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.

How can i change my desktop background? Im using Window Starter works with Window Vista


Hi, unfortunately windows 7 starter is a version with lowered capabilities as to be lighter on weaker computers. So, they Windows removed some functions from this version.
Windows 7 Starter does not include:
  • Aero Glass, meaning you can only use the "Windows Basic" or other opaque themes. It also means you do not get Taskbar Previews or Aero Peek.
  • Personalization features for changing desktop backgrounds, window colors, or sound schemes.
  • The ability to switch between users without having to log off.
  • Multi-monitor support.
  • DVD playback.
  • Windows Media Center for watching recorded TV or other media.
  • Remote Media Streaming for streaming your music, videos, and recorded TV from your home computer.
  • Domain support for business customers.
  • XP Mode for those that want the ability to run older Windows XP programs on Windows 7.
In order to try and change the background there have been some workarounds, but i do not recommend any of them for they are faulty...

Click on Start menu.

Type the following text into the Start Search box: Aero

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

An "Aero - Troubleshoot computer problems" wizard dialog will appear. Click on Next button.

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.

How do i change the toolbar theme?


Go to start, then control panel. You will either see “pick a category” or a page with around 30 icons to select from. If you see various icons, look to the left of the page and select “switch to category view.” Click on “Appearance and Themes.” Selecting “change the computers theme” allows you to change everything according to a package or you can use the tabs to select each feature. Below “Pick a task” are options for the display and taskbar (which I am assuming what you mean by the “toolbar.” If you are talking about something else, please clarify.

I have installed Windows Vista Ultimate on my PC. Now the Aero theme is not working and the same is missing. Please help.


Hey, i've had the same problem. Did you try patching the aero theme? Cos i did the same and it corrupted! One thing you can try now is that you can copy this theme from any of your friends' PC which is running Vista Ultimate and copy it in yours'. You shd paste the file under "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes" (shd have Admin rights to do this). Then apply the theme as usual.
But if the above doesn't work and you are desperate in need of the Aero theme, then no other way other that re-installing the OS.

Hope this help. If so, rate me.. thanks - billa
