Can't change taskbar transperance on Aero theme

Hello
So i wanted to set my taskbar transparent but nothing changes no matter how many times i try. However, i tried setting the other default Windows Aero themes and they had the transparent taskbar and it was working until i changed the Wallpaper to my custom. This is the problem, i can't set my personal desktop wallpaper and have a transparent taskbar at the same time. Please help!

Unsaved theme will not change. You need to make changes to any of the 2nd row themes Window color, Sound, Background etc. then save it. Theme - Change or Save

You are getting the same transparency on the taskbar, it's going to the darker wallpaper makes it shows more in it like the White Reflections.
