    Enable Desktop Manager

    I have Vista Home Premium and I am wanting to enable Desktop Windows Manager. I would like to display Aero desktop effects such as transparency.

    Can you please tell me how I can find Desktop Windows Manager and how I can enable it.
    Once again I am asking for your help and am grateful for any suggestions.

    Many thanks.
