    Where's Aero?


    I looked for Aero in the Help section and it said there are no results. Does the Win 8 Preview have Aero?

    I found it, thank you. Uhm, that's it, huh? I think I know why no one else has started a thread on Aero.

    I think that my video card isn't powerful enough to play Aero.

    lol really, how do you get the windows bar like in windows 7 style with the button and the more options instead of the start menu button that looks plain on the right side of the screen?

    For Windows 8, there is no such thing. (Well, maybe some 1980s solution hah.)

    Aero works well on a machine I have with ATI IGP 9000! Talk about an oldie haha.

    This is true with the Microsoft generic default driver or the specific XP driver for it installed.
