Taskbar Transparency v2 by Prisoner7 Taskbar Transparency v2 by Prisoner7
Taskbar Transparency - Power User version
By Prisoner7.

This version lets you set your own hotkey and your own level of transparency. Hit the hotkey once, it sets the transparency. Hit it again, & it makes the taskbar fully opaque (not counting Aero effects, of course).

The readme file tells you how to use the program, but the program is so simple that you don't really need to.

It's still in beta stage, and there are "bugs" (I think of them as slight inconveniences) that I'll smooth out eventually. Nothing serious as far as I know.


Hope you enjoy it. :)

Are there any ways of making the taskbar transparent without making the icons transparent aswell?

This is really cool, it is just a shame the icons are affected too.

Sorry, it works xD, i tested on windows 8 pro

Note:
if you don't want the blank space when you maximise the window in the bottom side just make the taskbar hide automatically before make it transparent xD

Is it possible to run it at startup so my taskbar is gone when I launch my computer?  I don't need the taskbar and for now on I just press my shortkey but :-)

Kind regards

Kevin

8C it worked for me but....then i wanted to change the opacity so i went to the system tray icon and opened up the program again but i had to pick a new hot key combo.....and so i did and then i wanted to change it again so i do the same thing but i can't use either combo's i made so i just said ok thinking i could just close out the program and open it up again but now i can't change anything since i try to open settings and it just say's it's invalid because there is no hot key assigned....

Yea, I didn't really failproof this program when I made it...
There should be a ".ini" file in your Documents. If you delete that, it should reset all the settings & allow you to use the program again.

it would be great if you could make the taskbar as transparent as you want, leaving the programs' icons visible as well as the toolbars in the bottom right

At this time, I can't do that. I'm trying to figure out a way to do it, but so far, this is it.

I don't think it is normally, but that gives me a vague idea that just might work. Lemme go write it down before I forget ;)
