Windows® 7 Aero Customization
What are the problems associated with Windows 7 aero customization?
A set of enhanced visual effects to make the desktop more pleasing and making it easier to take through the Windows is called aero. A new set of features called peek and shake is there in aero. Aero visual hallmarks include Windows which are translucent and come with animations. They can be personalized as well. A Color mixer is provided so that one can pick and choose color to mix and create one's own color tints. All the same, aero is not just a pretty interface. It can put to use too many more functions. Just point the icon of a particular program on the taskbar, a thumb nail sized preview of all its open windows would be shown. This is true even when the icon is of a running video. On hovering over any of the thumb nails, it transforms into a full screen preview. Windows aero is a more touch-friendly UI. Aero snap is yet another function. Clicking and dragging a window to the right left causes the window to fill that half of the screen. Snapping a window to the top of the desktop makes it maximize the Window to full. These Windows can slide horizontally if moved. They can be pulled off also.
