    Windows 7 Start Menu

    Running Windows 7 Home Premium.

    My start menu doesn't look like your start menu ! Most of it is the same but mine does not have the bar at the bottom showing the Orb symbol. The orb is in the programmes menu as a symbol for the Windows Media Centre.

    Ian,

    Are you talking about your Start Menu looking like this:

    This is correct. The Start Orb is part of the Task Bar and is what you click to open the Start Menu so I guess it would be considered a part of the Start Menu as well. If this is not what you are talking about, please post a screen shot so we can see what you are discussing. Thanks.

    The Windows Media Center orb icon is green. The default Start Menu orb icon is blue.

    @Septuagent, Roderunner has enabled the Windows Classic Theme -

    If yours looks similar, then if you right click the desktop, select Personalize, scroll down and change to Windows 7 Aero, or Windows 7 Basic then you'll get something more like you probably want.
