    Taskbar/Titlebar transparancy level?


    So I just tried out ClassicShell on Win10 and although I didn't like it, it has a nice option which allowed you the control the level of opaque/transparancy on the taskbar.

    However ClassicShell changes a ton of things that I do not want so I was wondering if it was possible to manually change the opaque level without installing ClassicShell.

    Also, is it possible to modify the transparancy level of the title bar as well? Glass8 does a nice job of adding TitleBar transparancy but it's not transparant enough IMO.

    2nd link from the bottom...AeroGlass GUI . Titled "testing version of GUI for editing glass parameters)...or something like that. You can adjust transparency level and shading of glass features in Glass8.

    I'm using it and have mine set to no coloring and 5 for blur effect.

    Yes thank for you sugesting that, it's is a nice tool. But I was also wondering how to change the level of transparancy for the TASKBAR. The Program ClassicShell has the ability to change the transparancy level but it comes with a ton of other things that I do not like. Isn't it possible to control the transparancy level of the taskbar manually?

    Ah...Start10 lets you adjust the task bar transparency and blur...I'm using it for only two things, the task bar and start button change. I know it has more stuff in it, but I just didn't turn any of it on. It's fairly light weight and low resource usage, but it does the trick.

    Hmm start10 is a paid app. There has to be a way to enable it manually? I mean if people create programs capbable of doing it, then there should be a way to do it manually.

    Agreed...would much rather enable it manually, but at this point, until someone has found the setting/reg hack/ or small tool strictly just for task bar transparency, the price to get the start10 out weighs spending days researching and possible hit and miss hacks and tweaks (for me anyways). If I do find a way...I'll post it here though.

    Could you tell what you didn't like about Classic Shell and maybe I can suggest some changes so you like it?

    Basicly everthing. The only reason I tried it out was because of its taskbar transparancy settings.
