    Taskbar & Start Menu not Transparent


    Hi

    Windows 10

    Last night all was well with my computer but for the last few days I have had an update waiting to be done as I figured it would be a big one and it was took several hours to restart and upgrade. This is an older system so it could be an older update that was catching the system up being I just restored it so the update might be an older update unsure. In past I see others seem to have had the same issue following an update.

    Anyways I got logged back in after the update finished and I have noticed that the taskbar and start menu and also the alerts panel and such are no longer transparent. It's like looking at Windows 95 or 98 where it's a grey solid color taskbar.

    I googled it and did 2 of the suggestions and no good.

    1. checked the color settings to see if transparent was turned on and it was in fact turned on I turned it off then back on and that didn't change anything
    2. also added the following registry code to the registry for explorer and all that seemed to do is slightly change the color but not enough to make the taskbar and such transparent like it was before the update meaning it sort of match's the color of the wallpaper so it would blend in somewhat before the update not it just makes the grey very slightly transparent but not a matching color like it use to.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced

    New > DWORD (32-bit) Value

    Value set to 1


    Code:
    Is there any way to get these things back to normal transparency like they were before the update? Wasn't any custom transparency was just the default transparency that windows has had for awhile now where the transparency would try and best match the background image.

    Thanks
    Dave

    :)

    Start menu transparency -> Windows 10 ver. 2004

    I was wondering is there a way to make the background 100%.

    I have followed these steps but it doesn't work.

    How to Increase the Transparency of Windows 10 Start Menu and Taskbar

    I guess it'll work in previous versions.

    I know there are programs that do this but I don't want to use any.

  3. Transparent Windows Start Menu and Taskbar

    Hello.

    How do I enable complete taskbar and start menu in Windows 10? I tried the translucentTB thing but it doesn't have a feature that enables full transparency for the start menu. I also tried several methods from YouTube, but that doesn't work for me. Is there
    any registry tweaks? Thx.

  4. Taskbar & Start Menu not Transparent

    No transparency in start menu

    I'm using Windows 10 Pro & I've updated to the latest version i.e.
    1803 version. Before the update also I was having a non-transparent
    Start Menu, even after selecting the Transparency Effects option (
    Settings > Personalisation > Colours > Transparency Effects ), and I thought it to be a bug & waited for the next update. But now, even after updating to version 1803 also it was not solved. The taskbar's transparency is working fine, but the Start
    Menu
    is always opaque (except Full Screen mode). So, if there's any way to solve it, please say...
