Yes, you open res hacker> open explorer.exe> find "bitmap" > find "143" click on 1033 and there it is. Now just click on action>save [bitmap : 143 : 1033]... Then edit it in paint (must be edited in paint). When you edited it go to action>replace bitmap...
P.S. Notice the black background. Black is transparent.

Then edit it in paint (must be edited in paint)

Hi Sandman,

Just wanted to say what a great tutorial. Just about all the start button tutorials I've ever seen instruct the user to rename the explorer.exe file before saving it. But as I'm sure you probably already know, this provokes an issue with the start menu search function.

For this reason I have always saved my explorer.exe file in the inf folder. But creating the new "mod" folder is a great idea. Thats how I'll do mine from now on.

I will say though, that the bitmap does not have to be edited in Paint. I always do mine in Photoshop. People do have issues with transparency though.

Thankyou for the tut...I've learned something new today. :-)
