Windows 7: Windows 7 window frame isn't displaying correctly.

Windows 7 window frame isn't displaying correctly.

Hi, I've used seven forums tutorials and guides for long but this time I'm having a problem that I can't fix with my throughout Google skills.

I've been using a custom theme for a couple of months now but it has been bugging me for a while this display error, the theme is by default set on transparent but I wanted it in black color so I changed it in the Window Color setting in the Personalization window but its turns out like this when I want it to keep right angles. As you can see there is a slight gray line with a right corner overlapping the black color of the window.

It doesn't matter if it won't keep the aero transparency, I only want to keep the right angle corners with black color.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

I see the checkmark saying that this is solved did you get it figured out?

By looking at your screen shot I can tell the theme maker did not get the corners of the frame fully colored.

Yes, I got it fixed after a long time editing in Windows Style Builder. The image for the frames was transparent and so when I was using the aero colors to change color the windows would still keep the default appearance.
