How's that for a name. I think my Aero is goofed up, but I'm not sure. I vaguely remember having this happen before.
I loaded a skin that didn't let me roll up the windows by clicking the title bar. So I looked all over in editor to try to find where to adjust it. I actually found it - once - but the adjusting I did never worked. I couldn't for the life of me find it again. In the midst of all my cussing and theme tweaking the desktop crashed and Windows stopped working (except the mouse). So, Windows was restarted.
Then, after everything was settled, I notice that the title bar is clear on the applications, not the windows or message pop-ups. The problem with clear, I have noticed on my machine, is that it doesn't "click". No dragging, no closing, no nothing.
So, how in the world do I fix it? I've cleared everything to default. I've poked around in the "Personalization" settings. I've tried a slew of themes. I started excluding affected apps until I realized they are all. Sometimes I hate this program <vbg> I WAS having fun before that. I actually started to understand the editor. BTW, why is it some skins have very few selections for editing and others have a ton? (left hand side)
I just noticed Firefox is half the skin I turned on to see if that helped the title bar (not) and half the current theme. Dark blue bars horizontal, faded blue bar where the tabs are that I can see my wall paper though. And green vertical slider. Mouse pointer is permanently frozen on whichever window that has focus - default mouse is happily running around.
