Windows 7: Question for the 32-bit color depth.

Question for the 32-bit color depth.

Hey guys, I have a question for the 32-bit color depth, before I brought my PC to a repair shop, the windows minimize, maximize and close button looks like the picture 1, but after reformatting it, I re-installed my gfx card drivers, updated MSE, and updated Java (yesterday), and after restarting it, I noticed that the buttons looks like it came from the 16-bit color depth (picture 2), I want to change it like the picture 1, Nvidia color panels says I'm on 32-bit which is true. Also after downloading 500 Mb of updates, it's still like picture 2. Is there anyway that I can fix/change it? It makes me think that those buttons doesn't fit with the 32-bit color depth.

Hello Patrick,

It looks like you may be using the "Windows 7 Basic" theme instead of an "Aero" theme.

Theme - Change or Save

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Problem, there's no "Aero Theme" in my PC, is there any way to download it? Or it's in the OS? Before reformatting my PC, there's an aero theme.

Sorry, just noticed that you have Windows 7 Home Basic installed. It does not have Aero included in it.

You might see if this may be able to help get it though.

Aero - Enable in Unsupported Editions of Windows 7

Thanks Brink, it's working fine now, I'll give you a rep. Question, will the effect still be in place even if I restart or shutdown my PC?

Edit: I'll give you the reputation later since it's saying "You must spread your reputation around before giving it to Brink again".

No worries. Just glad it was able to help.

Yes, it will continue to work after a restart.
