Windows 7: Minor issue I have

Minor issue I have

When moving windows around they turn invisible except for the edges, is there any way to make the windows stay visible when moving them? Maybe this pictures will clarify my issue.



I'm trying to move it left here; see how it turns transparent?



Now I'm moving it right and it does the same thing. Sure it might be a small annoyance but I don't like it.

Okay here is how it looks when moving windows in vista in vista:


Moving the window right



Moving the windows left. In vista the window stay fully visible when moving it and only recently the windows in 7 have turned invisible when moving them. So can anyone tell me how to keep the windows from turning transparent when you move them?

You have to disable transparency in the personalize options by going into the colors section and unchecking the enable transparency box seen there. I've seen some ghosting here with the 32bit 7 but not anything quite to that degree. But that would be the first thing to consider.

Hello TheDuckGuy,

If you go into performance options, (type performance options in the start bar), you should have an option about halfway down to "show windows contents whilest dragging" make sure this is checked

That had no effect when moving the windows I'm afraid. Still the same problem.

When I type performance options in the start bar it only gives me power options not performance.

Nevermind, after typing just "performance" in the start bar I seen performance options and sure enough the box was unchecked. Looks fine now, thanks!

OK the long way is ...

Right click on "Computer" on the start menu or desktop, and select "properties"
Select "advanced system properties"
Click the "Performance" "settings" button

that should find it
