How to enable/disable Aero Glass in Vista?



February 14th, 2007

Is there a way to disable/enable the Aero Glass interface in Windows Vista or am I stuck with it all the time?  I'd like to be able to turn it off if I need to.  Thanks!

Yes.  It's pretty easy to switch between Aero Glass and Aero Basic (or any of the other themes):

  1. Right-click on a blank spot on your your desktop and select Personalize.
  2. Select Windows Color and Appearance.
  3. From the list of color schemes, choose any of the themes except Windows Aero (try Windows Vista Basic).
  4. Click OK.

To re-enable Aero Glass:

  1. Right-click on a blank spot on your your desktop and select Personalize.
  2. Select Windows Color and Appearance.
  3. From the list of color schemes, choose Windows Vista Basic.
  4. Click OK.
