When you are selecting thumbnails in windows 7, you can change borders too. There are different types of borders you can apply to thumbnails like
- No border
- Straight border
- Photo border
- Shadow border
You can make the changes and apply them by making changes in the registry editor. Here are the steps to change thumbnail border in Windows 7. You can tweak the registry to make them appear like a video film cutting along with the ‘sprocket-holed’ perforated borders.
