If you’re working on an application that uses custom window chrome - whether you’re using Windows.Forms or WPF - then make sure you check out the Marlett font, already installed on your system.

This font contains the actual glyphs used by Windows to draw genuine windows chrome, making it really simple to reuse thse glyphs if you’re drawing it yourself.

  • For a Close button, use the text r (lowercase R);

  • For Minimise use 0 (zero);

  • For Maximise use 1 (one);

  • For Restore use 2 (two);
