    Two dimensional interface harder to interpret?


    Does anyone else feel that the "new" (old?) two-dimensional feel of Windows 10 makes it a bit harder to interpret where one window ends and another begins when there are multiple windows/dialogues stacked on top of each other?

    :)

    I feel the same way. There's no dimension to windows 10 at all. It seems like at least the graphics would be better and not so two dimensional . It's just so disappointing. Maybe they'll come up with solution and hopefully soon !

    Yeah Windows 10 is pretty 'white' by default! *Wink
    Search the tutorials for 'Add Windows Colored Borders'

    Thanks. That was pretty quick and easy to install and greatly improves the distinction between windows but it doesn't look as good as Windows 7 used to. Will this work with Windows 10?

    I ended up having problems with that one!
    This one works well in Build 10240 only.

    On the installer, check only the third option if your running a theme such as thick borders, as in the following screen shot:

    Thanks. As it so happens 10240 is the build of Win 10 I have! Does that mean when it automatically updates at some point in the future things may go awry?

    Possibly, but the developer keeps working on it as well.
    It may be just a matter of re-installing it.

    (If you can swing it, drop the developer a few well deserved Euro's if you like it, that will remove the watermark from your desktop.)

    .. you can also make the inactive borders a different colour/shade from the active window border (which I find essential) using the tweak tool offered on Aeroglass's site http://www.glass8.eu/download.html

    .. and you can add drop shadows (with an exception for ApplicationFrameHost.exe) with Y'z Shadow.

    You really can't decipher between windows?

    Two monitors > 4 snapped on the 27" (left) > 2 snapped on a 17" (right)

    And why would we want to use up valuable screen real estate with borders?

    I certainly really struggled with Windows 10 initially- white on white.. and where did the titlebar end and the rest begin in some cases? With overlaid Windows with no discrimination, no border, I made mistakes. Fixing that - once I'd got over some CPU use issues and delayed delivery of my graphics driver- became a priority. And I'm only using a 15.6" screen.

    Anyway.. hey, it's a personal decision... MS shouldn't force us one way or another, and leave us the option so we have the choice.

    A worse situation to handle is the glaring off-white backgrounds most are forced to use (again the settings used to be there in the GUI but removed). It takes a little techy determination to fix that properly.

    Previously I would always reduce the border width to a few pixels. That control now seems to have gone (and I mean via a 3rd party utility which worked initially in Win 10) as the relevant GUI was removed in Win 8.

    Yah AeroGlass pretty much solved this issue for me. I always use a Personalization theme that generates Automatic Colors for the taskbar and window borders, it does not really work without Glass. Also I found out, if you use any Windows 8 Themes, it will maintain all of the settings for that theme including how long the wallpaper stays. If you had 10 seconds set, it changes after 10 seconds in Windows 10. The settings for Automatic Color and desktop slideshow time are ridiculously hidden from Windows 10 users. You are totally at the mercy of whatever desktop Theme you use. I used to create my own themes for Windows 7 and 8, can't do that so much under Windows 10.
