Windows 10: Fainting window border color not possible after anniversary? Tips

    Fainting window border color not possible after anniversary? Tips


    Before anniversary "update" you could tint your border color around windows to almost feint using the slider "color intensity" to zero.

    It is not longer possible after anniversary edition, nothing happens at all when you use the slider like before.
    Before you could get it to very faint white almost not noticable.
    The only way to change it now is to lower saturation to zero, then it gets a darker style border. But it also changes the highlight color to way to bright for my liking.

    Is there any way to get the color intensity slider to work again after the update?

    It's always worth looking at or searching the Tutorials - very practical, clear.

    It's that slider I am using, does not work anymore since anniversary edition.
    It broke the color intensity, it does nothing anymore.

    And that was the thing that you could use to almost remove window borders without changing highlight colors etc.
    Rip.

    The blue border is much less apparent in the first- but the title bar colour is lost too.

    Yes you can hide it somewhat with changing saturation, the problem is it messes with other stuff.
    Before you could just lower color intensity and that was it, perfect.

    But since it no longer does anything in Anniversary I am trying to get that function back some how ;/
