how to have Full window transparent, not just border?

I can see nice transparency (with border and body) when I open "Add gadgets windows". Why not all other window like "my computer"? is it possible to add bluer transparent to 'my computer' like gadgets window?

I was going to wait for some of our experts to reply, but until they do, I am aware of 2 ways to achieve full glass:

full glass by ~phantommenace2020 on deviantART

and

Black Glass Enhanced v0.5 by ~curiouso9 on deviantART

For dark background applications. Credit to Phantommenace2020 and Curiouso9.

You can't make any theme transparent it has to be a full glass designed one. Go here to get full glass themes and the install instructions:
