Minimize & Maximize button problem - overlapping

This is a problem that occurs with any theme I try - the normal windows maximize, minimize, close overlap the custom ones. Screenshot by Lightshot

( The pictured theme is Placebo Pure Morning. )

Hi cgx, welcome to SevenForums!

Could you tell us what DPI seting are you using? What happens if you change it to 100%?

I think speedgamer01 has got the right idea some theme makers will not do the other sizes when it comes to editing the .msstyles them buttons come in four different sizes.

Then they will work just fine. But I really am looking for a way to be able to use 125%, since everything is too small for my eyesight. I am sitting about 4 feet away from my monitor ( in a bed. )

You could ask the maker to make some changes or try a different theme, or you could purchase Window Style Builder and edit the .msstyles.
