use large icons or small icons? Sizing it the right way is a hassle...

Btw, You have an amazing gallery going! Keep up the awesome work and good luck with the photography! :)

Wow, thank you for the compliment and watch! :D

I use the large icons on my taskbar. ;P

Shucks. I'm sorry bro but the peek button start orb is impossible. Windows automatically centers the orb in a way that makes it impossible to put the image high enough. It's always shunted down. Sorry to disappoint... :(
