Tweak Window Border Padding

Why would you want to increase or decrease the size of the border padding for any window you open? I have no idea but here is the regedit tweak you need to do it:

  • Open Regedit
  • Navigate here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
  • Right click on PaddedBorderWidth and click Modify
  • You will see this;

You can set the border between 0 (no border) and 300 (large border). Personally I have no idea why you would want a border of 300, maybe you could set it on you friends computers to annoy them! You just need to reboot your machine and you will see that you have a new border size.
