    Windows Borders (Did You Like Them?)


    Well, here's some code for a theme that brings borders back, plus a host of other redeeming elements.
    I've been testing it for a couple hours, there doesn't seem to be any dire repercussions so far. It's quite nice.
    Thanks to rdwray over at W8F for posting this!

    Try it yourself, just copy the code and save it in Notepad as a .theme file then apply it. You can re-adjust colors and other elements after.

    Yea windows boarder are missed
    They ultimately for me showed where the bottom of the page was because allot of third party utilities... opened full height ignoring the taskbar completely NVidia experience is a good example which completely ignores the taskbar.

    Meaning Next or Apply/ Okay were out of sight,
    That's another thing I'm not liking in 10 the lack of apply and or save changes buttons in just about every settings page.
    And the lack of prompt that you need to restart for changes to be applied.

Does anyone like the colored borders in W8.1 and the option to change their color? I do and notice W10 does not have that option. Do you think the RTM will bring that back? Thank you.
