Windows 7: Help me! I'm going mad trying to find Aero settings.

Help me! I'm going mad trying to find Aero settings.

Hi

I've just switched from RC 7100 to RTM Professional (clean install).

When I was running the RC I found a panel that allowed me to change various Aero settings. It gave me the option to turn various effects off and on but I cannot find it in my new installation. Can anyone tell me where to find this panel? Surely it's not just in Ultimate!

Cheers - TB

Hi.

Thanks for that. The panel I was looking for was the one that hdfrango directed me to in his post above. Thanks for your help.
