Change Start Button Text

Start Button ToolTip Text Changer will allow you to change the tooltip text of your Start Button or Orb in Windows 7. It has been tested on Windows 7, 32-bit and 64-bit.

Once you have downloaded the file, unzip the contents and click on SBTTC.exe to run the tool.

On loading, it will search your Windows Directory for certain system files. You will see a message: Please wait. Locating files that will need to be modified.

Once done, you are free to replace the default text ‘Start‘, with any text of your choice, in the text-box. You can replace it with your name or simply choose something witty. I have chosen to replace it with ‘Go easy with the click’.

Once you have written what you want, click on Apply.

A black CMD window will open and close. Do not close this window on your own. A message: Double checking changes. Please wait, will be displayed.

The application will remain grayed-out.

Once the process is completed, you will be able to click on the Close button. Click Close and then restart your computer.

You will see your that your Start Button Text has been changed! To restore the default ‘Start’ text, simply click on Restore. To remove the tooltip completely, check on Disabled.
