Is it possible to centre the title bar text, like in Windows 8/8.1, using WSB?

Also, is there a way to increase the size of the start button like it was in 8.1?  I'm currently using Open-Shell and a custom start button image to do this, but was wondering if it's possible using WSB.  All the other icons on the taskbar can be made larger using 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, so I'm wondering if something similar can be done with the start button.

Will try again later.  I'm on 2019 LTSC, but I'm guessing that shouldn't matter?

What about the start button thing?  Possible?

I don't know if it makes any difference that you are running the 2019 LTSC.

You can manipulate or replace the start button images like any other image.

In your case the images are probably still at Unknown > TaskbarPearl

But if you are Using Grim's custom data they have been moved to Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero > Start Button

I'm a noob at this stuff...

I'm using the same build of the program that I used on Windows 8.  Can you link me to the best one for 10?

You can try the WSB that's attached.

It's what I use. I'm on Windows 10 build 1909

Okay, I'm using that now.

Still getting nothing.  The text is still left-aligned and when I replace the start button image, it doesn't change when I apply the theme...

It just always loads up the default Windows 10 theme (the blue one).  I really don't know what I'm doing wrong here; I never had issues like this on Windows 8.1.

Hahaha...  oh dear.  I had forgotten to actually install UxStyle.

I've got the text centered now.  Well, on ribbon windows anyway, but I'm pretty sure I know how to make it work on all windows.

Start button has definitely changed but it's gotten smaller, even though I put a larger image in.  Really weird.  Do you have any idea how to fix this?  For reference, the original image found in Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Aero > Start Button > Large Icons Start Button is 20x20px (for 96 dpi).  I imported the attached image and it just made the button smaller.  Any thoughts?

For some reason I don't understand I can change the Small Icons Start Button:



but not the large one.

Maybe somebody else can explain why this is happening Huh?

I hope so.  This is the last major tweak I want to make to Windows 10.

Hi 3am

on my rigs ( builds 1903 & 1909 )  , custom start button I can make it work like that:



with big size taskbar icons , I tested some and I only have to set the new pic here for your issue ( without edit other dpi )

TaskbarPearl > <2>Minimal dpi :96 ( true size/ vertical layout / imageselectype: dpi / bool transparent checked)

You may have to restart explorer.exe to see change

Hope it helps

Tried editing it there.  Still isn't working.  It just makes the start button smaller (well, the flag icon part of it).

Really don't know what I'm missing here.  Can you please upload a mystyles file with the LARGE start button image replaced by the attached image?  Just to see if I'm doing something wrong.

As I said to 3am there was the place to edit in vsb . I made other test to be sure and it works fine on my comp .

For large start button I only had to change the same place I talked before. and refresh your explorer.exe when testing

Now I don't see how I could be clearer as I used your white pic for the same result on large icon. ....

You can also try with already made themes ( ie Mr Grim HUD evolution etc )

Lol, ignore me...  I've got it working now.  Thanks so much for all of your help.

For some reason, if you JUST edit the large start button one, it doesn't work.  You need to edit the small one too.  Really weird, but I'm happy with it now.

Nice find Smiley

Doubly weird is that I have to have the SAME image for both large and small for the big one to register at all. During testing anyway.

Yeah, I don't get it.  The problem is that if you switch to small taskbar buttons after doing this, it looks like the screenshot you posted earlier in the thread.  I never use that anyway, so I can ignore it.

Do you know how to fix this other issue I'm having?  When applying a custom theme, Firefox has some weird graphical issues on certain windows, such as the one attached.  The text on the buttons is white, when it should be black.  There are other minor issues here, too.

The same thing happened on Windows 8, but was fixable by moving three specific dll files into the Firefox directory.  This fix only caused glitches on 10 (like Firefox refusing to close, or opening itself many times whenever I tried to launch it).

Any thoughts?

What the hell?  I installed the latest .NET Framework (4.8) and now the custom theme doesn't work?

Well, I finally did get it working again.  Not sure how, but it did.

But then I found an even better solution.  The program "StartIsBack" has an option to increase the size of icons on the taskbar to a range of sizes, including the one I wanted.  So I just purchased that.

Just posting this in case anyone else wanted the large start button and wanted an easier way to achieve it in W10.
