Cutie Mark Start Buttons by Mwr247 Cutie Mark Start Buttons by Mwr247
Hey there!

With a lack of ponified Windows start buttons, I felt inclined to make my own. I'm not much of a graphics artist, but I think I did a pretty decent job.

What this does is it replaces your Windows start button/orb, with an orb containing the color and cutie mark of one of 33 different ponies, the list is below:
Pack 1:
- Applejack
- Big Macintosh
- Cheerilee
- Derpy Hooves
- Time Turner (Doctor Whooves)
- Fluttershy
- Lyra Heartstrings
- Octavia
- Pinkie Pie
- Princess Celestia
- Princess Luna
- Rainbow Dash
- Rarity
- Trixie
- Twilight Sparkle
- Vinyl Scratch (DJ Pon-3)

Pack 2:
- Berry Punch
- Braeburn
- Caramel
- Cutie Mark Crusader (Logo)
- Daring Do
- Golden Harvest (Carrot Top)
- Granny Smith
- Minuette (Colgate)
- Princess Cadance
- Queen Chrysalis
- Roseluck
- Shadowbolt
- Shining Armor
- Spitfire
- Sweetie Drops (Bon-Bon)
- Wonderbolt (Female)
- Wonderbolt (Male)

And in case you lose it, I also included the default Windows orb should you choose to go back (but why would you want to do that?).

--------------------

Anyways, as far as installation goes:

Step 0:
This pack is for Windows 7. However, thanks to :iconserindo: pointing it out, you can actually use this one Windows 8 if you use Classic Shell, which apparently allows you to make your Windows 8 experience more like that of Windows 7. Thanks for the heads up!

Step 1:
Download the Windows 7 Start Orb Changer here:
www.door2windows.com/windows-7…

Step 2:
Unzip and run the program, and click the "Change" button, which should open up a folder view prompt box.

Step 3:
Drag your desired (or all) pony start orb into the prompt box, select the one you wish to use, and click "Open".

Step 4:
Your screen should refresh, and congrats: your desktop is now 20% cooler!

P.S. For those of you who downloaded this from the Equestria Digital pack:
The start buttons in there are old, and don't contain all the ones in the official pack here (only 16 vs 33). In addition, the program that they distribute causes the buttons to render incorrectly. Be sure to use the one I link above for the best results.

The credits for the cutie marks used:

- Caramel

- Cutie Mark Crusader (Logo)
- Derpy Hooves
- Doctor Whooves

- Lyra
- Minuette (Colgate)
- Octavia
- Princess Celestia
- Princess Luna
- Roseluck
- Shadowbolt
- Sweetie Drops (Bon-Bon)
- Trixie

SWFlash - mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Cutie_mark/…
- Applejack
- Fluttershy
- Pinkie Pie
- Rarity
- Twilight Sparkle

Yenshin - :iconyenshin:
- Queen Chrysalis (cut from here: yenshin.deviantart.com/art/Chr… )

Jessicat0 - :iconjessicat0:
- Spitfire

ZuTheSkunk - :iconzutheskunk:
- Daring Do
- Shining Armor

Icaron - :iconicaron:
- Princess Cadance

The-Smiling-Pony - :iconthe-smiling-pony:
- Braeburn
- Granny Smith

--------------------

This is the complete set of 33 (both packs at 16 each, plus Queen Chrysalis as a bonus). Rather than having them uploaded separately, it made more sense to pack them both together. Not all of the start buttons are shown in the preview above obviously, so some you'll just have to check out for yourself!

Enjoy!

Hey, I'm not sure if this is meant to be but when I place the bmp's in, some of them have a solid haze around them instead of a fading glow. it looks really out of place and its visible too when I preview the bmps directly from a folder. Only some have this effect such as the main 6, Derpy and Celestia to name a few. seems like only those from the first pack.  Bunny Emoji-68 (Bouncy) [V4]

Are you using the program I listed, or a different one (such as the one from the Equestria Digital pack)?

The program shipped with the Equestria Digital pack, for example, messed with the icons. I've never had an issue with the one I linked in the description.

Let me know if that helps or not =)

Thankyou. I went to it before but my security said it had a virus and the download on the page added a extra file as opposed to the program. but I contacted the admin and he said to click on direct download link on the thankyou page which my security is happy with. < in case anyone else is having the same problem.

May I request permission to use this in a PonyOS? Linux based, and these would be perfect.

If you can find a way to make them work for your purposes, then go for it =)

Out of curiosity though, what do you plan on using them for in PonyOS?

Not so long as I can't figure out why the new ones I've made don't work... Without Windows 7, it's become a hard thing to trouble shoot =S If I ever figure out why though, I'd add that too the list and be sure to let you know!
