Hi, i have just adjusted my gf's paging file being as i have recently increased the Ram and after i restarted the laptop the start menu+task bar has gone grey and looks very much like when i once got her Vista to run 'basic' (i changed it back) Please can someone help me find out why this has happened? It is Vista home premium!
Sounds like you've set the menu to be Windows Classic style. If it's the same as XP, right click the Start button and select Properties, you should then be able to select the style of Start menu.
You may also have an issue with the Desktop being Windows Classic, in which case right click the Desktop, select Appearance tab and the select the style of Desktop you want (again this is all as based on XP, maybe slightly diff in Wista).
Ok, i have tried and tried but the answer seems to be to turn Aero back on after going to the options mentioned, Windows Aero just isn't one of them! There is 'Windows Classic', 'Windows standard', 'High contrast white', 'High contrast black', 'High contrast #2', and 'High contrast #1' but no 'Aero'!! Can anyone help me please?
Hallelujah!!!!!!! Ok, i have found that i had to restart 'Themes' in 'Services' to get the option of 'Vista', as soon as i chose that the taskbar went back to normal!! YAY!!!!!!!! I hope this is of use to anyone else who has to the problem!!!! Thank you all!!!!
