Appearance of "close", "minimize" ecc buttons changed

Hi,
After reinstalling my Windows I've noticed it looks different.
everything looks brighter and the windows buttons are different,
instead of the normal left one I have the annoying appearance on the right. (images attached)

I know it has something to do with the color setting but I can find anywhere I can change it.
I would greatly appreciate a help with this one

Welcome to the Seven Forums

It looks like it's changed from aero's to the basic theme, right-click on the open spot on the desktop and choose Personalize and try changing it to a aero theme.

Ok I've figured what was the problem. I didn't have a video driver installed.
I installed it restarted and it was all good.

Thanks
