Every window has oversized borders, i tried to go to the border settings already, but im at the minimum border size now: 1, but they are still 10px wide!

How do i get it even thinner?

You can actually set the border padding down to 0. I'm not sure how much smaller 0 is compared to 1 but that's the first thing I change whenever I get a new system. – Zooks64 Jan 23 '11 at 14:07
@gadzooks64: Yeah, I change mine to 1, as it looks stupid with the thick border padding, even on high-res screens. – paradroid Jan 23 '11 at 15:07
@gadzooks64: please tell me how. i cant put anything lower than 1 into that box where it changes the size. is there some regkey for this? – winuser Jan 23 '11 at 15:10
You have to go into the Personalization menu. Window Color. Advanced appearence settings. This will pop up a new window. Select Border padding from the drop down box and change it to 0. – Zooks64 Jan 24 '11 at 0:46

I can't test it, but this may help you.

Hope that helps.

there is still a border – Muhammad Umer Jul 1 '14 at 16:37

The Border Padding setting is under the Personalization/Window Color/Advanced appearance settings.

This window will pop up. Open the drop down and select Border Padding.

Are you sure you are selecting Border Padding and not Active/Inactive Window Border, because it should go down do zero, although it is still visible at that setting?
