I only have a small problem, which isn't really a problem, more of just an annoyance. When you drag a window around in Server 2008 R2, it just shows a outline, much like Windows 98. Here's a screenshot demonstrating what I'm talking about. I'm using the Desktop Experience feature, and Aero is turned on. Anyone know a way to fix this?

Ensure it's turned on:

  • Head to Control Panel\System and Security\System.
  • Click the "Advanced System Settings" link in the left pane.
  • Under the "Advanced" tab, in the "Performance" box, click Settings.
  • In the list under the "Visual Effects" tab, ensure "Show window contents while dragging" is check-marked.
