I am working on the rastertek tutorials at http://www.rastertek.com/tutdx11.html and I am converting them to use the directx on windows 8 libraries. An issue I have come across is that the window outline (close, maximize, minimize and the frame) are not showing (or there at all). Is this a design choice by rastertek or is it an artifact of using windows 8? I am trying to fix it but I have no idea where to start.

I believe the window style might be what is giving the window this appearance.

When the CreateWindowEx is called the window style WS_POPUP is given.
That gives the window a borderless (including title - so minimize/maximize & close) look.

You could try changing it to something like WS_OVERLAPPED.
