How to temporarily disable Aero Glass for Win8+?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a silly question... I've tried to search on this forum several days ago but couldn't get a sure answer.
How do I temporarily disable/turn off Aero Glass for Win8+?
I am using Windows 8.1 and Aero Glass for Win8.1+ v1.4.6

IMO simplest way, If You have CCleaner installed-> Go to Tools - > Autostart -> task -> Disable Task for Aero Glass and Restart OS

Thanks! I didn't know it was just an auto starting program. It works :)

Dude, no need to install 3rd party applications. If you are not familiar with task scheduler, then just rename the aero glass folder to something else and restart.

if you are familiar with task scheduler, just disable the task named as aero glass extension loader and restart.

or for just temporary disabling, open up task manager and end task aero glass extension loader for dwm and end task desktop window manager. The glass effect will enable again on next restart (not for fast startup).

Thanks! I have been using CCleaner so it's not a new install for me. But it's always nice to know ways without relying on 3rd party programs.
