    How to Enable Taskbar Clear Transparency with TranslucentTB in Windows 10


    Windows includes a special application desktop toolbar called the taskbar that shows on the bottom of a display screen by default. The taskbar allows you to find, see, open, and switch between your apps. You can also see the specify how taskbar buttons group together when you have more than one window open.

    Users can turn on or off transparency for the Start, taskbar, and action center for only their account in Windows 10. When users turn on transparency, it will have a blurred acrylic effect by default.

    TranslucentTB offers you control over the appearance of your taskbar. You can customize the effect and color of it, and combine states (maximised window, Start Menu open, Cortana open and Timeline open), each one with a customizable taskbar appearance to reach a dynamically changing and visually pleasing taskbar.

    This tutorial will show you how to use TranslucentTB to enable clear transparency on the taskbar for your account in Windows 10.

    If you have Maximised window enabled... and have a browser maximized, it will turn the taskbar back to default. I had to uncheck enabled and it went back to clear with Firefox taking the whole screen(not FS). *Wink

    This is using the app from the MS Store.

    May be part of:

    Dynamic modes (these can be used together and each of them provides a taskbar state and color you can customize):

    • Dynamic Windows: Will change the taskbar to a different appearance if a window is currently maximised.
    • Dynamic Start Menu: Will change the taskbar appearance when the start menu is opened.
    • Dynamic Cortana: Will change the taskbar appearance when Cortana (or the search menu if Cortana is disabled) is open.
    • Dynamic Timeline/Task View: Will change the taskbar apperance when the Timeline (or Task View on older builds) is open.
