Windows 10: Make Taskbar More Transparent In 1803?

    Make Taskbar More Transparent In 1803?


    Not a major issue, but kind of annoying me as it appears slightly transparent, but not enough. I use a solid black background, and it appears grey. Anyway to make it more transparent? I can't find any setting to adjust it.

    Hello Gelbs, :)

    If you like, this below may be able to make the taskbar more transparent (clear).

    It doesn't work. It still remains the same. Probably due to the 1803 update.

    That's what it looks like. Not really transparent at all, anymore.

    I use a program called TranslucentTB to make my taskbar completely transparent. Here is a link with how to and it has the download on the page. :)

    How to Make Your Windows 10 Taskbar Completely Transparent

    When you create the shortcut in the startup folder(if you do this to have it on startup), in the "Target" box, at the end add this with a space after the program to look like this:

    C:\path\TranslucentTB.2017.3\TranslucentTB.exe --transparent

    Just to let you know, and Shawn too, it still works in 1803 as I just tried it. Did you sign out or reboot after ??

    Definitely doesn't work. I tried the 'option one' registry method. I signed out and rebooted but still the same as my screenshot. I might try the Translucent thing.

    Not here Mike......did the reg file, rebooted the system and no luck.......maybe there is something in my settings that is stopping it.....Oh well, not sure I really wanted it clear, just thought I would try to confirm your findings..

    It's not completely clear, still has a color tint to it, so maybe that's why some people don't see it....
    It does not make your taskbar completely transparent, if that's what folks are looking for, just a little is all.
