- 4 columns x 5 rows portrait setup, icons titles on 3 lines, 120 pixels wide...

How to install the 4x5 / 6x3 square Start menu :

1) Copy the modified shell32.exe matching your Windows Mobile build from Ultrashot's RAR archive ;

2) Install the CAB from the link at the bottom of this post. Destination doesn't matter, as target folder is hardcoded.

Cheers, and many thanks to Ultrashot.

Thank you for that cab. I prefer larger icons with less space between them so I modified your portrait cpr file to get 96 x 96 pixels icons and modified your cab. See attached screen cap, cab and cpr file.

Is there any WQVGA mod for this thing? Would like to see the start menu of my beloved Omnia i900 with squared grid of 3 or 4 rows. Or at least tell me how to edit the CPR file, I can do it myself

Thanks.

I like this very much , but now I use wm6.5 21869, because it works faster than wm6.5.x . How can this work on 21869 ?

OK...

If I choosed a smaller size, it was for different purposes :

- Homogeneous look : same size as CHT quicklink icons

- Enough room to display long icons names (3 lines in portrait !)

- Ability to display a fully showing 3x6 grid in landscape mode, with the same ability to display long icons labels (though now reduced to 2 wider lines).

Now of course, anyone can change the setting to whatever his taste... I actually spent a lot of time lining up all the items correctly, then my CPRs can be used as starting positions for any changes you want.
