good tip on size 0

also, if you want some sort of button behavior, the image on the bottom 1/3 of your .png file (your Pressed state) should be nudged a few pixels down & to the left, or whatever direction you think looks like a button push

16x16 is pretty small.. you would need to set the size limit to 16x16.. i really think its too small, you may have found the wrong icon file.. try looking for a bigger one. you should have at least a 64x64, imo.. 128x128 is even better.. but you can set any icon you want to any size you want, from a...

better to just set Shift+Click to equal regular Windows Menu, or Shift +Click for Classic Shell if you use the regular one more often

after shift-clicking you can do anything you want to in the regular start menu

If you are looking for the Properties, you can just shift+right-click the Start button
