Center Titlebar Text

Is it possible to (without 3rd party software that runs in the background) center the title bar text in Windows 7 x64. (By that I mean the text like when you open notepad, it says "Untitled - Notepad". I want it centered.)

I'm not really sure what you are asking but here goes.
When you are typing in note pad just hit the space bar until the cursor is where you want the title to start. Type in the title and hit enter.

Yes that is what I'm talking about. And not just in notepad, but any program. That was just an example.

I searched the net and this is what I found :Move titlebar text to center by ~patrickgs on deviantART

But I don't think it would work in Win7, actually this is for Vista only.

Like I said, not sure what you are asking.
I know of no way of doing such thing but their are others here wiser than me that might help.
Maybe Niceguy could give you a hand on your request.

Try Windows 8 Developer Preview - you'll be pleased to see they've gone for centred text in the title bars.
