Windows 7: Any way to get rid of window border transition?

Any way to get rid of window border transition?

This is what I mean :

I have seen the tool to allow 100% transparency which would I guess solve this problem. However, I am using the aero theme without the transparency turned on and can't use the tool mentioned above.

Your help is appreciated.

edit: What purpose do you think this serves by the way? Just curious to what the designers were thinking (not saying this in a bad way)

Hello Dipal,

You could use the tutorial below to make the border width thinner if you like.

Hope this helps some,

Welcome to the Seven Forums
If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you. Using Windows Style Builder.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.
This will be making a custom theme so you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.

Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
All I need from you would be a name to call the custom theme and I can post it here for you. Let me know if you would like me to do it.
Here is a screenshot of it.

Thanks for that info guys. I am going to ask the author of the skin for permission and will pass it on here if he says yes. Otherwise I guess I learnt something here and will just bear with it for a while.

Modify the Window Border Width
