You will need to export the images from aero buttons, then import them into the basic buttons location.

Here are the locations

Aero
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Restore/Maximize Button
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Minimize/Help Button
Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > CloseButton

Basic
Windows and Caption Buttons > Basic > MinButton
Windows and Caption Buttons > Basic > MaxButton

Windows and Caption Buttons > Basic > HelpButton
Windows and Caption Buttons > Basic > CloseButton

You may need to edit the images with a image editor, aero buttons are bigger.

You may need to change the Sizing Margins and/or Content Margins for the basic buttons, the 4 sets of numbers are left, right, top, bottom
