Windows 7: Anyone know how to make maxed title bar solid black?

16 Jun 2009   #31

Windows 7 64-bit

I'm running 7201 x64.
It's getting the taskbar black on maxed windows that I want.
The thing is that certain apps like Photoshop, Lightroom, Ableton Live, or Capture One etc. look really bad because the title bar and taskbar have distracting aero-glass showing the background into the app and it looks really messy largely because of their dominantly black/dark grey appearance. Having said that, apps like Office 2007 look odd with solid black, so what is needed here is an option from MS.

How do you make a Window title bar opaque?
First, Windows Help sucks. I searched this forum for "title bar opaque" and got hundreds of posts, none of which address my question. I don't like the semitransparent title bar as icons don't show up well on it. I want it opaque, preferably solid white, so I can see my icons. Does anyone...
Make taskbar/title bar black when a window is maximized
Hi! Is there a way to make the taskbar and application title bar go black when a window is maximized, like it was in Vista ? I find it very distracting to see what's behind the maximized window (there is a reason why I maximized it). I think the decision to have only transparent window elements...
