    Tiny Windows Borders

    Tiny Windows Borders allows you to change szie of huge windows borders in Windows 8 RTM/RP.

    It was created for those who prefer tiny windows borders, because Microsoft has removed user interface for appearance.

    Haven't tried this tool personally, but I found before this tool was created that it's as simple as changing a single registry value

    HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\PaddedBorderWidth.

    IIRC, Set the value to 0 to eliminate the padding.

    Yes, that is correct.

    For those that may be new or are not familiar,,,
    Paste the following to a Text file from notepad and save it, change txt to reg, then double click it and except the changes.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]
    The tool listed in op, works and is nice for those that do not want to edit the registry this way or manually.

    I have endorsed "Tiny Windows Borders" tool.

    Also have endorsed "Close Threshold for Metro Apps"

Hi All, I am not sure if this a theme issue, but as the attached screenshot (windows 8 theme.png), the borders around all my windows look 'classic'. The second screenshot is what I expected the windows to look like (win8_ribbon_021.jpg). Is this normal of am I missing something? Thanks.
