How to Create Your Own Start Button Icons for Classic Shell

If you want to create your own start button icons for Classic Shell, you will need an image editing software that can handle transparency, such as Photoshop, GIMP, or Paint.NET. You will also need to follow some guidelines for creating a good-looking start button icon:

  • The image size should be 54x162 pixels for normal DPI, or 81x243 pixels for high DPI.

  • The image should have three states: normal, hot (when hovered over), and pressed (when clicked). Each state should occupy one third of the image height.

  • The image should have a transparent background, except for the area of the button itself.

  • The image should have smooth edges and no jagged pixels.

  • The image should match the color scheme and style of your taskbar and start menu.

You can use any shape or design for your start button icon, as long as it follows these guidelines. You can also use existing icons as a reference or a template. For example, you can use one of the default Windows 7 start buttons and modify it with your own colors or images. You can also use some of the other buttons from the compilation or from the forum as inspiration.

Once you have created your own start button icon, you can save it as a PNG file and apply it to your start menu using the same steps as above.


Downloading and applying start button icons for Classic Shell is a simple and fun way to customize your Windows 7 start menu. You can choose from a variety of icons available online, or create your own using an image editing software. You can also experiment with different styles and colors to suit your preferences and mood. With Classic Shell, you can make your start menu look exactly how you want it.
