Long story short, I'm building an app that doesn't have the official Windows 10 minimize, maximize and close buttons.

So I want to add them by hand. Now I searched a bit on the net but couldn't find what the standard distances/sizes are for these buttons.

I found this: enter image description here

and this:enter image description here

I'm curious what the official guidelines are. I found this from Microsoft but that's clearly outdated.


Edit: No my question is not the same as this one. I'm asking about guidelines, which is not answered in that question

    Hi! I already answer a similar question about W10 icons here: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/100748/… . Read my answer and make sure to check the links. Hope it helps. – User552853 Mar 28 '18 at 13:03
  • Thanks! Do you know if the icons in that pack are the same as used in that top bar? – Gerlof Leuhof Mar 29 '18 at 8:03

    Most likely yes. :) – User552853 Mar 30 '18 at 7:10

    No it isn't. I'm asking about guidelines, not an icon set – Gerlof Leuhof May 1 '18 at 7:29

I couldn't find documentation or design guidelines for the top bar in Windows 10. But the Windows Dev Center provides layout templates for different design software (Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, XD, Framer).

Somewhere in there you'll find the specs I'm sure.
