How to make menus to be seen with Aero

Hello. I run windows 7 and i have the following question. Is there a way to make the menus(like the one when you right click on a folder, or just right click on the desktop) to appear transparent, like a glass etc., just like Aero theme is activated? I went to advanced system settings, at performance tab and checked everything there, but the menus still appears like in the picture i attached here. Thank you for your future replies!


Yours, emilyan2010

My question is if it is something from aero that allows menu to be transparent, without changing anything else. Thank for future answers!

Have a look at this one Moo0 TransparentMenu (Free) - Let's enjoy transparent menus! I recall using this one time in the past.

Hello, When I've got any kind of dialogue box open with text fields, I use the tab key to hop between the text fields. But, doing this also hops to any pop-up menus, which means I can change the thing in the pop-up menu using the up/down cursor keys, which might possibly be useful in a very few...
