Windows 10 has turned the traditional windows borders into a single
pixel border and there seems to be no good way to fix this.

When I have lots of PuTTY sessions active, it is hard to find the
edges of overlapping windows. The "Window/Appearance/Adjust the
window border" don't seem to be able to help.

Is it possible to change something in PuTTY to allow for visible
borders? Allowing selection of the color for "Adjust the border"
might be enough. This seems to use the background color but using a
different color might help a lot.

Alternatively, if there is something already available that can
address this issue I would be very glad to hear about it.

Thanks for this very useful program and for working on it these many
years. It is important for us Unix/Linux users force to use a Windows
system. I have been using PuTTY on and off for probably over 20

It's not just PuTTY. It's like every dang windows! I'd like to thicken the borders. :(
Meh to that Olympic 2020's opening ceremony (2008 Beijing's is still the best), but understandable. Will 2021 repeat 2020? :(
