I finally gave Win8 a try again, needless to say, the pain was the same. I tested a couple start menus, but Classic Shell was it for me. But getting some nice buttons for the start was a bit of a chore. I found a few, then more that had no transparency and again Win8 let me down. SO I found Paint.net and went to work with modifying and making some new ones. This post is to share some of those, If you see one of your own work here, please claim your credit. Some titles were left intact when I downloaded and some were not. But for me, I made a set of Trekkie buttons, who doesn't love those. Three at a time, so hopefully I can get more shared




It is my hope that these will be handy for everyone, and in kind, you will all share back your goodies. Thanks to the coders at ClassicShell for the software and to all of the authors named and unnamed who have posted these images.

The buttons here have transparency but the forum software only shows PNGs correctly. 32-bit BMPs (24-bit with 8-bit alpha transparency) are not shown correctly by the forum software, they show with a black background. However they work just fine in Classic Start Menu.
