Is there a way to change the bottom spacing of the title bar?

It looks like this.





But I want it to look like this.



Is there anyway to change that specifically? Just the title bar height?

Hello Pulagatha, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could open the Advanced Appearance settings, and change the "Size" of the Active Title Bar item to change it's height.

I need to adjust the height specifically. I've tried Appearance Settings. That didn't work.

The Active Title Bar item does change the height of title bars. At least for me it does.

Try adjusting the Inactive Title Bar item as well.

If still not what you need, then you might see if adjusting the size up or down for the Caption Buttons item instead may give you the same affect. It will increase or decrease the size of the minimize, maximize, and close buttons that will also affect the height of the title bar.

No, I've tried tinkering with the Appearance Settings. If there is something in the Registry Editor or Shellstyle.dll that might work it might be something I haven't heard of.
