    w8.1 pro can i enable Aero Glass without installing prog?


    Hi

    i'm watching this video

    i run w8.1 pro 64bit , but i haven't enable transparency
    i guess it's only on w8 and not in w8.1

    i try to find on this site under tutorial but no luck

    is there a way to enable it without installing program (have a thirty service or program running) ?


    thanks

    Hi,

    This only works in the Windows 8 release preview - long outdated! They removed it in the final version. Sorry, but it won't work for you.

    Yes now can only set Color Intensity, not transparency from way your showed in Win 8 then.Closest you will get with Windows borders and taskbar. Unless try some third party theme programs, not to familiar with any, if make an Aero effect like Windows7.

    thanks a lot

    do you use a low resource free program to have the aero effect under w8.1 ?

    Windows 8, 8.1, and the Windows 10 preview do not support Aero Glass. There is third party software that adds this feature but it is essentially a hack using unsupported methods that Microsoft has over the years warned developers not to use. The feature could break with a Windows update and there could be issues with other third party software. I would not recommend using any such software on a computer used for important purposes.

    I have not used any such software and have no particular desire to do so.
