How to increase height of window decoration title bar

I’m running at 4k (3840x2160) and configured DPI scaling so text looks decent. However the Window title bar height is extremely narrow and so I can barely hit the window controls when using the mouse. I understand its part of the XFCE theme in dom0 - does anyone know how to edit this value?

Three first results in DuckDuckGo:
1: How do I change the window title bar size on GalliumOS(xfce4) ? / Desktop / Xfce Forums
2: How do I change window title font in Debian 9 with Xfce? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
3: linux - How to control the height of the title bar in xfce? - Super User
Do any of them answer your question?

Thanks, I appreciate that the question comes across as lazy but I did my research and none of the links you provided can tell me how to do it. I know some of the window decoration is hard-coded e.g. label colors so I wasn’t sure if its possible and the xpm theme files are rather cryptic, at least to me. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to respond.

Sorry I don’t but I too use a 4K screen and the Default-hdpi style does
the trick for me.

This solution to this sounds like something that could be added to the community do on DPI scaling.
