    Default A removed 3D border, or a way to remove it

    Hi everyone, I am wondering if you could remove the 3D-border from the next release of irfanview.

    To show you which 3d-border I mean:

    (The one on the left is with the 3d-border around the picture, and the one to the right is without it).

    This leaves more space for the image and makes it look less "strange" when you use a different windows-skin.

    Hopefully it is a simple thing to remove.

    Sorry about this shameless bump I just wanted to request this feature again (And I didnt want to clutter the forum with another post).



    I started using windows 7 since last post and with the transparent theme it is really visible.

    Shameless bump 4 years later.

    Still wondering if it would be possible to remove the 3d-border effect around the image being shown.

    irfanview is such a nice player, but I still cringe every time I see that 3d-effect.

    Since another 3 years have gone by, I bump once more and hold my fingers crossed

    Irfanview is, and have been for years, the perfect image viewer for me.

    The only thing I dislike is that 3d-border.

    This looks like a Windows thing to me. Notepad has a similar border to IrfanView.

    Look in your Windows Themes to change this.

    I would happily be wrong, but I have a lot of experience trying to change visual things in windows, and I don't believe it is related to the windows theme or any windows settings.

    I have tried irfanview on:
    Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10. All with default and custom visual themes.
    I have changed every setting I could find in windows, and tried quite a few things in regedit without any luck.

    However:
    I managed to remove the 3d border by hex-editing irfanview. (This is the main reason I am pretty sure that it is irfanview code (or compilation tools?) that creates the 3d-border).

    While I was able to remove the 3d-border this way, irfanview still resizes the window like the 3d-border is there. So instead of the 3d-border it shows the "Main window color" (that you select in irfanview->properties->viewing)


    - To the left you see the original irfanview
    - In the middle I have modified the irfanview exe file to remove the 3d border (so it shows the "Main window color" instead)
    - And to the right I have dragged the borders a little bit to try to remove the space showing the "Main window color".

    I hope I am not offending anyone by having modified the exe without permission, I only did it to try to solve this issue with the 3d border.

    Edit: it seems it resized the image, try this link for full size image:

    Edit2: Also, Notepad in windows 10 doesn't have such a border (at least not with the default skin).

    Sorry for necroing this old thread but does anyone have an idea about what hex values the above poster altered? I've opened it up with a hex editor and can't figure out which border/frame section I need to alter.
