    Now that you mention it, yes. I did also add the SystemUsesLightTheme DWORD with a value of 0.

    (In HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\Personalize create a SystemUsesLightTheme DWORD and set it's value to 0)

    ??? Where's the logic behind that???
    That's just more confusion in my opinion.
    Logic ... you want logic? ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    MS set the policy, I figured it might explain why some people have to add the key while others don't.

    Brink added a tut: Start Menu and Taskbar Blur - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    This sure is fun stuff, eh wot!

    Your tweak in post #3 works like a charm Edwin, another good one would be the clock & calender.

    PS: I gotta spread the rep around.

    Guys, has anyone been able to disable blur transparency in build 10158?
    The registry key is missing just as in 10147. I'm a sad puppy right now, because I don't like the blurred transparency

    It's not that we can't enable/disable transparency, it's we can't get rid of the blur that comes with it

    Build 10159 is all the same

    I thought you might mean that. Darn, was hoping for an easy fix.

    There's a post on the MS community forums re: 10.0.074 which is the reverse of your situation.

    The start menu may not blur after user switches from start screen. - Microsoft Community

    Things have changed since that build but the bread crumb suggests

    try using full screen start (restart machine?) then not using full screen start (restart machine?)

    Guys, I know it's probably too late for this, but if somebody feels like upvoting it, I have created a new suggestion on Windows Uservoice.
