Visual Studio and WPF force Windows 7 to apply basic theme
Every time I open up my WPF projects in Visual Studio (2010) and open a XAML file, my computer switches from the nice semi-transparent theme to Windows 7 Basic.
Does this happen to you too? If so, this is how to solve it:
- In the main menu, select “Tools/Options”
- Under “Environment/General”, uncheck “Automatically adjust…” and “Use hardware acceleration…”
- Enjoy the Windows 7 flashy theme 🙂
