Before you do ANYTHING PacMani has biult a little tool for that. So be sure to check out his gallery.PacMani
Ok here we go
(I hope the instructions are right because I have a german windows7)FILES ARE 32bit if anyone has 64bit please upload
The idea was to use the borders as shadow or completely leave them but the aero blur was a pain in the ass
So I looked on the net and found a way to disable blur
The first thing you have to do is make sure which version of windows 7 you have.
6956, 7022, 7048, 7068, 7127 works without patching
7000, 7077, 7100(RC) needs to be patched
Instruction for Versions: 6956, 7022, 7048, 7068, 712
Create a DWORD: HideBlur=1
Then press STRG+Shift+F9 twice
Now Instructions for Versions: 7000, 7077, 7100
To do that go into System Control Panel type in the search: service
Then there should be an entry named "Show Lokal Services"
There search for Session Manager for Desktop Window Manager and shut it down.
2.Take Ownership of DWM.exe and uDWM.dll
Go into Hardrive\Windows\System32
Right click DWM.exe go under Security Tab then click advanced
go to owner tab click edit and click your name click ok
then ones more right click DWM.exe go under security tab but then click edit then if your name is listed click it and give yourself full permission if it's not listed click add then type in your Name, click ok and give yourself full permission.
Do the same thing with uDWM.dll.
3.FIRST DON'T FORGET TO BACKUP THE FILES----Copy the DWM.exe and uDWM.exe from the zip.
Unpack the Zip file in it there are the files from Windows 7 Version 7127
and copy them into Hardrive\Windows\System32
4.Then start Session Manager for Desktop Manager again
From now on you can use the instrucions from the other versions.
The taskbar remains blured
So now for skinners:
Simply use shadows instead of borders that's the trick
I hope everything is clear
PS: Don't know if it was the skin bur for me the right resizer went away.
And don't blame me for spelling mistakes I'm austrian.
