    Start menu transparency


    Is there any way to change the transparency/colour intensity of the start menu? Classic Start Menu allowed me to change the transparency of the task bar and I'm left with this Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet So far i couldn't find any program/tweak to change this, hopefully you guys can help

    You can increase the transparency by doing as follows go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced and create a new DWORD and name it UseOLEDTaskbarTransparency and set it's value to 1 then restart or log off and back on. Delete the DWORD if you want to go back to default. This was taken from an askvg tutorial

    That only makes the task bar more transparent (Classic Shell already takes care of that) The start menu transparency doesn't change :/

Noticed Transparency on Start Menu. Is there other transparency ?
Is there other transparency, more like what Aero used to have in Win7 ? I know it will be in the final release though, but maybe it's already and I'm not looking in the right place. 15483
