What operating system do I need, so that when I run my cursor along the menu bar a window pops up, rather than a small text box?


How do I get the Aero desktop experience? The following editions of Windows 7 include Aero:
  • Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
Aero is not included in Windows 7 Home Basic or Windows 7 Starter. You can find out which edition of Windows 7 you have on your computer by opening System in Control Panel.

The edition of Windows 7 you're running is displayed under Windows edition near the top of the window.
You also need to use a Windows theme to display Aero graphics. If you are using an Ease of Access theme, some elements such as transparency and thumbnail previews will not appear. To view which theme you are using, open Personalization in Control Panel.

The theme currently in use is highlighted.

Tip

"Aero features are'nt running in window's 7"


Solution: Check that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements for running Aero:



1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor


1 gigabyte (GB) of random access memory (RAM)


128-megabyte (MB) graphics card


Aero also requires a DirectX 9 class graphics processor that supports a Windows Display Driver Model Driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel.

For best results, you might also want to follow these graphics processor recommendations:



64 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution that is less than 1,310,720 pixels (for example, a 17–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has a 1280 × 1024 resolution)


128 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 21.1–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 1600 × 1200 resolution)


256 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution greater than 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 30–inch wide-screen flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 2560 × 1600 resolution)


To turn on window frame transparency, the color scheme must first be set to Windows Aero.

1.Open Personalization by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Personalization.


2.Click Window Color and Appearance.


3.Select the Enable transparency check box.

To change the color scheme to Windows Aero

1.Open Appearance Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Window Color and Appearance. If the Appearance Settings dialog box is not displayed, at the bottom of the page, click Open classic appearance properties.


2.In the Color scheme list, click Windows Aero, and then click OK.

Check that your theme is an aero theme and not a normal theme. Themes are available in normal and aero and can be confusing. Set your theme as an aero theme and you should get the aero window working.

These steps will help us to have AERO running.

Thank's and Regard's:

HOW TO DELETE AERO FROM MY WIN 7 HOME


Windows Aero Glass is Microsoft's 3-D high-end interface for Windows 7. In order to get this interface, you must be running a video card that supports running Aero Glass. Some video cards barely support running Aero Glass and performance suffers and the computer will lag. By simply disabling Aero Glass, you can take a crawling computer and bring new life into it. In any situation, if you want to increase performance, disable Aero Glass.

Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize. Select Windows 7 Basic theme and a "Please Wait" icon appears and changes your theme. Select Windows Classic theme if you are used to a Windows XP look and feel. A "Please Wait" icon appears and changes your theme. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproui/thread/ce96731f-8f7a-4d13-ba9b-7826cb595e3d

The text on my pc keeps going blue, how can I stop it?


Windows allows you to change the themes of your computer. This includes the wallpaper, the screensaver when your computer is idle, any noises it makes, and even the color of the toolbars and windows. Sometimes, however, when you restart your computer, the theme will revert back to the Windows default theme, which is called Aero. This can be because you have not disabled Aero, because your performance settings are using too much energy, or because your screen resolution is too high or low for the theme you are using.
Screen Resolution b> The higher your screen resolution, the sharper the images and text will appear. Sometimes, however, the of the wallpaper for the theme is not the same as the screen resolution. This can cause your theme to revert back to the default. To fix this, click the "Start" button. Then click "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" window click "Adjust Screen Resolution" under "Appearance and Personalization." Select the resolution that is the same as your wallpaper. b> Performance Settings b> If your computer is running on high performance settings, your computer's energy will be used quickly and Windows may automatically change the screen saver to keep the energy from running to low. To change your performance settings, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Change Battery Settings" under "Power Options" and select "Power Saver" or "Balance." b> Disable Aero b> Aero is the default theme setting for Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you try to change your theme and it reverts back to Aero, it is because Aero is still not disabled. To disable Aero, right-click on your desktop and click "Personalize." A window of all the themes on your computer will open. You will see "My Themes," which are any themes you have created, and "Aero Themes" under it. To disable Aero, click "Save Theme" under "My Themes" to make your current settings default, or select one of the themes under "My Themes." This will make that theme the default. b> Troubleshooter b> If you still cannot figure out why Windows changes the theme back to the default after restarting, you can use Windows's built-in troubleshooter. The troubleshooter will find the source of the problem and automatically fix it for you. To use the troubleshooter for your theme, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Troubleshoot Common Problems." Under "Action Center," select "Appearance and Personalization." The troubleshooter will run. When you restart after it completes its action, your theme should stay the same. Hope this helps.

Please i want to enable aero in windows 7 my direct x is 11 and 64mb graphics


Hi waquashashmi,

A way to know if your Windows 7 system supports Aero or not is to look at Windows Experience Index score. The score (both base score and subscore for graphics component) should be equal or higher than 3.0 for Aero to work. To view your Windows Experience Index, go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System, then click on "Windows Experience Index".

To display Aero effects such as transparency in Windows 7, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that Windows Experience Index has been calculated and computed.
  2. Click on Start menu.
  3. Type the following text into the Start Search box: Aero
  4. Click on a search result listing under Control Panel group that named as the following: Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects
    arun_zac_16.jpg
    Trick: If you don't see "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects" in the search results, click on Control Panel to see all Aero related items in Control Panel.
  5. An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button. arun_zac_17.jpg
  6. The troubleshooting wizard will try to detect any problem by running a series of checks against various components required to make Aero works and running, such as video memory, Desktop Windows Manager (DWM) service, color depth, theme, power settings and etc. At the end of the analysis, the wizard will attempt to fix the issues related to Aero service and restart the Aero feature. arun_zac_18.jpg

Aero effect is missing


Let Windows Vista start normally and log into your personal account. You do not need administrative privileges to enable or disable the Aero effect, as it is a personal setting and can be different for each user
  • Right-click on an empty space on the desktop to bring up the desktop's context menu. Make sure you're not clicking on an icon or a file as this will open an entirely different context menu.
  • Click "Properties" in the context menu. This will open a window containing various setting for Windows Vista's desktop.
  • Click on the drop-down menu and select the "Windows Color and Appearance" option.
  • Select one of the color schemes you wish to use for your Windows appearance. By default it is set to clear glass (marked "Default"). Simply click on the color scheme you wish to use.
  • Click on the box marked "Enable Transparency" to enable or disable the Aero effect. If there is a check in the box, transparency is enabled.
  • Use the slider marked "Transparency" to adjust the level of transparency you wish to use for the Windows Aero effect. The further right along the slider, the more transparent your windows will appear.
  • Click the "OK" button to enable your changes. You may click the "Cancel" button if you are unhappy with your adjustments and simply wish to leave the settings as they are.

    You will not have the Transparency option if you have a Basic and High Contrast Theme instead of a Aero Theme.

    Aero Requirements to be Enabled in Windows 7:
    NOTE: If Aero is not enabled, then Transparency will not work even when enabled.
