There is an interactive version of this (by me) here (remove all spaces in the URL!): /portal/view/353610

This is a hack to change the word "Start" on your Windows XP computer to something else.
(EDIT!: I fixed the audio sync error!)

You can get Resource Hacker here: ourcehacker/
You can get Process Explorer here: technet/sysinternals/util ities/ProcessExplorer.msp x

(NG puts spaces into URLs, so if the URLs don't work, look for and remove spaces.)

Disclaimer!!: This hack requires you to change a file that comes with your computer and is a CRITICAL component for the proper operation of your computer! Please attempt at your own risk, I do not offer any warranty of any kind. If you are secure in your abilities to hack a CRITICAL component of your computer, please try this, its neat! It adds some extra personality to your computer!

Note: Please submit this to the Windows Collection please! Thankies! :-D

Now all we need is a way to change Vista's start.

Is there a way to change Vista's start menu button? If so, please make a video showing how!

jpoke89 responds:

I haven't tried. This video was made prior to Vista's real release. Vista's start button does not have text, so you can't add text.
