    Get real (!) former Aero skin/theme WITH Transparency?


    I appreciate Aero Skin/Theme from Windows 7 and would like to use it in Win10 as well.

    As I found out
    1. the hidden "Aero Lite" skin/theme can be activated by Registry hack but does NOT offer transparency
    2. the hidden "Aero Lite" skin/theme cannot even be activated and used in newest versions of Win10.

    Any other idea on how to get the good ol' full Aero Theme (with Transparency) back in newest Windows 10?

    :)

  2. Themes (AERO) keep changing back on every start-up

    A few weeks ago this problem stated occurring....

    While I normally have my desktop theme set at the AERO transparent theme, I found that when I was starting my computer, instead the theme that was being used by Windows 7 was the standard Win 7 theme.

    Even though I would go in and change it back (I can list the steps here, if necessary, but I think everyone probably knows how to do that?!?), what I am finding is that each subsequent day, or re-start, it reverts back to the standard Win 7 theme; MY CHANGES
    ARE NOT "STICKING"!

    Does anyone have any idea why my changes are not being saved once I make them?

    Windows XP theme and Aero

    So, I've grown extremely attached to the Windows 7 Aero theme, and XP looks pretty nice too. However, since XP's already dead, and 7 is very quickly nearing end of support (P.S., please don't kill 7, it'll be bad for all of us), soon I'm going to have to
    switch to the Metro theme. Metro isn't that bad at all, but it would be nice if you could include an Aero theme in a future update for Windows 10 -- and maybe even an XP theme, too. Heck, maybe you could even toss an Aero, XP, and Classic theme on the Xbox
    One. Would you please consider doing this? If you do decide to take down 7, including the Aero theme in 10 would save us all a bit of trouble -- especially the people who have become so attached to Aero that they end up having to download loads of third-party
    software to make 10 look even remotely like 7.

    I know you care, Microsoft. Please consider this heavily.
