Old Windows graphics on minimized window

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions what to replace it with ? because it is a window and needs to be there for minimizing, restore, closing.

I think it should get the Windows OS own graphics. See an example with PHOTOSHOP when working window is minimized....

This seems to be a default Windows thing. Software makers can alter this if they choose but apparently most prefer to use the default.

Here's some chatter about it.

Dang, I didn't even notice it, maybe because to me, that Windows 7 look is still the "right" UI. The rounded corners, all that, it really did not need "improvement."

It's a known psychological phenomenon, human beings feel more comfortable looking at things that are rounded than we do things that are pointy and square. Walt Disney believed that this was part of why Mickey Mouse outlasted Felix the Cat. Felix has pointy ears, Mickey has rounded ears.

If you look at guitars that have staying power on the vintage market, it's the ones that are all curves. We make fun of the '80's pointy ones. No matter how well made they are, they'll probably never have similar long term lasting value that a curvy guitar will.

Now, no matter how much I appreciate and admire how well Windows 10 runs, I have to stare at those danged square corners for hours at a time. Ouch! Let me have the earlier look as a theme, please!

But yes, Cakewalk should look like Windows, whatever the current version of Windows is. Floated Inspector and Browser etc. windows have the W10 look, and so should the Track View.

A user's idea of how Windows looks depends on the Windows theme and display settings you set the operating system to use.  You can make Windows 10 look like Windows 7 or earlier if you desire.
