    Microsoft showed off quite a few new features last week with the Windows 10, but not all of them made their way into the public release that went out on Friday. One of the features not directly talked about but that you can clearly see in the image above is a Start menu with transparency.

    The transparency does add a bit of visual flair to the menu, and we suspect that it will be an option that you can turn off and on when it does arrive. With a darker background and properly sorted tiles, the Start menu looks much better than what most users have currently in 9926.

    Windows 10 Home/10 Pro x 3/Windows 10 Insider Preview ?

    I like the new changes, now if M$ let us change the color of Windows explorer with the same dark background & white text in the default themes that would be a bonus.

    I have already tried the high contrast themes but they also affect web pages & my FF speed dial & look hidious IMHO.

    I do like the transparent menu, looks a lot nicer than a solid colour

    We just need a transparent task bar to go with it

    I'd love to see a transparent task bar too. Sounds like time for Windows Feedback.

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
