SourceTree & Windows GUI


I'm writing about a problem I found while maximising/minimizing/restoring the sourcetree window.

I am using Windows 7.

The sourcetree window in the upper right corner has very cute minimize, maximize/restore and close icons. Their only problem is that they don't work. When I click on one of them, one or two very ugly icons appear over the aforementioned cute ones.

Fortunately, double clicking on the window bar still does the work, but this is not what I am used to.

Furthermore, by clicking on the lower left corner of the icons (the cute ones), the window is maximized/restored as expected, but again, this is quite annoying because the icons are big enough, but only a small area of them is effective.

Below I am posting a screenshot of one of the aforementioned ugly icons.


Could this be a problem of my windows installation or is this a Sourcetree issue? Please note that I never experienced a similar behaviour with other programs.

Best regards

I guess the fix for the positions and size in or introduced this problem:

Found the bug tracker and the related issue:




I'm not sure the related issue linked to covers this display issue. seems to be a bit better.
