[Edit...] Apologies. I just found a thread that's dedicated to Aero Glass 8.1 (where I should have posted this in the first place) but MSFN forum won't let me Copy & Paste from here into the other thread. Nor will it let me generate a hyperlink so I can link from the other thread. Maybe I don't have enough reputation or something. Anyway, sorry that this has ended up in the wrong thread...
I downloaded Aero Glass for Windows 8.1. I like the general look and might be happy to donate - but....
1) The donation page seems to be inactive.
2) Quite often I see an annoying popup which shows me a long numeric code and asks if I'd like to copy it to the clipboard. I've no idea what I'm supposed to do after copying it to the clipboard. Do I need to enter it somewhere??
3) I believe that some other products (e.g. WindowBlinds) will allow me to revert my Start Menu back to the 'look & feel' of Windows 7. Is that possible with Aero Glass 8.1? Even after theming, Windows 8.1's Start Menu looks very ugly and it also needs to be launched from a right-click instead of the more traditional left-click. I find it all very irritating and I'd definitely pay for a product that gets it back to the old Win7 style.
4) I use dual monitors. I don't know if it's just an aberration with my particular system but with Windows 8.1, I see 2 x task bars (one on each monitor). It's always been like that, ever since I installed Win8.1 (i.e. it didn't just start happening after I installed Aero Glass). Does anyone know if there's a way to get back to only having 1 x task bar, like in all previous versions of Windows (and every other modern OS AFAIK) ?
