AeroTuner by hb860 AeroTuner by hb860
UPDATED. Current v 1.1
- Fixed issue with third-party theme which crash AeroTuner
- Added "restore" to restore default DWM settings (which was before changes)
- Added possibility to drag AeroTuner's window using "big" caption.


AeroTuner is little application was created as example for DWM programming article. Can be useful because:
-It allows you to change all DWM parameters separately without DWM restarting
-Can change Aero Stripes amount or even disable them
-Can change colors for normal and overleed windows separately.

Everything from this list you can’t make through Windows 7 UI.

Works for me.

Except it won't remove the fading or 'smoke' effect in the upper right and left corners.

Anyone know how to do that?

Help! I was done to get the transparency by using a patch for aero but after I changed the advanced system settings [Computer > System Properties > Advanced system settings], i was changed the animations for minimizing and maximizing, it suddenly changed into default
and after I run the 'Aerotuner' again the color box is still black which is the color I've chosen before and I tried to change into some other colors it isn't working anymore!
I have done rebooting, change the advanced settings back, and it still doesn't work
And I also checked whether it's the aero patch problem but it still work properly like multiple wallpaper which changes for minutes, and it's not in windows 7 home basic

Please help,
I was so happy for the aero settings

Thanks a lot for this, I'm glad to be able to remove those Aero stripes now.

I'm sorry if you've been asked this many times before, but is there any chance that you could add a setting for the glow behind the title bar text, as seen here:

I doubt it, because this has been asked plenty of times on many different sites. But if you did it... you would be a HERO!! Thanks again for this app.

I have a suggestion to make - How about an option to save the settings in a file so that the same can be installed on other machines. This will allow us to create themes with custom glass effects and include the effects file in the theme pack..

Because you have non-documented values in registry.
All dwm params cannot be greate than 100. You have 120. Apply default windows 7 theme then use AeroTuner
