When Windows Vista was first introduced it had a unique and great feature known as Aero. This feature used to provide a transparent glassy look to all the Windows and other dialog boxes on which a user used to worked. In Windows 7 this technology is improved and users can modify this as per their requirements. In other words users can increase or decrease the transparency level of the Windows when working with a Windows 7 computer. Since this transparency level is a user specific configuration any user is allowed to modify it without any administrative privileges. As a user of a Windows 7 computer you can configure the transparency level of the Windows and dialog boxes by following the steps given below:

  1. Logon to the Windows 7 computer with the user account for which you want to configure transparency level.
  2. Right click anywhere on the desktop and click on Personalize.
  3. On the opened page click on Windows Color link.
  4. On Change the color of your window borders Start menu and taskbar page move the slider left or right to increase or decrease the transparency level as per your choice.
  5. Once you are satisfied with your configuration click on Save changes button to finalize the changes. (To permanently disable the transparency you can uncheck Enable transparency checkbox.)
