Welcome to Seven Forums Wiggy boy. It may be that you can change either of the settings Active window border or (more likely if I am interpreting your picture correctly) Border padding

Right click desktop> Personalize> Window Color at bottom> Advanced appearance settings> Item dropdown>

Note original settings should you want to set it back.

I think running the System File Checker will also set it back to original, but it will also reset any other theme modifications you have made.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Always best to make one change at a time, and see if you like the effect before making more.

Is there any way that I can put a coloured border around a font using Word or Publisher 2007 please? I am sure there was some way I could do this in earlier versions of Word without using Wordart.
