Get Aero Glass for Windows 8 (Fully Native) by dAKirby309 Get Aero Glass for Windows 8 (Fully Native) by dAKirby309
:bulletorange: It's finally here! I am showing off the newly perfected Windows 7/Vista-styled Aero blur effect for Windows 8/8.1! A developer that goes by the name "BigMuscle" has been working on this for months, and with all the trial and error put in, here is the result! And the results are fantastic!

:bulletblue: I've been following wango911 who has been following BigMuscle's development of this feature for quite a while now, watching it go through all kinds of beta testing... and now it's fully functional and fully stabilized! (And highly recommended for eye-candy) It also consumes very little RAM! So far I have experienced no problems or bugs!

:bulletgreen: You can check it out here:
Development Thread/Q&A: www.msfn.org/board/topic/17085…
Download here: www.glass8.eu/

:bulletred: DISCLAIMER: I took no part in developing this nor do I have any ownership rights over this... fully developed by BigMuscle and his team.

Enjoy your computer's new look! Have fun! :)

Microsoft should incorporate this into windows 10 in some way as an option. I know little people who like it without the transparency. And it does look good with the flatness ;-)

Fully agreed! There are I'm sure hundreds of thousands of Windows users who like the transparent look, including me! It really does flow really nicely with the flat, modern style MS went for in Windows 8. The main reason they removed Aero in Windows 8 was to make Win8 available to a much wider range of computers than 7, which required a decent graphics card in order to run to its full extent.

They NEED to make it an option in Windows 10 as it will be a welcome addition for many, and there are millions of PC's that can run Aero very well. While some don't want it, many do! So being an option would be great! :D

People have been able to hide away the DWM window from the taskbar in some screenshots...

WARNING

Aero Glass by Big Muscle may "corrupt" memory and potentially lead to a BSOD system failure. This is usually when using intense applications that use alpha channels, so do NOT run this with Photoshop, Paint.NET, GIMP, and other similar programs unless you are prepared for crashes and problems.


Back up your work and consider creating a system restore point before installing and using Aero Glass.

Good suggestion. That is what I've done. But I've had no need for it! It's very stable.
