Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
We all like Vista's Aero, even after 7 came out. But for most of us, we just don't want to stop using XP. Or we upgraded, and our computer doesn't support it. So, i am here to recommend a few programs that will give you an Aero Effect.
The first - Window FX - This will give you all the Aero Fade in and Out, and other effects that come with vista. Some versions support Transparency The download is here: http://www.stardock.com/products/windowfx/
The second - TrueTransparency - http://www.crystalxp.net/galerie/en.id.5139-truetransparency-lefreut-explorer-tools.htm This will give you Aero effects, and allows you to have different skins for it.
Others: Visual Tooltip which gives you a Tooltip when you put your mouse on the task bar, which comes with Window FX. http://www.chrisnsoft.com/visual-tooltip/
AeroShake - AeroShake is a Windows 7 Emulator. It allows you to shake a window, to hide all the others. This comes with TrueTransparency, so if you plan on using TrueTransparency, you don't need to install it. http://aero-shake.en.softonic.com/
AeroSnap - AeroSnap is also a Windows 7 Emulator. It allows you to drag a window to the top, or sides of the screen, and it will either maximize, or pull to either side of the window. http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/11/29/aerosnap-free-download-to-enable-windows-7-aero-snap-features-in-xp-and-vista/
All together, these should satisfy, for now, our cravings for Aero, at least until our next computer...

hope this helps
