How do I enable Aero without setting wallpaper back to default?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I had an unstable GPU overclock that kept setting Windows to classic, and now I can't figure out how to set it back to Aero without setting the entire wallpaper back to default.

Here's what I mean:

How do I set that back to Aero (see-through).

Thanks.

There is a check box under windows color and appearance that says 'enable transparency'.

You can also try these two commands if it happens in the furture. They restart dwm which will restart areo. This will only help if areo crashed and wasn't turn off manually though.
Code:
net stop uxsms
net start uxsms
make sure the cmd is elevated (run as admin)

yup no problem. I have to do it so much now that I made a batch for it and put it on my desktop. I think it's that Areo has a hard coded memory limit and my 4 monitors are maxing it out but it's just an educated guess.
