Sounds useful - but doesn't work with KDE for me :(

Often you'll find your window manager will allow you to change the
default size and position of windows on a per application basis.

In some cases you can modify the width of window decoration. e.g. KDE ->
System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Style -> Configure widget
styles -> Scrollbars -> scrollbar width/top/bottom arrow type

In most cases you can select a style that will give you the edge width
you want (or modify it to suit your needs).

Kind regards
