I'm running Vista on a MBP using bootcamp and have noticed the "Flip3D" feature in Vista doesn't work. (Instead of "stacking" the windows, a small window opens up with icons in it for each page.)

Not a major deal but was wondering if there might be a workaround someone knows.

Thanks

I am also running vista under BC on my MB and the aero & flip3d works by default... no work-around required. BTW which version of vista have you installed?

Did you install the drivers off of the Leopard disc? Without the drivers, you can't display 3D properly

A box/bar comes up with an "E" icon (the explorer icon) for each page that is open.
