Windows 8 basic theme issue

    Question

  • Hi, I think the Windows 8 basic theme fits a lot with the Metro UI, but I have a issue. Sometimes the basic theme is semitransparent (like Aero) and sometimes it is not transparent. I dont know why but this is frustating.

    So, I think the basic theme with a bit of transparency looks good.

  • Ok It only happens few times. Now Windows Aero is transparent and Windows basic is not transparent. I didnt install any driver and now it Works :-D

    I suggest Windows basic to have transparency enabled and make this theme the default one. Its much better than Windows Aero.

  • Hi there,

    Do you know when this switching happens?

    Are you able to update the video driver? And if so, does updating the video driver work to get this corrected?

    Regards,

    Bobby

  • Since the manufacturers have not created drivers for Windows Developers Preview, I suggest you update to the most current Windows 7 driver.
    If that doesn't work, they try to install in compatibility mode.


    For the driver/drivers you downloaded use the compatibility troubleshooter to install them to see if that resolves the problem.
    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Let us know if this helps.
