Windows 7: Edit the diagonal highlights in taskbar etc?

08 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Edit the diagonal highlights in taskbar etc?

I searched and found an article on making the transparent bits in windows 7 fully transparent (i.e. without blur or the diagonal highlights).

What I'm wondering is if those diagonal highlights are a background image that can be changed in an image editing program. Can the transparency be tweaked so that it's non-uniform (i.e. solid at the edges and clearer in the middle)? Can the glassy stripes be replaced with something else?

Also... I know it might look ugly or confusing but has anyone discovered a way to make the background of a folder (not just the edges and title bar) at least partially transparent?

Totally transparent taskbar, removed highlights?
Hello all! I'm working on getting a nice minimalist setup going, and it's pretty good so far. The one thing I just can't seem to work out is managing the transparency on the taskbar. Ideally, I would have it absolutely transparent -- Windows only seems to let you go as high as about 70% -- and...
