  1. Okay, thank you so much for all of the help. I'll give this a shot soon and see if I can get things working.
  2. Unfortunately, the remove blur, fog hidden, and menubar color flags don't seem to make the fog go away. I also tried loading in the css code you posted above, but the fog remained and this happened also:
  3. Thank you for the GitHub page, it was extremely useful in changing some other settings I was looking for. I was unable to find the setting to remove the white layer, despite coming across two that looked relevant: /css/toolbars/menubar_fog_hidden.css /css/toolbars/general_toolbar_colors_aeroglass_windows10_glass8.css I'm not really sure if there are other flags that need to be changed as well or if I am just missing something.
  4. I used the program "Resource Hacker" to modify Firefox's manifest. I essentially removed the line that says it will run on Windows 10, which is the only way I know of to make transparency work on the browser windows. It worked, but the windows have this strange white tint to them. The tint seems to be rendered as an actual layer [as seen in the last screenshot] so surely there is a way to remove it? I'm not sure if it would be under "about:config" or if it's something I have to use Resource Hacker for again. [NOTE: The same white layer also applies to Thunderbird, which obviously is built on the same code.] Any help is much appreciated.
  5. I used Intel's SSU program to generate a detailed report of my system, if it's of any use. I'll attach the report and the program to view it with. [You don't need the program, but it can make things easier to read.] EDIT: Also, here is an example of the artifacting. It can be a lot worse than this, but it's the same premise. SSU.exe SSU.txt
  6. I was able to force the installation of Dell's Intel drivers via device manager, but the problem still remains. I looked at GPU usage in task manager, and it looks like the Intel card is the one causing problems considering it's the only one in use. This means it isn't caused by the switching of drivers. [At least I don't think so.] Still not sure what can be done to fix this, but at least the problem is likely down to only one set of drivers.
  7. I think the problem is that I am using the generic drivers from Intel's site, which are DHC drivers. I can't use the ones from Dell's site because they report "Incompatible Operating System". I am on Windows Server 2019, not Windows 10, but that doesn't really make any difference in terms of compatibility. Maybe I could download the DHC version from NVIDIA so that both of my cards use DHC drivers? I'm not sure if the screen is physically connected or not. My model is a Dell Precision 5520, so I guess it's technically a "mobile workstation".
  8. Ok, this is definitely the cause of everything. I've tried setting up profiles in both settings panels, but I can't seem to figure out which aplliication(s) to designate to which card. Also, I've tried older and newer drivers on each, but with no different results. In response to what you said about certain GPUs handling different things, does that mean it is not possible for NVIDIA to handle something like a game while Intel handles the window manager?
  9. Solved it by instead using a different theme that had a .layout file included. This one works on at least build 17763.1397: winvista.png.layout
  10. Ok, I now know that I have to have a ".layout" file in the same directory that tells aero glass how to position certain elements on screen. But I'm not sure where I can get the .layout file for the theme I have:
  11. Also, which graphics card should glass be using? I would prefer that it only uses Intel, not only to stop the terrible artifacting, but also to conserve power.
  12. I'm new to DWM usage, so I don't really know how to configure any of this correctly. When I try to use a theme atlas image, aero glass gets the positioning wrong. I'm on Windows 10 build 1809. Are there specific atlas files for different builds of 10? Thanks!
  13. I have two chips, as this is a laptop. Intel HD P630 [integrated] and NVIDIA Quadro M1200 [dedicated]. I should disable both, correct? EDIT: After disabling Intel and using only NVIDIA, the problem goes away. So it must be related to when the laptop is switching graphics chips for better performance or battery [IE going from Notepad to YouTube or a game.] Is there a way to resolve this on dual-card systems without forcing the laptop to use only one chip?
  14. The issue still occurs with Translucent TB disabled. I'm using the latest version of TB and Aero Glass. I'm on Windows Server 2019 Datacenter version 1809 build 17763.1369. [Though it functions identical to 10.] Interestingly, when first installing, Aero Glass gave a "can't hook DWM" error. I had to follow the instructions by user "Khanjar" here and use the PDB downloader to get the symbols to correctly register. Could this be causing incompatibility?
  15. Hi, I'm using Windows 10 with Aero Glass and Translucent TB. When certain apps are playing animations, I get a very strange artifacting/screen tearing problem. It tends to happen mostly with Windows Store apps and browsers playing YouTube videos. It also sometimes happens while watching a Discord screenshare. It's difficult to replicate because it doesn't happen consistently, and I also can't get a capture of it. [Doesn't appear on screen recordings or to those watching my screen.] Any help is appreciated, I'm at a loss for what to do. Thanks in advance!
