How to Turn Off Aero 'Glass' feature?

I tried Googling this but all I found was how to turn on/off Aero completely. I'd like to turn off just the part that makes the boarders around window panes translucent; I think it's called the 'glass' effect.'

I've always have had it turned on, but recently it's bugging me as I keep closing the wrong window(s). Yes, I know I should be paying better attention...

Well that was easy. Thanks Brink! I'm trying a different tack now that you've shown me the way. In Option 1 of your link, I just changed the color to a dark one. So instead of all windows being pale blue, the active window is now dark brown. Now I can more easily see which is which (I usually have a lot of windows open). If I still have trouble, now I know how to turn it off altogether.

Thanks again
