    Hi Rdorrance:

    I noticed that the default for CAPTIONWIDTH sits at -330. I've tried -220 and 120 with no change whatsoever. Did you use the WindowsMetrics key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_DEFAULT?

    I'd be interested in what you tried. This sounds quite hopeful.

    In the meantime, I tried appiying the value -250 and even -270 to the CAPTIONWIDTH string, but no go. CAPTIONHEIGHT does register height changes, but not width. I'll try Windows Style Builder and see where I get. If anyone can chime in and be of assistance, I really appreciate it.

    Hmmmmm - it seems that doesn't work. Style Builder cannot apply the themes (and I used it successfully the same way in Vista). Oh well.

    Again, If anyone has some insight, I would tremendously appreciate it. I simply want to make the close button more square shaped like XP, but not rectangular.
