  1. Start Menu Transparency glitch


    I'm using W10 1903 build and I noticed there's a glitch with the transparency effect.

    As you can see in the attached gif, start menu opens in full transparency and suddendly become blurry, this does not happen with the notification panel (but on another laptop I got the same issue on the notification panel as well).


    Already tried to change theme, remove transparency, set the EnableBlurBehind property in the register to 0 and sfc, but nothing works to fix it.

  2. Windows 10 start menu glitch--it actually shows how transparent the elements of the UI should be!

    Start Menu Transparency glitch 331c1367-d50a-437e-92ed-81cca0fbec86.png

    Hey everyone and I just upgraded to Windows 10! So as seen in the picture above, there is a glitch that I encountered in the start menu that somehow made the start menu transparent.

    Here is what I did before the glitch happened:

    First I went into my personalization settings. Then I set my favorite color (In my case it is orange). And lastly I turned on the "show color on start, taskbar, and action center". Then, I went into the start to see how it looked. That's when the glitch
    occurred. I quickly took a screenshot of it (shown above).

    This glitch also shows how transparent the elements of the UI should be. It should be glass clear, like in Windows 7, and we should be able to change the color of the glass, just like in Windows 7 as well.

    So please, I want the Windows 10 UI to look as transparent as the start menu glitch.

    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.

    Start Menu Transparency glitch

    Start Menu Not Transparent

    The Transparency Effects was actually
    on when the screenshot of the smaller start menu was taken

    There is some transparency showing in my last image - this can be seen (barely) on the same line as the PHOTOS tile.

    Whilst running with a working setup - background image and full screen start menu transparency I did this:

    Transparency Effects off with the Use Start Full Screen
    on
    and solid BLACK background was generated.

    Following the generation of the solid black background (loss of image and Accent colour) above, I then tried this:

    Transparency Effects off and
    Use Start Full Screen on shows a solid accent colour, no image

    Transparency Effects off and
    Use Start Full Screen off shows a solid accent colour, no image

    Transparency Effects
    on
    and Use Start Full Screen
    off shows a transparent accent colour, no image

    Transparency Effects
    on
    and Use Start Full Screen
    on shows a solid black colour, no image

    Is it related to the IMAGE on a background, perhaps... anyhow, if you have reproduced, that's a start.

    Most times when this happens, the Surface is coming out of sleep. It goes to sleep with image and transparency working (full screen start menu) then when awoken, no image, solid black background - irrespective of accent colour.

    Make start menu small, then the accent colour is shown - solid or transparent - dependant upon whichever options have been set.

    Thanks
