    Hello inspironatix, [​IMG] to Windows 8 Forums.

    Unfortunately, you can't, Microsoft has removed the Aero Glass from Windows 8 RTM.

    Regards
    Don

    There may be third party software to do the same thing.

    I guess I have grown accustomed to the look of Win 8 Pro. I did not notice a difference. In Win 7 I had many of the Aero things disabled anyway. They all use resources I prefer using on computing.

    As Medicted60 has stated, if you had Aero on Windows 8, it would use up a lot more of your computer resources, for the fact that it's not calculating just a single color for the non-client area of the Windows form's, but what is behind that window, to give the illusion of a transparent blurred look. dwm.exe takes care of all of this, so if someone were to create a patch for it, they would have to tell dwm.exe how to draw the Windows through several Win32 API's.

    After that it comes down to one question - Performance or style?
