Change titlebar button size?

I've been trying out WB on my Win 8.1 tablet and I like it a lot.  The only problem I have is that the min/max/off buttons  in the window titlebars (not the taskbar) are too tiny.  I can barely operate them.  With WB I can make the titlebar font larger, and that forces the titlebar larger (sort of -- it looks kinda funky), but the buttons don't enlarge.  Any way to fix this?

Hi,

 

You can make the whole UI bigger by changing the DPI settings at the Display settings, set the DPI to 125 or 150 and WB will follow that.

One thing to keep in mind is that not all skins will be compatible with custom DPI settings so you may get some small issues with those.

Quoting danioc,

None of my skins work if you change that Dani.   As soon as you have a somewhat Graphically advanced startmenue it all goes to fk. Misalignment allover.

Edit: I would say the Best way (Maybe the only way) Is to make them bigger in photoshop and re import them into Skinstudio for the whole blind to work properly.

neone6,

 

That's the tricky part about skinning, you have to do your best to balance usability with looks.

Right now usability is harder to get around since touch based devices got very popular.

Agreed, so skins being produced now should absolutely be skinned with those in consideration, however for the older skins a Photoshop re sizing - Sks Re import would be the best solution.
