When using the Metro theme in the 631 release of the WPF Studio. How do I stop the windows Min, Max and Close buttons being so huge when using Windows 7?

Hi Gareth,

You would probably need to clone and alter the Window style that we use to do some sort of one-time platform version check in the template's triggers, and then change the Style of the title bar buttons to something else if you determine it's Windows 7.  This updated Style would need to be in your app's Resources.

Please note that if you use RibbonWindow at all, it wouldn't be advisable to do this, because the newer Office 2016 QAT buttons are taller and we mimic that appearance.  Smaller title bar buttons would look out of place with those.

Ok that makes sense. Thank you.

The latest build of this product (v22.1.3) was released 26 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
