Windows 7: Taskbar Full Transparency

Taskbar Full Transparency

Hi,

Is it possible to make the taskbar fully transparent?

(Brink’s Enable Full Clear Glass Transparency method has no effect on the taskbar.)

Hi, aakshat,

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, those won’t do. The second one hides the taskbar, and the first one makes everything on the taskbar transparent (including buttons and clock). I just want the bar transparent.

Rand you can use Windows Style Builder and edit all the taskbar images so they are transparent and that will be the best you can get there, will be a slight faint line at the top edge of the taskbar which nobody that I know of has been able to get rid of.

Hi, Jerry,

I replaced all of those images you indicated with a fully transparent PNG, and this is the result. Have I done something wrong?

No you did not do nothing wrong, you are going to have that slight blur that cannot be removed.
I did notice a white stripes still on the taskbar, make this image transparent to Windows and Caption Buttons > Aero > Dwm Window > Reflections > Main

Nothing I edit seems to produce the result I have in mind. Thanks anyway!

You're welcome, I think I know what kind of results you're after at one time I was trying to do the same thing.
