Easily Disable Vista's Aero Before Running an Application (Such as a Video Game)

You might be concerned with squeezing every last bit of performance out of your machine, or may have compatibility problems between Aero and an application that you are running. Either way you are looking for the simplest way to disable Aero while running that application, and this is it.

You can edit the properties of a shortcut and tell Windows to automatically disable Aero as soon as you start that application, and then re-enable it again once the application is closed.

Simply right-click on the shortcut and choose Properties, and then the Compatibility tab:






Now on the Settings block check the box for "Disable desktop composition" in order to disable Aero the next time you use the shortcut.

Hey,

New to the show but I already am a big fan. Just wanted to say THANK YOU for this tip, I run Windows Vista 64bit Ult. version and I had NO idea there was an option to boost my performance, so thank you for that. Keep up the cool show.
