That method would work, but the OP already stated explicitly that he does not want to modify Windows Explorer, which is probably a good idea. He wants to implement that change in his visual style.

Just joined up, first post, and you start with Hey geeks?

 

I don't see the problem, everyone is a geek, car geeks, sports geeks, tech geeks, that's how I see it, you shouldn't view it as a negative term, because it's not.

mmm...good point. Trying another theme like you suggested might be in his best interest.

You can use Orb changer and replace it with small blank png file.

 

 

It works.

It's been a long time since I last edited an XP visual style, but I think there's a setting to change the positioning of the Windows flag. You'd need to set the position so that it's outside of the start button, so that it's invisible.

Icg was right. You have to set the Start Button's left content margin to a minus value within Style Builder/through hex editing to move the logo off of the screen.

 

Thank you very much <3
