    No 'Aero Snap' or 'Flip' 3D for Vista Home Basic -Any Good Alternatives?

    'Aero Snap' and Flip 3D - Cool features.

    Unfortunately these are NOT included in Vista HB.

    They look good and useful for a number of tasks. Saving a lot of mouse clicks and searching.

    Is there anything similar, or even better, out there suitable for Vista Home Basic 32bit?

    Please don't forget your poor relatives the HB Boys and Girls !!

    Thank you in advance for any help and tips.

    Hi Again,

    Could not find anything on Flip 3D, but here is someting on Aero Snap

    Dont know the effects that this software will have, be sure to make a system restore point first.

    Thank's for that Richc will check it out.
    Reading various info. I think the Snap is not made for HB, but will check anyway.

    You mentioned making system restore point.

    After the week with nasties I thought I would look at the setup for System Restore.

    Looking through the Task Schedular I cannot find it anywhere, so I think that will be my priority.
    I will look more at Task Schedular, had just opened when I got your post.
    Buit can't see it scheduled. Strange±!!

    create a shortcut and paste this
    C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105 in the target

    Cheers ilikefree,
    I will try that.
    I checked my compter today and unfortunately Vista HB is NOT Aero enabled, but I'm sure I'll find some cool, fun things!!
    I heard about company called 'RocketDock' see if they have something different!

    Try your link, let you know what happens.
    Thank's for the tip

    Hi ilikefree,
    Checked out the tip you gave me re: Aero Snap etc., great link with all the Win7 features available for Vista.

    Does warn you that some are experimental and if you get a bug please let them know, so caution I would say is the best policy.

    But some great ideas to brighten up your screen.
    Thank's for that, will have lots of fun.
