    Simple Trick to Enable Aero Glass Effect in Windows 8


    Although, Microsoft has decided to drop Aero Glass UI in the final release of Windows 8 OS (see details here), fans of Aero experience can still enable this translucent window experience (Aero Glass) in Windows 8 with a little trick (Aero was first introduced in Windows Vista and then in Windows 7). Interested users just follow as described below to get Aero Glass in Windows 8.
