Windows 7: Removing title bar from windows

Removing title bar from windows

I use several Autohotkey scripts to drag, resize and close windows, so I have no need for the window's title bars any more. I've been trying to find a way to get rid of them completely but nothing really worked so far and I'm at my wits' end.

This is how it currently looks, this is how I want it to look, this is the best I could achieve by editing the .png file in .msstyle\STREAM\971\0. I use this theme and already contacted the author, unfortunately he did not reply.

Changing the size values via Windows Style Builder (Windows and Caption Buttons/Aero/Dwm WIndow/Frames/Normal/Top) did not help either.

Google just brought up an Autohotkey script which lets you toggle title bars manually for each separate window. And several tips saying just to press F11.

Do you have any idea if this can actually by done?

Try going to Windows Style Builder fourms and ask, if it can be done they will know how VistaStyleBuilder - Index
