How do I disable the aero glass feature on Windows, which can make the options button and timing display hard to see or invisible in some cases?

Follow

On Windows Vista through Windows 10, the older software (up to and including 1.1.18) uses a theme that causes the software background to match the system color scheme. However, the options menu and timing display are always white, which can be very hard to see when the system window color is very light.

There are three solutions:

  1. Update to the new software, which does not use aero glass.
  2. Disable the aero theme option in the Saleae software.
  3. Change the system window theme color to a darker color. This can no longer be done in Windows 10, as the system color no longer applies to Applications, which always use white.

Disabling the aero theme in the older software (up to and including 1.1.18)

Options menu -> preferences -> aesthetics tab. Use Aero Glass style -> No. Restart software.

Note: If you can't see the options menu button because your theme is set to white, try clicking about a quarter inch below the close button on the window title.
