Warning! This version works only in Windows 7 and Windows 8 DP/CP/RP. For Windows 8 RTM and above please use Aero8Tuner software.
AeroTuner software allows you to tweak several Windows 7 Aero settings which can't be changed with control panel.

Did you know what Aero engine in Windows operates with two colors simultaneously? AeroTuner allows you to try it in action as well as control of Aero Stipes (that lines on your Aero Glass).So, you can change the all Aero/DWM settings with this application, such as:
  • both windows colors
  • transparency in windows;
  • color balance;
  • glow color balance;
  • blur;
  • Aero stripes amount.

This program rocks, thank you so much. I tried oceanic to change my desktop in Windows Starter but every time I restarted it reverted back to the original default background, this is the only program that works!

I think you mean Personalization Panel, because AeroTuner do not change wallpaper.
Thank you anyway for warm words.

This program works in Windows 7 starter?

Only after Aero patch

Eu acho que você quer dizer Painel de personalização, porque AeroTuner não mudar papel de parede.
Obrigado de qualquer maneira para palavras calorosas.

I dunno why , the transparency does not work for me.
Also as in the snapshot shown above, I dont have just 2 buttons (save, close ) but I have 3 buttons (save, restore to dwm,close).
Cant guess what the problem is :-(

Moreover your earlier personalization panel and color changer worked perfectly. Thanks for all

This does work for Win 7 Starter

This cannot work in Starter. There is no Aero in Starter

Your app is very interesting, but unfortunately it can't alter one thing I wanted altered the most. Every selected and not maximized window has certain black shadow. Is there a way to change that shadow into something else (eg a faint glow?)

you can't change that shadow because it is theme's PNG resource, not DWM effect

¿Funciona para Win 7 Starter?

Panda | 21 Nov 11

Happy Bulldozer, thanks for your answer.

Where is that PNG located? Is it possible to access and change it?

Even if it is a PNG resource, can you make an app that can replace existing PNG picture with the one I painted in, say, photoshop?

There are some other stuff (like the size of rounding on windows) that I would like to be able to customize. Are there more advanced apps for that sort of thing?

You need software named Windows Style Builder.
Or software called "Restorator"
I don't remember exact location of that shadow resource, but you will easy find it, if you open standard c:\windows\resources\themes\aero\aero.msstyles file in any of that programs.
I can create that program, but it is better if you make your own Visual Style for windows 7 and then share it with other people.

I recommend you to learn and try Windows Style Builder. It is very powerful tool for visual style editing

Not yet. I am working for Aero8Tuner. Please be patient

Anonymous | 17 Aug 12

I can't seem to access glow color. But it was fine initially and also the Personalization panel that I have downloaded earlier before this, is having some trouble in opening 'Advanced setting' in Window color. I have tried re-installing it but it not working. Any suggestions would be helpful.
