Windows 7: How to download an Aero Theme without Transparency

I never found Vista to be that Bad, It was running on the correct hardware with certified Vista Drivers of course, but was much better out of the box than the awful release version of XP, which was due in part the decision to try to "replace" Windows 2000 and and also the 9x series of consumer OS with the one set of code - this resulted in a crippled version of Win2000 and half finished drivers for consumer hardware - XP was ok after SP2 apart from the awful Luna interface (looked like a kiddie toy computer).
As I had each batch of systems on delivery I either had them loaded with Win2000 or those that came with XP had the "Classic" interface switched on and Luna removed completely from the machine ( business customers demanded it )

Will Windows 7 run on 1 GB of ram? Sure it will.
Will 1GB of ram allow Areo? On some computer hardware.

If one is happy the way a computer runs with 1 GB of ram. I happy for them.
If Areo isn't working with 1 GB of ram I still suggest adding ram.

One gig, 4 gig 8 gig or more depends on some things.

1. What will the hardware allow.
2. How much money one is willing to spend.
3. How well does one want the computer run doing the things one wants it to do.

I also run XP on 512 mb of ram. I was very new to computers and didn't know more ram improved my system. When after a while I understood that more ram would help.
I went all the way to 2 gb of ram and then 4 gb of ram. I now had a race car for a computer.

Ram does matter to a point.
I have run Windows 7 from 4 gb to 32 gb of ram. 32 gb of ram was a waste of money for what I use my system for.
Both my system have 16 gb of ram. I could easily get by with less ram. My systems would work quite well with 8 gb and to some degree with 4 gb of ram.
It all depends on the 3 conditions I posted above.


Just my opinion and experiences.

If you said that 7-8 years ago, then I would agree even so it also depends on what are you using the computer for. For instance it'll run for sure and then what tasks you run?
Nowadays just the browser alone can suck up to 400-500MB of RAM depending on how many tabs you open. Then what else let me see, you run office programs, you listen to music, you watch live video streaming etc. etc..
As I said above M$crosoft minimum recommendations is 1GB of RAM without telling what programs are running, also we are talking about "recommendations" made around 10 years ago!

You need to change the theme because this is the way Windows 7 works now, it's no more like it was up to Windows XP unless you install specific software that can do the task.
Right click on the desktop with the mouse and choose "personalize", you'll see a display of different themes, I tried the the "Windows 7 basic" I think it's the one you're looking for.

Dude you need to cool down.
What you're asking isn't easy to do so the most common answers to your problem are: 1)do a system restore, 2)do system drivers check (sfc command), 3)reinstall Windows, 4)take your computer to a technician, 4) have a cuppa and relax!
A I said since Windows 7 Microsoft has made it harder to change and modify themes (which includes changing icons and colors) so the option is to install a specific software (I forgot the name) which will allow you to do it (but you still need to do your homework).
By the way, you talk about reading your thread which isn't clear to understand then you don't answer one my simply questions I asked you so you're the one who needs to read the thread carefully.

Okay then, I'll describe it in more detail.

So I want Aero theme, not like the real.. I want the theme, but without these features:
-Transparency
-Aero Peek
-Aero Flip

So in explained: I want Aero Glass, but without transparency, because my pc, because he will lagg until his dead.

-Color The Aero Glass: I want to color the Title bar, for example to green. As like on the stronger computers, you choose an Aero theme, change the color in the Color and Appearance setting, then in same place, disable the Transparency. (I can't do it, because the Aero isn't supported on my graphics card, and if I click on Color and Appearance, it just popup a window, and I can only configure the Windows Classic theme.)

-Color the Taskbar: I want to color the Taskbar for example for green as well... Still I don't want transparency.

-Change the Window caption buttons (minimize, maximize, close window button): I want to change these buttons to like in the Aero Theme. I don't want to change the styles, color, or anything, I just want the original.

-Color the Start menu and the only stuff where I want transparency: I want to color the Start Menu to green, and surprisingly, I want transparency for it too. I don't want other features, just this, nothing special.

This is my thread describe in explained. I hope you and other people can understand correctly and clearly.
+I calmed down, I just drinked a cup of milk. :)
