Windows 7: Thumbnail preview 'close X': Make it bigger?

Thumbnail preview 'close X': Make it bigger?

Although the ability to shut open windows in thumbnail previews by pressing little red X is good. A lot of the time it takes 2-3 tries to hit the little X because of its size. I'd like it to be bigger so is there a quick registry fix to make this possible? thx

Not sure if there's a regedit for that... but even better: if you have a middle mouse button (a.k.a. "scroll wheel click") you can click it while hovering the cursor anywhere on the thumbnail!
