Windows 7: Aero Peek not available

Aero Peek not available

The option is greyed out.
I had it working before I formated my SSD and reinstalled windows on it.
Should I reinstall windows again and see if that helps it?

Hello Leimone,

Do you have your video drivers installed?

In addition, double check each item listed in the red Warning box at the top of the tutorial below to see if that may help.

You're amazing
"Refresh or update your WEI score. You will need an WEI score minimum of 2.0 in both Graphics & Gaming graphics in order for Aero to be activated."
I had to refresh it and after that I got the options to use Aero themes, thank you so much!
