Centered start button (viorb)

Post by TheAslan »


I just wondered that is there any chance to center start button in taskbar? I know there's a chance to hide it but any chance to center it?

Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this

1) kill the start button (startkiller)
2) create a duplicate in rainmeter using chris'n'soft's openstartmenu utility
3) position duplicate as you wish, and set z-order as stay topmost
4) ????
5) profit

two known issues with this:
1) sits over taskbar items (no biggie, the start menu is a lot smaller than them, so it doesn't really obscure everything)
2) you lose access to the startmenu's occasionally useful right-click menu (ask yourself.. how many times have I used this feature)
