Windows 7: Dark when maximized

Dark when maximized

I remember this feature of windows vista when a window is opened maximized (suppose a document,pic,or browser/anything) the windows aero theme would become dark. but that feature no longer exists in windows 7. is there a way to make it happen? (P.S I do not mean "turn off/turn on windows transparency")

a picture attached for detail of what i mean. thanks,

I used Vista for about a year and I did not remember that feature I'm not saying it wasn't there I just don't remember it.
Unless there is a third party program that will do it, it is not possible with a theme. The closest you could come to that would be to have the active window one color and the inactive window another color but as far as the color changing when you go from minimize to maximize I am going to say no.
