Remove pixels from border in Visual Style


Recommended Posts



These are the steps that I’ve used successfully in the past to change the pixel settings through Registry Editor:


  1. From Registry Editor, locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
  2. Notice in the right-side pane that there are 2 Strings called BorderWidth and PaddedBorderWidth.  These are the strings that you need to edit in order to change the size of your borders.
  3. Double click on each string and set the value of both strings to 0.
  4. Close Registry Editor and restart your computer for the settings to take effect.


Hope this helps!
