today i forgot what but i ran a program and suddenly the display theme changed to Windows 7 basic automatically.
which made things very weird. i really dont like it and found it inconvenient.
please help me out.
1. task bar
the task bar used to be black/grey ish. i didnt change it when i first got it it was just like that and i liked it. but now its like light blue. and it used to be kind of clear that u could see through the task bar even see your wall paper through the task bar. but now its just blue. how do i change it back?
2. when i first got windows 7. one thing i liked a lot is when u put ur mouse on one of ur program's icon dont click it, a little print screen shot of that program will show up. i dont know how to explain it but yeah hope you can understand. but yea after it changed now i put my mouse on it its just the title of that window/program, no image. i really liked that feature.
how can i have these features or settings back? i didnt change any display settings after i got it upgraded. it should be default settings but i dont know what to do. plz how me out here
THANKSS!!Someone help me with Windows 7's display theme and task bar!?
If you do indeed have Professional, and not Starter, then the Personalize control panel should have Aero themes and Basic/High Contrast Themes.
Click on the desktop and pick ';Personalize';. Switch to an Aero theme, and many of the settings should return.
If for some reason the Aero themes aren't there, you might have to reinstall Windows, as there isn't an easy way to restore them.Someone help me with Windows 7's display theme and task bar!?

these settings use more power so u will have ur lapi discharged 25% faster.....and these settings r not recommended for laptops for business purposes..... if u wanna use ur lapi for long and will face prob. if it's discharged fully i recommend u to use win default themes and settings as they consume less battery power...
