I was going nuts the last two days, trying to figure out why my Windows Vista system all of a sudden didn’t have Aero Glass after a reboot. I tried all sorts of hacks, including editing the registry, when the answer suddenly came to me:
- Aero Glass requires 32-bit color
It’s the dumbest thing, but once in a while your display settings do change for no damn reason, and you are on 16-bit color. Go to the Personalization > Display Settings control panel and switch the colors settings. Huzzah!
Any other common things that cause Aero to just dissapear? Let me know in the comments below.
