Get Windows 7 Ultimate Aero Effects on Home Basic and Starter Edition

If you’re stuck on Windows 7 Home Basic or Starter Edition and can’t enjoy the personalization features on Ultimate, then here’s something you ought to do to get all those extra features. Windows 7 Ultimate personalization features include all those Aero effects and extra Desktop features that isn’t packaged with Home Basic and Starter Edition.

There are other ways to get all those features on your Windows 7 edition, but all those include installation of certain third-party applications. However, the Aero Glass, Aero Peek, Aero Shake and other Aero features are difficult to come by. To skip all those installations and programs, you can now get all the features by downloading and running a certain Patch. The Patch comes from Mr. Dusha and was made public Microsoft MVP ‘Vishal Gupta’. It gives you all those personalization features on your Home Basic or Starter Edition Windows 7 operating System and makes it as customizable as Ultimate by patching all the system files automatically.


The installation procedure is really very simple. Before you try this, make sure all your work is saved and all running programs are closed and only then proceed. Why? Because as soon as you run the Patch.exe file, the system restarts.

  • Download the Patch, which is in a zip format, from over here.
  • Unzip the folder and then run the Patch.EXE file inside it.
  • As soon as you run it, your computer will automatically restart and patch all the necessary files.

That’s it!! After the reboot, you’ll have all the personalization features of Windows 7 Ultimate.

If you want to remove it, which I really doubt, you can re-run the patch.exe file again.

Let us know if you succeeded in getting this done on your Laptop or Desktop. Remember, this is only for Windows 7 Home Basic and Starter Edition, which lack the Aero effects and Personalization features.
