Thank you juniper7 for your kind response. I tried the wider file and it's indeed better in a horizontal taskbar, although in a vertical one it seems there's no difference. It probably requires a different kind of edit. I was hoping Classic Shell would be able to tackle this globally, for all button...

I have noticed that many (most?) of the available custom buttons, are placed very close to the edge of the taskbar/screen (button size setting is irrelevant), and it does not look very good compared to the default button position. I am not sure what causes this - I know this can be edited but it has...

Thanks a lot for your work. Agreed, the effect does look a bit unnatural outside the button. The 8.1 black box is visually much worse for me however... because it's just that: a blocky box instead of a distinct button (reminds me of 8-bit computers... but worse :P).

Nothing wrong, it's just further away from the Win key than Ctrl/Alt in my keyboard (another row and farther to the left) and pressing Shift+Win is a bit awkward. Not a big deal of course. Ctrl/Alt are adjacent to Win and you can even press Ctrl/Alt+Win together with one finger. :P
