    Win 8 - Window Graphics - title bar and border incorrect?


    Hello,

    Is this the correct graphics for Windows 8? The window looks so dull and boring. No graphics whatsoever.

    Display: 1920 x 1080 Full HD

    Display Adapters (as shown in Device Manager)
    1. Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000
    2. NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M

    Graphics Software installed:
    - Intel(R) Management Engine Components
    - Intel(R) Processor Graphics
    - Microsoft Silverlight
    - Microsoft Windows Media Video 9
    - NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver 306.97
    - NVIDIA Graphics Driver 306.97
    - NVIDIA HD Audio Driver 1.3.18.0
    - NVIDIA PhysX System Software 9.12.0604
    - NVIDIA Update 1.10.8

    Is this how Win8 graphics look or is there a problem with graphics card/driver? I tried installing and uninstalling the drivers (both Intel and NVIDIA).

    Any Ideas?
    Thanks

    It's supposed to look like this. Microsoft removed Aero to make the theme more coherent with Modern UI. I agree that it is quite ugly.
