Tip of the Week from Reba Nance
Make it Easier to Minimize, Restore, or Close Windows in Windows 7
The little buttons on the upper right-hand corner of the screen that minimize, maximize, and close a window are called Capture Buttons. Moving your cursor so you can click on the X to close a window can take time because you have to be exactly over the small X.
There’s an easy way to make those buttons bigger and easier to click. Here’s how:
1. Click Start button (lower left-hand corner of your screen) and choose Control Panel (on the right)
2. Under Appearance and Personalization (in green), click on Change the Theme
3. Click on Window Color (at the bottom)
4. Click on Advanced appearance settings …
4. The “Item” button probably says Desktop. Click on the drop down arrow on the right-hand side and choose Caption Buttons
5. The size will probably be 21. Click on the up arrow and you can watch the buttons get bigger. Try selecting 27.
6. Click on Apply and then OK
It will be easier now to minimize, restore or close windows! Feel free to contact Reba Nance at email@example.com with questions.
