Bounty: 50

For years I’ve been using the ahk script below to disable the WS_CAPTION (long 0x00C00000) flag on Windows 10 applications windows in order to make their title bars invisible. The most common case of usage is for chrome apps opened as window.

LWIN & MButton::
MouseGetPos,,, WinUMID
WinSet, Style, -0xC00000, ahk_id %WinUMID%

I’m not sure if it’s because of my Windows update or Chrome update, but this does not work for chrome apps opened as windows anymore. It still does work for other applications, though. I’m pretty sure there is no problem with my script, because I never change it. Also, my AutoHotKey didn’t update, so I guess there is no problem with it as well. I’ve filled a bug report for chrome (I think they don’t provide reporters an url), even though I’m not sure it’s their problem. Does anyone also have this issue or know what could cause it?

As asked by 3D1T0R, here’s a screenshot of a current window that this script used to work on.
