That issue aside, has anyone found a way to get aero back in? (aside from that weird customization setting/bug that gets a glass-like effect)
Try Metro first, you might be surprised. If you absolutely cannot get used to it for whatever reason, then look into third party programs.
To get started, the shutdown menu is in the charms bar, which you bring up by moving the mouse to the top or bottom right corner, then click settings. Then you can select power, which then allows your shutdown/restart options.
Control panel, programs, and more system functions is easily accessed by right-clicking the bottom left corner.
Right clicking on an empty spot on the start screen will allow you to access the all apps menu, which will display all the programs installed. Right clicking on tiles on the start screen allows you to customize them, and left click + hold allows you to drag tiles around.
As for Aero... I'm pretty sure that requires a significant bit of coding to make it work, and might require some core changes to the OS that might not be allowed. So as of now, there is no actual way to enable Aero as it is implemented in Windows 7.Edited by Tsumi - 10/14/12 at 12:20am
