I actually wanted it screenshot of an open window like my computer, but I can see which you mean by the taskbar.

Did you do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work?

Yeah. For some reason, it doesn't seem to have an effect.

Which one is you use Universal Theme Patcher or UxStyle Core?

Click on start button in the search box type Aero and look for Find and fix problems with transparency and check for problems.

Take a screenshot of C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder so I can see what's inside (as shown in my example below).

I tried Universal Theme Patcher. And for some reason, it just started working. Not sure what it was, but thank you very much for your time in helping me with this. Well...The theme, anyway. The transparency still isn't.


UPDATE: On a whim, I ran the theme patcher again, and now the transparency is working properly. I must have missed a step earlier. So again, thank you for your time and help.
