How to Personalize Vista’s Windows AERO Graphics
I will show you how to Personalize the color scheme for your Vista Aero graphics. This advice also helps with the disappearing Aero problem. There are four options: Vista Aero (Best), Windows Vista Basic, Windows Standard and Windows Classic. For the Aero effect, I will explain your choices to fine-tune the graphics settings.
Unfortunately, in certain situations the Vista Windows Aero graphics reverts to Windows Vista Basic, consequently, you lose the translucent ‘Aero Glass’ effect and also Flip 3D does not work. Of course it’s Mr Nobody’s fault, but rather than pointing blame, this page shows you how to configure the Aero Graphics to your liking.
