Like the new "Luna" Windows XP Interface, but dislike the screen-hogging window title bars and the ridiculously large (compared to the "classic interface") window close, minimize, and maximize controls?
To set the window title bar and controls back to a more reasonable size, go to the Appearance tab of the Display control panel and click Advanced. Then click on the title bar of the sample window, and you can reduce the size from 25 pixels to as low as 20 pixels. By reducing the title bar font size, you can shrink the title bar even smaller.
This change makes the screen fell less cramped, and restores the correct (in my opinion) proportions to the title bars. Now if someone could do something about the bigger taskbar...
