Second that. Here's my screen shot. It doesn't matter which window I have currently active... the glow is inconsistent. I just want the glow gone or much dimmer. I've tried turning off transparency per other advice, but it didn't do the trick. See the screen shot. All three should be the same or the one bright one be less prevalent.

It seems that you are using a dark color for you task bar. Have you tried the other preset colors to see if there is a difference?

I played with the color settings and intensity, but the glow is still too noticeable.

Changing the theme may fix it. You may try this :
