Disable Aero in Windows 7

If those transparent windows and window animations slow your computer down or annoys you, turn off Windows 7’s Aero affects.

Windows 7 Aero, you know… all of those pretty transparent window affects and animations, are fine but for some people it slows down their computers and can get a little annoying.

Disable Aero Affects

  1. Right-click the desktop and choose Personalize.
  2. Choose any theme from the Basic and High Contrast theme group.

    Note: I think the Windows 7 Basic theme looks the best.
