|+||Windows Vista's Glass theme makes the borders of windows and the taskbar (and the Sidebar) transparent, however it makes everything opaque again when a window is maximised. There is a patch available that modifies the UXtheme files to set windows, the taskbar and the Sidebar to stay transparent when a window is maximised.|
|+||Full details are [[http://www.pctipsbox.com/make-maximized-windows-taskbar-transparent-automated-uxtheme-patcher/|here]]. Unfortunately it requires a reboot, but you have to expect that when you're patching system files.|
|+||**Note:** You will need to use the Beta 3 version of the app if you are using Vista SP1. Beta 3 is linked to at the bottom of the download page.|
