  1. Changing the transparency color of the start menu?


    In past Windows 10 versions the color of the transparent part changed with the color scheme like this https://www.groovypost.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/after-regedit.png , but now no matter what color I pick it's this washed-out lifeless gray in dark mode or same but lighter in light mode even after reboot: Is there any way to edit the registry or something? This is just lifeless & depressing. OS: Win 10 Pro build 19041.508 Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.31.0

    Start Menu Not Transparent

    I have the exact issue. And YES, I have ensured that 'transparency effects' is ON in Colors settings menu.

    The task bar looks fine, its just the start menu that is no longer transparent.

  3. Start menu transparency

    i currently have the transparency turned on and the colors are to my liking but I was wondering is there a way to make the background more transparent and to change the icons background color for messed up icons.

    What I want to do is make the main part a bit more transparent for the start menu area. If I can't make the background area completely transparent can I at least adjust the transparency of the background area at all. Plus I really like the icon background areas as well but the colors on some icons are incorrect is there a way to fix that as well. The color is fine but I need to change the ones that are incorrect. Plus can I change the transparency of the icons area in the start area also. Just curious.

    Hi,

    You can change the background color of the the Start menu on Settings. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Click the gear icon (Settings).
    • Choose Personalization.
    • Select Colors.
    • Under Show color on Start, taskbar, and action center, switch the slider to
      On.
    • After switching the slider to On, you can now pick what color you want or you can click the
      Automatically pick an accent color from my background checkbox to make Windows pick the color that complements the color of your desktop background.
    Kindly share with us the result after you perform the steps above.
