    I've noticed that the thumb size of the RadSlider control when using the Windows8Theme have shrunk in size since some updates ago.
    Looking through the Windows 8 Theme, it seems that the thumb is only 7 pixels high, and 6 pixels wide.
    Is this a bug in the theme, or is it by design? Because a 6x7 thumb is not very user friendly.

    If this is by design, how can I change the size of all RadSlider thumbs in my application?

    Hi Aksel,

    The RadSlider's thumb height and width in Windows8Theme are accordingly 7 and 6 pixels by design. If you want to change the thumb's size you have to extract and modify the RadSlider's template.

    I attached a sample project in which I have show the described approach. On lines 74 and 75 in the project you can set values you want.
