Windows 7: taskbar start menu transparent glass

If you have transparency enabled, your windows should be somewhat transparent already.

I know you can make the windows seem more or less transparent by tweaking the hue and saturation sliders under the Color Mixer menu.

Hi, Bongo,

I declared some ten hours ago that I would post how to run the Simplified Chinese program which would enable the clean transparent start menu.

There was too much addive device to install that program as well as after being installed. For this reason, I deleted my original reply.

After some research, I found that it should be very simple for us to have that effect:
1. Extract the transparent theme from:
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
2. Remove the additive device in the .theme file, then save it.

I will try it with a "Clean Windows 7", if it works, I will upload the theme as soon as possible.

The following is my way to apply the totally transparent start menu:

1. Adjust "for best performance" of the Visual Effects in the Performance Option.

2. Disable UAC in the Control Panel.

3. Take ownership of the C:\Windows\Resources.

4. Run the UniversalThemePatcher as sergiogarcia9's tutorial "Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes" , then restart the computer.

5. Download the "start menu transparent theme.rar" from my SkyDrive. (I hope the link works....)

6. Extract the rar file, and copy the AaeroA file folder and the AaeroA.theme into the file folder of C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

7. Go back to the Performance Option to set the Visual Effects back to "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer",

8. Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes, and click the "AaeroA.theme ". OK, the transparent startmenu will appear right away, and we can customize our theme now.

For example:
taskbar start menu transparent glass-70.jpg

And with some modfication, we can have better effect, certainly:
taskbar start menu transparent glass-snap1.jpg


Hope it works for you, too.
