So I was recently fiddling with my theme settings on my computer and accidentally changed the theme. Now the top bar of chrome (where extra tabs would go) is blue instead of transparent. The bottom bar where active programs are pinned is also no longer transparent. I tried changing the theme back, but nothing will work. I'm sure this is an extremely simple fix, but I have no idea what that fix is.
Edit: I have figured out that windows desktop manager wasn't enabled. After enabling the manager, Aero effects (apparently the transparent bars) worked. I still am unsure how this happened though. Any ideas?
