Getting Windows Aero to keep working

by Joe on Sep 28th in Aero, Remote Desktop, Troubleshooting, Windows 7

I was working on a couple of things earlier today and realized that some of my Windows 7 features weren’t working any more. Specifically, I couldn’t get the taskbar thumbnail peek feature to work.

After about 30 minutes of fruitless googling, I switched my theme, thinking maybe it just needed to be reminded of its inherent Aero-ness. This seemed to work.

A little more googling turned up a possible reason for the loss of my Aero desktop – Remote Desktop. Apparently it can muck up the Aero settings real good.
