  2. taskbar tranparency

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. I will surely assist you with this.

    I would suggest you to change the desktop themes and check if you are able to see the transparent taskbar.

    If that doesn't help I would suggest you to end the explorer.exe and restart it and see if you are able to see the transparent taskbar.

    Please follow the steps below to restart explorer.exe:

    stop and start Explorer.exe


      • Right click on the taskbar and select task manager.

      • In the process Right click on windows explorer and end the task

      • Restart the task by clicking on the file and select new task

      • Type Explorer.exe and press enter.
    And see if it helps.

    Do let us know the result. We will be glad to help if you need further assistance.

    Windows 10 transparent taskbar

    Today I reinstalled Windows 10 using the latest ISO from MS site. When it booted at first, the taskbar was 100% transparent and very sexy looking. However, after some restarts and software installs, the taskbar is now translucent instead of being completely
    transparent. I went through all the Personalisation settings but couldn't find any option.

    Anyway to return the taskbar to the default fully transparent state?

    How do I get a transparent taskbar in Windows 11?

    Personalization Settings for Colors for "make Start, taskbar and action center transparent" is not listed

    I'm a tad confused. :/

    I have Windows 10 installed on a PC at work and two PCs at home (Home and Professional).

    But on my home PC the Personalization Settings for Colors for "make Start, taskbar and action center transparent" is not listed, but "Transparency effects" is listed and On; however this doesn't result in to the same
    Transparency of the Start, taskbar and action center screens.

    Why are the Settings options different or configured and listed differently on PCs running with same version of Windows?

    How many variations are there?

    Where is the definitive help (when "Find a setting" shows options that are not available in reality).

    Thanks
