Win 7 x64

Thanks OP @swarfega

Nice feature indeed, but I need something a little different. In the attachments you see a screen showing win7 explorer and MS Outlook 2010. I've shown with arrows for which borders I want to increase the thickness. It's those separation borders inside the window that I want to make thicker. Border padding addresses only the outer frame and I want something for the inner frames, cos some of them are so annoying and with a fast mouse it's a paint to hit them. I'd like to increase the thickness of those inner boarders, and not only for explorer windows but if psbl for other 3rd party apps (though that might be too much to ask for but too late, I already did it :) ) So pls help, anybody .. somebody! :)
