Is there a way in LBB to make the outline around groupboxes wider or heavier?

Not really. All controls are drawn according to the style/theme currently selected by the user, so the visual appearance will in any case differ between different versions of Windows, different configurations etc. You should not assume that somebody else will see the same thing you do!

LBB sets your program's manifest (assuming you are compiling it to an EXE) so as to select 'Common Controls Version 6.0' which is the last release that still supports the ANSI character set (as opposed to Unicode).

Are you noticing any significant differences between the groupboxes used by LBB and those displayed by other applications?

I don't really know, I'm not sure what is being drawn as a groupbox and what comes from other methods in other applications. The boxes and lines in the screens on this forum are much more apparent than in my groupboxes. It's not a big deal, my groupboxes just have very faint outlines that make the groupings hard to see. Thought there might be some sylebit magic. This is Win10 pro, but they're faint on my Win10 home laptop too. Thanks
