Hello, that page was confusing for the file, here's the zip with a script+exe, still have to follow instructions, program has no help within, I checked it, gives icon in notification area.

Win+G to show the current opacity.
Win+O for 100% (default), I have Windows Key disabled and have to reboot to try it.
Win key hold + mouse wheel to adjust it.

Tested it as is, made my icons on desktop fade, so it was working, have to use again as you open new windows, they are at 100%, I don't think I would ever use this feature, but interesting, leaves the task bar/tray at 100% unless selected, muhahaha!

Hotkey to change brightness
Hi I was wondering if there was a way to bind a key to increase/decrease brightness of my laptop screen. I can use the regular FN+Fnkey combo but I am using an external USB keyboard so it would be easier to use a non FN key combo. I tried reading the scan codes of the FN+F6 key but I couldn't...
