Windows 7: Making explorer background transparent?

Making explorer background transparent?

Is it possible to make the windows explorer background transparent? Is the Window Blinds useful? Chaos Crystal is good, but everything must be set manually, and it makes the objects in a window transparent as well as the background, which is not good.

Yes it is possible without WindowBlinds . You are to use a theme with dark explorer background and FullGlass.exe running . Here is an example (FullGlass is included in the download ) Midnight Glass Nature Theme by *MrGRiM01 on deviantART .

WindowBlinds also does it , but here we generally dont use it, for various reasons . My reason is that I dont think it is worth the cost
