  • Nothing to see here, just some usual DWM experiments (notice window corners in the second picture)

    You can make a mod to center the title of a window in the title bar how WinCenterTitle do it, but can it work on Windows 11?

  • Any way to make the UWP apps titlebars in Windows 11 center aligned like Windows 8 and Windows 3.1 since Windows 11 is all centered.

    I know that WinCenterTitle by valinet works to center the titlebars in some apps like notepad, control panel, cmd, run, task manager etc... but it doesn't work with UWP apps, they're still on the left, like File Explorer, Paint, Settings, Wordpad, etc... When I discussed with valinet he told me this: It is totally different, and not managed by the compositor (DWM I guess) at all, as far as it seems. If you figure out how to do that, please consider contributing that to this project. here is the project link valinet/WinCenterTitle: WinCenterTitle is a simple tool that allows you to center align the text in Windows 10 titlebars, the same way it was in Windows 8, 8.1, or even 3.1. (github.com) If anyones is experienced with UWP APIs and can make the WinCenterTitle better, please do it, there are a lot of people like hoping to see the titlebar centered since Windows 11 is all centered now! I made a feedback to Microsoft, others did too, but it seems like they want to keep it as it is for some reason. Maybe a nice effect would be like the first builds of Windows 10 where we had the titlebar centerd when the window is maximized and left aligned when it was reduced. Maybe making the script customizable for everyone's ideas. Of course the icon at any case should stay at the left, along with that quick access area for Paint and Wordpad for example. Please upvote this post to help it rise even if you don't like this feature, you can always turn your taskbar to the left and keep it as it is. Thanks and I hope you really like it. I know the post might be duplicate, but it is just to let the people know of WinCenterTitle and help improve it.
  • Thank God (and valinet) for ExplorerPatcher!

    A service means a lot of code and complicated edge cases; trust me, I have done this, it suits some projects more than others (for e.g., I have a project working pretty much as you described - [WinCenterTitle](https://github.com/valinet/WinCenterTitle) - that injects DWM dynamically and patches it so it displays window caption text centered in the title bar); almost no one does it like this regarding Explore hooks - others, like StartIsBack, use this:
