Windows 7: Borders Around Windows

08 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

The width of the borders may be adjustable with a registry setting, but I don't think you can totaly get rid of them. And if you do find a way, you would not be able to resize any windows ever again (other that full screen/normal/minimized). Are you sure that's ok?

Well yes, of course! Run all your applications maximised!

Ok, slightly facetious answer (though it does work!) Borders are set within the visual style and can be made to apparently disappear by simply using a graphic which makes them identical to the rest of the window. But, as the seal says, there's nothing to be gained and everything to be lost by removing them altogether as they're what the sizing handles respond to.
