The stuff full glass by ~phantommenace2020 on deviantART can do it, only for any black or dark theme.

If this app is running and a normal non-black theme is applied, your explorer window will look hazy .

There is no other way than those two already mentioned in the thread.
  • windowblinds
  • FullGlass.exe with a black theme.
BTW, applying of themes only (not replacing the system files) does not mess anything.
