How can I get the cool UI effects to work on my P166 computer?

A. Windows 2000 comes with a number of really cool UI effects, e.g. gradient captions, menu fade-in, cursor shadow, etc..

Most of the UI effects are controlled via a checkbox in the Display Properties applet (go to the Effects tab and select Animate windows, menus and lists). The cursor shadow effect can be turned on/off via the Mouse Properties applet (Pointers / Enable pointer shadow).
