Every time I try to change the buttons, they're automatically re-sized to a set height and width. How can I avoid this?

I'm quite sure it has to do with sizing margins. The original close button was 31x22, but mine is 12x13.

You can change their sizes by just changing the sizes of the images like the close button here:



Is this what you mean?
No, that doesn't work. Here's the default image (31x22):


And here's my image (12x13):


But this is what happens:

You got to shape the images and make the rest transparent:


I tried that too, didn't work. It still scrunched it up.

Caption Buttons are hard to get right you just have to keep working the images and making everything else transparent. Keep editing the images until you have the right shape, size and position. Especially circles...

You can make your own also. Just make the originals transparent. Or make the original glyphs transparent and add yours right on your buttons. Or do both...

It takes a lot of work to get them looking right. Hours of work or more. But you can do it.

And don't forget about the glows. They have to be resized and shaped too. Or make the originals transparent and make your own. Or get rid of them altogether.

Ugh, okay, thanks.

Random question; where do I change the progress bars?

Here's a screen of a theme I did,those buttons are 14x14 mounted in the middle of a 28x24 transparent background,I'd suggest mounting them in a  transparent background the same size as the original aero  buttons for your first go .
   Took me a while when I first did these,if you get really stuck I'll send you this  theme  and you can open it  in vsb to see how I did it...

Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > DWM Window > Controls > Captions > Window > Close Button > Normal Button > Active and Inactive   > CONTENTMARGIN:MARGINS

This is what the numbers are for ( left, right, top, bottom)

If you increase the number for left by 2,you'll have to decrease the number for right  by 2  to stop the glyph from squashing, same for top and bottom ( you can use "-" minus  numbers here as well ..  ,don't go too far left or the close button glyph  will turn into the restore button,this goes for all 3 caption button glyphs, you can only move them so far..
