How to get more transparency in Vista

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I found this cool program that will make the taskbar and top window bar thing transparent even when maximized. I think it makes Vista look much better (duh).

Heres the link:

I use WindowBlinds. Personally I have love switching the look of my desktop around and such. I can make almost anything different degrees of transparent, blurred, or shade of color. Definitely worth the $30 bucks, and no more demanding on my system than the default skin that XP uses. Vista compatible too!

I think u can do right-click, Personalization, Window Color and Appearance, select the color u want or use "color mixer" below, and then use the "Color intensity" move left or right to select the style u want.

I've never really cared for the blinds look, but it does have some pretty good features
