User Tile Border

Q: User Tile Border

Do you know of an easy way to change the colour of the User Tile border?

A: User Tile Border

I take it you mean on the login screen? I've wanted to change that for so long, but it's picky with the transparency and such. I guess you'd need to find a way to patch authui.dll, and then reshack it. If only I knew of a good patch or hex edit or something.

Is there anyway possible to remove that Aero border that surrounds the user account icon? Can it be disabled for both the login screen and start menu?

A:Remove Aero border around user account icon

For the login screen you would need to edit the authui.dll, look at Post #23 of this thread Removing Picture Frame On Startup/Login Screen Danny has already made up a authui.dll that removes the logon picture.

To remove the user picture from the start menu have a look at these two options.

I have spent a great amount of time configuring a 56-tile Start Menu in my Microsoft Account login which does not have Admin privileges (the logon I plan to use all the time). I am now configuring another logon - with Admin privileges (a local account because one cannot have two Microsoft Account logons in the same installation). I would like to be able to copy (clone) my 56-tile Start Menu to the new account. Can it be done?

A:Can one copy a Start tile configuration to another user?

Ensure you have at least one if not two full image backups of your OS partition before trying such an operation.
As a Windows 7 user, I was able to find the desktop folder and the needed AppData information, I copied the desktop and AppData from my admin-level RollyAccount into the built-in admin account -- while in Safe Mode. If you can sniff out the desktop or tile-top directory or directories, boot into Safe Mode, you probably can copy such from one account into the other account.
It's a good idea to have at least one if not two full image backups of your OS and data partitions on a weekly or bi-monthly basis

Hi everybody. This is my first post and I thought this would be the best place to ask for help. I can't find a solution anywhere else. Here's my problem:

Yesterday I noticed that there is a red border surrounding my desktop. I didn't pay much attention to it because I wasn't using to the computer for anything at the moment except for downloading a torrent.
So this morning I woke up the computer and the border was still there, and that's when I realized that my desktop wasn't working. None of the icons work, or the Vista side folder bar thing(?).
So in summary, I strangely have this red border around my desktop, that disables my desktop.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings. I'm currently using a Windows 7 Visual Style called, TAPEK.

Tapek by =kiko11 on deviantART

It uses invisible borders, and requires disabling of the blur effect to look proper. The problem is that when I snap my windows to the grid to tile them manually, there will be spaces between the edge of the window and the edge of my screen, because of these invisible borders. I've found that I can reduce the size of these spaces by reducing the border padding, through right clicking my desktop > Personalize > Window Colour > Advanced Appearance Settings. Even at 0, the lowest border padding setting attainable through this method, some space is still visible.

My question is, how do I make the border padding even lower, in the negative values?

A:Border Padding

I am not sure if you can get a negative border padding setting, but I can explain to you what's going on with that theme.
As you can see from the screenshot you will see a light gray or shadow on the sides of the image that is your invisible border, the only way I can see to remove the gap between your open window and or screen edge would be to edit those images by adding more solid color to the outside but then you will lose your thin border (Second screenshot shows where I added some color to just the side images with the padding set a zero, The gaps you still see at the top and bottom of the window are from the top and bottom image that has not been edited yet.)
Note: There are four images for the border the top the two sides and the bottom I put the images on a white background so you could see what they look like.

How do I make a small border around an image in Illustrator CS?

A:image border

if its an image that you placed, or pasted into illustrator, i would just use the rectangle tool , and creat a vector object, with no fill , and a stroke of 1 px. then make the height and width one or two pixels larger then that of your image. Keep them on the same layer, and send the image to the back, then center your vector object ontop of your image.

if you have a path, compound path or vector object that you created in illustrator, and you have already assigned a stroke, group everything , and apply a layer effect to it.

I recently had to reboot my computer due to a virus. Everything is fine now, but for some reason when I play back my video files (which were saved on an external hard drive) there is a strange black border at the top and bottom of the frame. This border does not vanish when I go into full screen or crop with a video editor. It's just there no matter what. Before the reboot these video files (mpegs) played full screen every time. Something has changed and I don't know what or how to get rid of this border.
Also - when I take a picture scan of a video file, the result comes out completely black.

Sorry, I haven't found a way to improve the drag and click selection of files in Windows Explorer. With the entire row used for selections it does make it difficult at times. Don't know why MS changed this, but I'm not too fond of it.

Hi there.
Just updated from W7RC, where I was running both of my monitors (Benq 24" + 19") on extend desktop - had no problems at all.
I am now running W7 Ultimate (OEM), and I have the same graphics card (ATI Radeon 5770), same RAM and same CPU. I have a new motherboard and new HDDs.

I've managed to get it so that the desktop is extended the right way, however, this black border was not around last time and I can't figure out a way to get rid of it.
The settings I was able to use last time (in the monitor's menu) are no longer accessible, and Catalyst gives me no options to brute force override.

How the hell do I get rid of this black border!?

Dear God: Let me give you a list of just some of the things I must remember to be a good dog.

1 . I will not eat the cats' food before they eat it or after they throw it! up.
2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc., just because I like the way they smell.
3. The Litter Box is not a cookie jar.
4. The sofa is not a 'face towel'.
5. The garbage collector is not stealing our stuff.
6. I will not play tug-of-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.
7. Sticking my nose into someone's crotch is an unacceptable way of saying "hello".
8. I don't need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm under the coffee table.
9. I must shake the rainwater out of my fur before entering the house - not after.
10. I will not come in from outside and immediately drag my butt.
11. I will not sit in the middle of the living room and lick my crotch.
12. The cat is not a 'squeaky toy' so when I play with him and he makes that noise, it's usually not a good thing.

P.S. Dear God: When I get to Heaven may I have my testicles back?

I have Windows 10 and I have Classic Shell installed.

I like my taskbar items to be Uncombined, Showing labels.

But no matter what settings I try, my taskbar no longer displays items with a border. If you see my screenshot, you'll see the items on my taskbar are displayed as just words, with no border around them.
How do I get the appearance of a border back, like I had in Windows 7?

G'day everyone, here's a problem I've encountered with the settings on my CRT, it's 17" screen and the camera software advises to use 1024 x 768 pixels, but when I set the screen too this there is a band of black around the edge of the screen and the viewing area reduces to about 15", anyone got any idea how I can get a full screen image with the recommended pixel settings. Thanks in advance. Regards Nigel.

A:Black border on CRT screen.

There should be controls on the screen itself for that. You will scroll through until you get to the ones with expand arrows going up down and left right. Then you get to functions that adjust the entire display left right and up down for fine tuning.

Hi in WMP 12 when watching a video I get a small black bonder (bars) of about4 mm around all sides.
It happens in fullscreen on both 16:9 and 4:3 videos.

I have the video resolution on Windows set to 1080p @60hz and In Windows Media Center it's set to 1080p @50hz.
It does the same for 60 50 30 or 25hz videos. I play a lot of 50/25 hz videos as in Australia.

In other players (iTunes for example) they play with no border (bars).
I would use other players only but want to use Windows Media Center and that uses Windows Media Player features to play videos so I get the same border(bars).

Hopefully someone here can help.

Thanks Kevin

A:WMP 12 Black Border (Bars)

An update: I am going to use Media Center (which is just an interface for Media Player anyway) as I found a way to get videos to fill the screen properly.
I found if I play certain videos twice or 2 different ones (only works on some combinations) then the will go to there correct size.

Like I have a 1080p video of Led Zeppelin which has to be played a second time to go to the right size but my 4:3 videos of The Flintstones will not resize I play them first without using other videos to fix it first.

But I have to do it each time Media Center is closed and reopened.

I hope someone might have a clue what's going on.
I have even repair installed Windows and reset Media center back to defaults.

Sometimes when I view our site on the web, the ends of the top and bottom borders on the far right are cut off. There is just a white space between the border and the edge of the viewing screen. It only seems to do it every now and then (seems to have a mind of it's own). Seems life minimizing screen or clicking through a couple pages makes it happen sometimes.

I have a toshiba note book NB505 running windows 7. When I open a new word pad to type information the borders are set on 0.5 left and right. I want to change the border size but when the setting change window pops up, the window is to large for the screen and I can not click on OK. The box is below the screen and I can not get it to move up? Also when I type in a short sentence and hit enter it drops down two spaces instead of one?
Please help.

A:word pad border change

The OK button is the default for the Page Setup dialogue. After you set the margins just press the Enter key and your changes will take effect. Alternately, with the Page Setup dialogue open, perform the following key combinations:
Alt + Space bar, then m (for Move) and use the arrow keys to move the dialogue and reveal the OK button.
To eliminate the spacing, click the line spacing button on the ribbon, and un-select "Add 10pt space after paragraphs."

You need to adjust your margin size within MS Word. Or possibly re-size your border somewhat, to allow it to all print on your printer.

I am using FP 2003 and converted the 6 areas, I have on the website I manage, to use Dynamic Web Templates. This has all worked well and I have been editing the site quite successfully for well over a year now.
My BIG problem now is that I retained Shared Borders from pre FP 2003 days to maintain a "standard" header containing navigation buttons etc. I now want to be able to change these navigation buttons on a monthly basis. Although I can incorporate the "standard" header into the six DWT files I want some standard method of being able to change the header in one place and NOT have to change it in all six DWT's my web site now uses as the changes will be complex at times.

After a crash of IE8 I restarted and now the top of border of IE8 is dark black and tells you precisely where you are. For example, right now above the address box it reads "Vista Forums - Post New Thread - Windows Internet Explorer - [InPrivate]." I can post a pic if needed.

If memory serves the top border used to be graphite (my color preference) without any site information.

I restarted IE8 and also shutdown and restarted Windows which didn't solve it. What happened and how can I fix this?

It sounds like you are showing tabs in a separate row (that is how its for my IE9, anyway). Put your cursor on a blank space on the bar (try next to the tab and the address bar) right click and untick, show tabs on separate row. If that does not work, send us a screen shot.

Hi all,

I'm wondering if you can help me with the issues I'm having with Windows 10.

I recently did a reinstallation and since doing so, I'm unable to rectify 2 issues I'm having.

The first is my system tray icons and sub menus for task bar icons having a 1px border like the following screenshot:-

The second, if I right click my taskbar icons, I want to make the colour match the rest of the colour scheme, not be black, like the following screenshot:-

Can anyone help with how to resolve these issues?

Thanks all. :-)

Hi supersonicsjm, welcome to!

The translucent borders look like the effects of AeroLite, you'd have to go back to the default Windows 'borderless' theme.

The only way to add matching colors to those elements would be to run a High Contrast Theme.

I suddenly had a problem.
I rebooted, and then there was a black border on the right side of my screen, even in the bios and on my Ubuntu boot. The resolution that is apparently the max is 1200x800, where as my original resolution was 1366x768.
I tried to update the monitor driver, but it's apparently up to date, calling it a
"Digital Flat Panel (1024x768 60Hz)".
Updating the graphics card driver for my Mobile Intel Chipset didn't help either.

If anyone could help with this, I'd be extremely grateful.

No big promises but...

If you open your Folder Options dialog in the center of the General tab, you will see a selection for single and double click... if you enable single click you can set it to only accent links when you point at them. I don't know about Firefox but in IE if you open your Internet Options in the Advanced tab about half way down there is a selection for highlighting links only when you hover on them...

I have arranged my desktop with an icon "dock" at the bottom of the screen, showing large icons with the text removed. However, 2out of 10 icons are showing a border. This only shows when the icons are displayed as large or custom size. Is there any way to get rid of this annoying border? I'm almost certain it's not a registry or icon property as it only affects 2 icons. Possibly could it be something to do with the particular .ico files?

Anyways, due to the way I like my desktop to look I need at least custom sized icons, and this border is really irritating...I need rid of it.
