    How to Toggle Windows 7 Aero Desktop on and off

    Here's a simple way to make a batch file to disable Windows Aero desktop:

    1) Create a text file and call it aero off.bat

    2) edit the bat file and put these commands in it: net stop uxsms

    3) Create a text file and call it aero on.bat

    4) edit the bat file and put these commands in it: net start uxsms

    Just make sure that you're running them as an administrator, and then you can turn the Windows Aero desktop on and off with a quick link.

    Enjoy

    Why would anyone want to do this? What purpose does it serve? Isn't the Windows Aero desktop better?

    This basically just turns off the video acceleration of the Windows 7 and Vista desktop. Some programs require this but don't automatically do it.
