Windows 7: Aero Turned Off

06 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 
Aero Turned Off

The Aero graphics were working fine until recently. I figure I must have turned them off, but do not know how. What leads me to believe this is that the icons on the task bar used to show a mini window when I would mouse over. I now get a line of text that tells me what is in the window. Does anyone know how I turn the Aero back on?

Hello Bigmck,

Are you using a Aero theme? Also check the red warning box at the top of the tutorial below to see if all of the items listed there check out ok.

Window Color and Appearance - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for your reply. It fixed itself. I hit the Start Button and typed in Aero and it brought up Find and Fix Problems. I clicked on that and it fixed itself and Aero works now. Pretty smart program.

That's great news. I always love the ones that fix themselves.
