Implements a Windows service (in a DLL) that removes the rounded corners for windows in Windows 11

ep_dwm

Implements a Windows service that removes the rounded corners for windows in Windows 11.

Tested on Windows 11 build 22000.434.

Pre-compiled binaries are available in the ExplorerPatcher setup program (download the latest pre-release). You can install that program - it already includes this functionality built-in. Alternatively, to get only ep_dwm.exe from the downloaded ep_setup.exe, run this:

ep_setup /extract C:\ep_dwm

The executable will be extracted in C:\ep_dwm. If you do not need them, you can delete the rest of the files in there and keep only ep_dwm.exe.

To register, type these commands in an elevated command window:

sc.exe create ep_dwm binPath= "\"C:\ep_dwm\ep_dwm.exe\" ep_dwm Global\ep_dwm" DisplayName= "ep_dwm" start= auto
sc.exe description ep_dwm "ep_dwm Service"
sc.exe start ep_dwm

To unregister, type these commands in an elevated command window:

sc.exe stop ep_dwm
sc.exe delete ep_dwm

    How to install the service and make it work?

    I followed your instructions on ReadMe but I can't seem to get it working. I created the service and restarted the explorer.exe and dwm.exe. I also tried again and this time I rebooted but I still can't figure out what went wrong. I tried to lookup ep_dwm in the event viewer for logs but there was none but the tool was running the whole time!

    Anything that I might have missed?

  • Unpredictable result of

    Unpredictable result of "ep_dwm_IsWindows11Version22H2OrHigher()"

    In the routine "ep_dwm_IsWindows11Version22H2OrHigher()" the resources are free'd prior to calculation of the return value depending on the resources.

    So the result is unpredictable.

    A solution may look like this:

    BOOL result = ((int)HIWORD(vinfo->dwProductVersionLS) >= 22621);
    
    free(path);
    free(ver);
    

    // return ((int)HIWORD(vinfo->dwProductVersionLS) >= 22621);

    return result;
    

    Thanks for your impressive work !

    I stumbled across this preference in PowerToys. If you just want to disable rounded corners and you don't mind using FancyZones, this is by far the easiest (official?) way to do it: "Disable round corners when window is snapped"
