Do you feel bore with your Windows Start Button Logo ? or maybe you just want to change its logo ? If you have tried WinBoost 2000 Gold Software or others software that have some function, you can change the "Start" text with your own text. Its look better than every day you see the "Start" text.

But, wait..Your own text is limited up to 5 characters, and you can't change your text properties, for example font name, style, color, etc. You can't change your Start Button face color too.

But with Start Toys, you can make your Start Button looks better. With Start Toys, you can change the Start Button properties! You can change the "Start" text with your own text, and you can change its color, style and font name. Start Toys can also change the Start Button Color, so your Start Button looks cool. I think this is an incredible program !

This program is Freeware, so you can use with no restrictions, no money to buy this (but if you want to, I'm very glad, Thanks), so feel free to use this program.
