Enable Basic Theme for Windows 7 and Vista

Modified on Wed, 23 Dec 2015 at 03:59 PM

The desktop projector typically disables Aero and other graphical effects in Windows (7/Vista/8/8.1/10) before projection. In some cases, these visual effects will remain enabled during projection, causing slowness and browser crashes. If this is happening to you, and you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, please ensure that you have enabled the 'Basic Theme' for Windows.

Note: This is NOT needed for attendees, these steps only need to be taken by Presenters using the projector application and only if there are problems with the web browser crashing.
