Windows 7: Is it possible to enable smoother window animations?

Is it possible to enable smoother window animations?

Hello! I've recently downgraded from Windows 10 to Windows 7 (Server 2008 R2 ) and one thing annoys me a little. Window animations are not super-smooth. Vista, 8, 8.1 and 10 have VERY smooth window-opening animation, but not 7 I've been looking through registry editor and didn't find anything related to it. Is it even possible to enable "super-smooth" animations in Windows 7? And I don't want to completely disable animations.

Pictures pixelated when zoomed in on (smoother in XP)
Well, along with my videos being pixelated and grainy (working on this in separate threads), my pictures get grainy when zoomed in on as well. It appears as if Windows 7 isn't using smoothed transitions at all, while the same picture zoomed in on in XP doesn't have the same blocky/pixelated effect....
