Change Text on XP Start Button


Step 1 - Modify Explorer.exe File

In order to make the changes, the file explorer.exe located at C:\Windows needs to be edited. Since explorer.exe is a binary file it requires a special editor. For purposes of this article I have used Resource Hacker. Resource HackerTM is a freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract resources in 32bit windows executables and resource files (*.res). It incorporates an internal resource script compiler and decompiler and works on Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems.

The first step is to make backup copy of the file explorer.exe located at c:\windows\explorer. Place it in a folder somewhere on your hard drive where it will be safe. Start Resource hacker and open explorer.exe located at c:\windows\explorer.exe

The category we are going to be using is "string Table". Expand it by clicking the plus sign then navigate down to expand string 37 followed by highlight 1033. If you are using the Classic Layout rather that the XP Layout, use number 38. The right hand pane will display the stringtable. We're going to modify item 578, currently showing the word "start" just as it displays on the current Start button.

There is no magic here. Just double click on the word "start" so that it's highlighted, making sure the quotation marks are not part of the highlight. They remain in place, surrounding the new text that you'll type. Go ahead and type your new entry. In my case I used Click Me!

You'll notice that after the new text string has been entered the Compile Script button that was grayed out is now active. I won't get into what's involved in compiling a script, but suffice it to say it's going to make this exercise worthwhile. Click Compile Script and then save the altered file using the save us command on the File Menu. Do not use the Save As command and choose a name for the file. Save the newly named file to C:\Windows.

Step 2 - Modify the Registry

! ! !make a backup of your registry before making changes! ! !

Now that the modified explorer.exe has been created it's necessary to modify the registry so the file will be recognized when the user logs on to the system. If you don't know how to access the registry I'm not sure this article is for you, but just in case it's a temporary memory lapse, go to start (soon to be something else) Run and type regedit in the open field.Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon

In the right pane, double click the "shell" entry to open the Edit String dialog box. In the value data: line, enter the name that was used to save the modified explorer.exe file. Click OK.

Close Registry Editor and either log off the system and log back in, reboot the entire system if that's your preference. If all went as planned you should see your new Start button with the revised text.[/b]

Good luck!

Change xp bootscreen resolution


You can not change the bootscreen resolution. The bootscreen has to be 640x480 px and 16 colors. Nothing else will work.

There is a great video about how to change your boot and logon screen in Windows XP. Look here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

How can i change text of Start Button?


You Need to Modify "Explorer.exe File" To make the changes you need to locate and edit the file "explorer.exe" it's located at C:Windows. The file "Explorer.exe" is a binary file, so you will need special editor (Resource Hacker) will do. Resource Hacker is a good freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract resources in 32bit Windows executables and resource files. First Backup "explorer.exe" located at C:\Windows\explorer. You can place it in a special folder or save it to disk. You can also copy and change the file name to "explorerB.exe" (the B is for backup), then you can edit "explorer.exe".

2. Resource Hacker: In Resource Hacker the category will be using is String Table. You need to expand it by clicking on the plus sigh, then navigate down and expand string 37 followed by 1033, (For Classic Layout use number 38). On the right hand pane look for item 578 it show the word "start" this is what we are going to modify.

3. Edit start: To edit the word "start' you just double click on start so that it's highlighted, don't highlight the quotation marks on the sides of start, "start" NOT "start". The new text go's in between the quotation marks, like this "new" remember don't delete the quotation marks. So that it looks like this "new" replace new with your text. This is the old start text "start" delete start text "", inter your text "new" easy right!

4. Compile Script button: Now that you have changed the start text you need to click on the Compile Script button. After you have clicked on the Compile Script button you need to use the Save As command on the File Menu to save the altered file and give it a name. A good file name "explorernew.exe" or make your own. Don't use the Save command use the Save As commaned! Save the newly named file to the C:\Windows.

5. Modify the Registry: Now it's time to modify the registry so that your modified explorer.exe file that you created will be recognized when the user logs on your system. Go to the Start button click on it, then go to Run click on it, type regedit in the Open: field. Now Navigate download the list to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" click on the plus, to SOFTWARE, to Microsoft, to windows NT, to CurrentVersion, to Winlogon. The full string: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon
Look on the right pane for Shell, double click on Shell entry to open the Edit String dialog box. In the Value date: line enter the name that your used to save the modified explorer.exe file. click on OK.
Now close Registry Editor and exit Windows or log off your system, and then log back on. Now if the computer gods are happy and all went as planned you should see the new Start button with your cool text on it. Remember the force is with you!
