This is one of those small annoyances that is extremely aggravating to me, it's also a bug that existed in Windows 7. Here's a screenshot of the problem:
Notice how there are no margins for the selection on the right and bottom, and that the margins on the top and left are different? This is very aggravating.
As I said, this problem actually exists in Windows 7 as well, and I was able to fix it by using Resource Hacker to modify a UIFILE in
ExplorerFrame.dll. (See below on how to fix it in windows 7)
I took a look at
ExplorerFrame.dll, but all of the UIFILEs are just binary and not editable XML like they normally would be. I also briefly looked at
shell32.dll but didn't spend too much time in it as it has quite a few UIFILEs, some of which are again, just binary.
Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
To Fix this on Windows 7: Use Resource Hacker to open your
ExplorerFrame.dll located in
%SystemRoot%\System32 (You might also have to do this for the one in
%SystemRoot%\SysWoW64 if you're using 64 bit) and replace the UIFILE > 40960 with this XML. This will fix the margins so they are all symmetrical. Here is the diff between the original and modified XML.
Note: I'm no longer have access to a Windows 7 install, so I can't be positive this was everything I changed to fix this, it was a long time ago.
