  1. 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.

    :)

    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 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

    Start Menu Transparent When Set to Transparency Off

    Set start menu to be not transparent. It is still transparent. Set it to be transparent, then set it back to not transparent in hopes that would work. It didn't. Any help?
