Talking Big 'X' Button cab/app

We all as TP owners know how difficult it is to press the 'X' button in the corner to close apps (which is probably the most frequent thing I do on the phone). Does anyone know if there is a cab or registry entry or app or anything that enlarges the 'X' button. The TP has a flush screen with a recessed touch overlay that makes pressing the normal sized 'X' such a pain, sometime requiring me to press it three or four times to close the application since I have big fat fingers.
TIA!! You guys =

Re: Big 'X' Button cab/app

Do you have a mogul or TP looking at your profile? If you have a TP did you loose your Stylus? You might find somebody that could enlarge it , would require remapping that part of screen.

Re: Big 'X' Button cab/app

i dont know of an app, but i am surprised to hear of the trouble. the flush screen should make it easier. try this: when closing a program, leave most of your thumb off the screen, but with a little but on.

EDIT: also check out magic button...

Re: Big 'X' Button cab/app

Sorry, never updated my profile I have a Touch Pro. It just seems like the 'X' button is too small. I was just wondering if there was some sort of reg entry or cab that could expand the button to make it easier to press.
Hibby, I tried you suggestion but I guess my fingers aren't as graceful as yours lol. PS love your ROMs!

Didn't appear to do anything for me. Does the unzipped file need to be renamed from shellres.192.dll.0409.mui to something else?

Thumbs up Re: Big 'X' Button cab/app

I'm surprised that no one has come up with larger icons for the top row. I'm constantly having to hit the X more than once and hitting the message icon is near impossible if I'm using my thumb.

And I thought I was the only one with fat thumbs!
