    Aero Glass and Image Backup on Win 10 Query

    Last time I queried both of these subjects WRT Windows 10 upgrades was when I bought a new laptop in 2015.

    My findings at that time were that both had been deprecated from Windows 8.1 and 10. So I simply elected to buy my new laptop with custom install of Windows 7 Pro. Problem solved.

    Fast forward to now and I'm again facing the same problem, only now it's EOL for Win 7 soon, apparently. Therefore, I'll ask the same two questions again.

    Are Aero Glass and MS Image Backup available on Windows 10, yet?

    Only limited transparency effects (taskbar, Start menu e.g.) are available by default.

    A good glass effect is available using -yes- Aeroglass- available since Win 8.1. 3rd party.

    Aero Glass for Win8+

    For 2-3 euros you can get a couple of licenses- transferrable- or the free version with no updates and a legend on the desktop.

    This program must be uninstalled before applying a feature update, and is upgraded for each build release.
    Transparent borders apply to all programs which are not implemented with custom frames.

    A form of border can be applied to UWP apps: (narrow blue border):

    Note the opaque area which has now been applied in these apps more recently (left pane).

    MS Image Backup: Not sure what you mean. For disk imaging, MS recommends as has been said so many many times here that a 3rd party tool e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) be used. MR is recommended time and again here, used by many.

    Use Macrium to make backups. A quick search on here gives you the result about Aero Glass. Aeroglass is now available up to build 1809 - Windows 10 Forums
