Switch to Classic Theme in Windows 7 or Windows Vista (From Aero Theme)

Apply the Classic Theme in Windows 7 Windows Vista and Windows 7 come with the "Windows Aero" theme,  which is as beautiful as it is (comparatively) hungry in resources, mainly on the video card (graphics card) inside your computer. One easy way to make Windows faster is simply to switch from the Aero theme to the "Classic Theme", which was the default theme in Windows 2000 and earlier versions of the operating system. Note that while Windows 7 supports the Classic Theme, it does not support the classic start menu (unlike Vista, which does). The advantage of the classic "skin" is its simplicity: what is visually less sophisticated will be much more efficient to render, by the processor (CPU), but mostly the external or integrated graphics card (GPU) - this translates into a more responsive operating system, and in the case of laptops and netbooks, a longer battery life on the road! (Windows 7 Starter only comes with classic and other toned-down themes, since it doesn't support "Aero", graphic-rich themes.)
