Browse and select the image which you want to display as the new start button. The app will automatically resize the image for you so it is not necessary for the image to be of specific dimensions.

Note that a start orb bitmap made for Windows 7 won't work here. Windows 7 start orb bitmaps contain images for the default, hover and pressed state in one image but in Windows 8.1, the default and hover/pressed images are stored separately.

If you want to convert a Windows 7 start orb for use in Windows 8.1, use: Windows 7 To Windows 8.1 Start Button Converter
