Windows 7: Adjust Window Controls

Adjust Window Controls

In XP there was a control panel applet that I could access via a right click on the desktop where I could change the characteristics of Windows Controls, like the size of the buttons in the title bar, the width of the scroll bars etc.

The same applet had sheets for the Screen Saver and display characteristics etc

Is there an equivalent in Win 7, if so where can I find it. I fear the worse - like they took it away

In Vista I'm sure the Personalize applet had an option for getting rid of Aero, its gone too.

BTW I'm not talking about the tweaks you can make in Performance Options, I found that.

thanks pjd

Hi pjd,

No. They didn't remove it.

Window Color and Appearance
1. Right-click an empty space in your desktop
2. Click 'Personalize'
3. At the bottom of the window, click 'Window Color'
4. At the bottom, click 'Advanced appearance settings..."
5. Now you should be able to edit the button sizes, the width of the scrollbars, the text size, etc.

Screensaver
1. Right-click an empty space in your desktop
2. Click 'Personalize'
3. At the bottom of the window, click 'Screensaver'
4. Choose a screensaver from the drop-down menu
5. Enter the number of minutes to display the screensaver
6. [OPTIONAL] If you want a password re-prompt on resume, tick 'On resume, display logon screen'
7. [OPTIONAL] If you want to conserve energy or maximize your PC's performance by adjusting display brightness and other settings, click 'Change power settings'
8. Click 'OK'
9. You have successfully set a screensaver for your PC

Hope this helps.

By the way, you posted this topic twice already.
