Windows 7: Windows 7 aero maximize window.

Windows 7 aero maximize window.

In Vista when we maximized a window, both taskbar and window turn black. I think that effect is great idea because the user is focus in window content information.

But with 7 nothing happen.... I do not understand. is a bug???

No it is not a bug, it is by design because so many vista users complained about that.

Hello Herimero, and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, it was done intentionally. Many people did not like that in Vista and wanted them to stay transparent even when the window was maximized. You could disable transparency to have it that way, but it will be that way all the time regardless the size of the window.

Hope this helps,
