    I saw few weeks back on the net a way to adjust windows border size without installing any tools or messing with registry, unfortunately I forgot to save the site, now I can't find it any longer. Any one knows where in Windows 8.1 I can adjust the border size?

    Thanks for your reply, but this method is either using Tiny Windows Border tool or registry edit, the article that I saw was using neither one, I believe it just changed some settings in Control Panel (I couldn't be sure, I had problem with Win 8.1 activation and installed Win & apps so many times that I'm not even sure what I did or saw o_O.

    I haven't seen any possibility to do this in Windows 8/8.1 via control panel. It's gone in Windows 8/8.1 (unlike Windows 7).

    By the way: "Tiny Windows Border" does nothing else then change the registry entry. After using "Tiny Windows Border" you can delete it. So no further background program or service is running.

    Thanks for your reply, I'll use TWB if there's no other alternative, but I'm pretty sure that I saw a way to do it without any registry edit or tools, too bad that I did not write down the link :weeping:
