Windows 7: Transparent Taskbar-How to enable in Win 7 Pro x 64

Transparent Taskbar-How to enable in Win 7 Pro x 64

I tried to follow Brink's instructions to enable taskbar transparency for my Win 7 Pro x 64 desktop PC, but was unable to do so because my list of visual effects differs from the one shown by Brink. (I have a Solid Black theme, but assume that is not the cause of the problem because using that theme I had a transparent taskbar until I ran Winaero Tweaker. Maybe I unintentionally chose a wrong option in that program, but if so I can't find the option concerned.

A screenshot of my visual effects window is attached.

Help would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards, Roy
