Windows 7: Huge navigation buttons when using custom DPI.

Huge navigation buttons when using custom DPI.

Hi. I'm using registry-tweaked custom DPI 86 (Windows would show it as 90%).
It's wonderful, but it has one major downside. It's using the biggest possible navigation buttons. Now, I tried playing with Win 7 NBC, and even tried messing with explorerframe.dll, nothing works. Whole system acts like it's not loading navigation buttons from explorerframe.dll but from another, hidden source.

I know that such DPI is not supported but am I the only one who thinks that microsoft made every button and bar too freaking big ? I'm pretty much lost here, I hope someone helps. Thanks.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
The only place the navigations buttons come from our explorerframe.dll in C:\Windows\System32 and if you are using 64-bit it would be in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64
There are three different sizes of buttons in their depending on your DPI settings, you may have to edit all three sizes to get it to show correctly.
