    Re: start menu changes

    Yes you can change the width of the border by increasing the content Margins, that will not make the overall menu width larger but it will move the content over and give you the room to increase it.

    You will need to change the margin here Start Menu > Panels > Basic > ProgramsList > ContentMargins:Margins

    The numbers in this field represent the amount of pixels from the edge of the image that the content will start in, so for example if you have it set to 5, 5, 5, 5 (Left, Right, Top, Bottom) that means the content will be 5 pixels in from the left, 5 pixels in from the right, 5 pixels in from the top and 5 pixels in from the bottom, that would mean you could have a border 5 pixels in width all the way around in the programs list.

    To increase the border and all the overall Start menu width you have to adjust the Default Panel Size and that needs to be done for all of the images you want to change, for example for you to change the width of just the all programs list you will need to change the default aspect size in Start Menu > Panels > Basic > ProgramsList and Start Menu > Panels > Basic > ProgramsListExtended, then property value for the aspect size it a bit of a strange one and some values will give undesired results and it is something you will need to play with, the numbers on my programs list are 0, 0, 261, 383 ( n/a, n/a, Pixel Width, Pixel Height) and I just changed it to to 0, 0, 300, 383 and that increased just the width of the programs list to 300 pixels.

    Before


    After


    I hope this helps

    I just edit the msstyles and uncheck Start Menu > Panels > Basic > UserPane > UserPicture:Bool

    The theme is my Concept one but with a new start menu and some other changes that I did for a friend to put in a Custom OS he was making.

    I will release that theme at a later date
