Have you installed the latest Windows 8 operating system and looking for a way to change the default Metro Start button? My WDP Start Button is the ideal tool to replace the default Windows 8 Start button with custom one.

Change Windows 8 Start Button

My WDP Start Button is a portable utility to change the default Metro Start with your own picture.

How to use My WDP Start Button to change Windows 8 Start button:

Step 1: Download My WDP Start Button tool from here. Launch the tool with admin rights.

Step 2: Click on the big picture (the main image) to change the Start button with an image composed of 3 orbs. Or, click on a small picture to select a single picture as Start button. Please note that the picture file should be in PNG or Bitmap (32-bit) format.

The tool will apply the Start button and then automatically restarts the explorer process for you. Wait for a few seconds to see the new Start button. Please note that the tool may take a few seconds to minutes to restart the Explorer. You might see a blank screen while applying the new Start button. On our testing PC, it took 135 seconds to restart Windows Explorer.

Please note that the tool doesn’t offer an option to revert to the default Start button. So, don’t forget to create a system restore point before applying the new Start button. Your anti-virus software may warn you against this software. Worry not! It’s just a false positive.
