    Everything is possible in graphic editing, yes, the flattened aero loading is the one on the cursor: Attachment 9076
    But where do you see the little metro loading circle animation? Sorry I rarely use apps.
    To use that one you'll need to know where the files are, like for example the cursors are in c:\Window\Cursors, or at least export the desired animation somehow.

    That.
    Thanks. Ah that one! Indeed, it's all over the place. But you're right it looks good as animation.

    We'll just need to find where it's located or create it from scratch.

    Edit:
    This site has what we need: Preloaders.net - windows 8 loading animation
    You can choose colors, generate gif or animated png and your good to go (for cursor editing). I'll see what I can do.

    Is it just me or does anyone else find all the start screens shown in this thread bloody awful?
    I'm still trying to decide if i'm going to upgrade my main pc to win8. It has 3 x 27" screens with some nice wallpapers that stretches across all 3, i really don't fancy the so far bloody awful start screen on one of them. Why the hell can't i customise the size of the icons to WHAT I WANT NOT WHAT MICROSOFT SAYS I WANT.
