    Gentlemen,

    I need your help & assistance. Does anyone know how to enable Aero Glass in Windows & Home Edition, 64 bit?

    Also all my open windows stack on top of one another. How do I adjust that to make each window open up in their own window on the task bar?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Windows 7 is set to automatically adjust its Aero effects based on your systems windows experience index rating, is this a new system or did you upgrade an older computer? Your graphics component must be 3.0 or higher than 3.0 for Aero to work.



    Right click on your Start button - Properties - Taskbar - Never Combine

    Hey Sarge,

    When I follow your directions of Start/Properties/Task Bar/ I notice Aero Peek is greyed out. How do I enable this?

    Thanks for the help.

    Does your computer meet the minimum requirements I posted in my first reply? If so then follow StuntPilot's reply

    Hey Sarge,

    Thanks for the help. Your fix for the different windows in the task bar worked.

    My computer is brand new & meets all the requirements. I followed Stunts directions to no avail. Aero Peek is still greyed out in properties. I did re-do Windows Experience twice. Any other suggestions?
