    Is it possible to change window border thickness?


    I am not liking the very thin black window borders, when I open a lot of windows it can be hard to tell where one ends and another begins.
    Is there any way that you can increase the thickness of the window outline?

    Hello Silverz, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you could do OPTION ONE below to be able to change the color of window borders and title bars. The side effect of it is wider borders.

    It worked great for the window borders, exactly what I needed.

    There is one major problem however, it also seems to have changed the text color of open windows in the taskbar to black and this makes it almost impossible to read against the dark colored taskbar which windows are currently open.

    here is what I mean...
    (probably have to enlarge that to see)

    Is there any easy way to edit the theme and simply turn the text back white?

    Possibly, but I don't know which setting is for that yet. Changing your theme to another theme will undo this for you.

    You might also see if this below may work. I haven't tested it in Windows 10 yet though.

    Ok, I'll have to stick to the default for now, unless that windows 8 method works.

    Thanks for the help!

    No luck with the windows 8 method. The registry settings are there but seem to have no effect when altered.

    Also with this, keep sending feedback to Windows team. Maybe they will get it through their thick skulls that like in previous versions Vista/7/8 border thickness and active/inactive colors were important for people to tell the difference between an active and inactive Window. By removing such customization options. Tell your friends to upscore your feedback too the more the better. Maybe they will realize their ignorance.

    The missing option to change the border thickness is really annoying, especially on a high DPI screen.

    I just left some feedback about this and I can only hope that a workaround will be found soon before MS fixes it. It seems like a typical case of improving the looks at the cost of usability.

    Was that feedback left at answers.microsoft.com, or at connect.microsoft.com? Could you give us a link, so we can upvote / comment there? Thanks...
