  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.

    Stop min/max of app from taskbar click

    Stop Controlbox (Min/Max) Mouseover

    Since I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 the Min/Max buttons now require a mouseover to show
    (ie they are NOT always visible). In addition, they are now colored with a light blue background
    and the close button has a light red background.

    I do NOT like the controlbox mouseover feature.
    Any way (or a Registry setting) to shut it OFF.
