    Win 8.1 - Center Start Orb?


    Hey folks,

    is there by any chance already a possibility to center the start orb on the task bar?

    thanks in advance.

    cheers

    If you are looking to just use the Start Orb to gain easy access to the Metro screen (from a more convenient location) , then this may work for you:

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for your efforts, but that's not what i was looking for.

    i was hoping to find some way to move the orb around on the task bar (and in the end have it centered in the middle of it), to align the other shortcuts to the left and right of it.

    I knew exactly what you were looking for but hang in there and I'm sure someone will be along shortly to show you how to do that. Sorry I couldn't help.
