what happened to my Aero?

When I first started using Aero flip 3d it was quite neat, but now for some reason instaed of the windows "flipping" they are all together horizontally in the screen. Any idea how this changed and how I can get it back?

  1. Did you try changing the theme to something not Aero, apply, then set it back to Aero?

    Not that I recall...I'll check it out when I get home. I should set it to aero and hit apply and can never change it to use it? That stinks. (not that I care about changing the theme...I could care less, it's the principle).
  3. Under the display properties, there is also a few tweaks that you can check on or off for the Aero theme (such as not having the glass look). Can't remember all of them (I'm at work now too... working hard :lol:) but you will find the options... check to make sure they are set accordingly as well.

    R click your desktop and choose
    NEW then SHORTCUT

    Copy and paste this code...
    RunDll32 DwmApi #105[/code:1:bc418977f1]
    Into the "Type the location" field
    Make a name.

    Click it and see if the result is the same as for the one in the taskbar.
    If it is the DWMAPI has regestry settings that could be the issue.

    One possibility is that your Vid Card drivers need to be reinstalled?

    I was looking through and I suspect these are the settings in the REGISTRY... Someone would need to confirm that though...
  7. It also depends on what programs you are using. Any that aren't compatible with Aero means that aero gets turned off while you are using the program.
