Hey guys

Preamble
First i want to say i love Classic shell. Having tried SiB++ for a week on Win10 i came back to CS.
What drew me back was the its fluidity and super smooth function. I found SiB to be slower, esp on an older laptop like mine. I can even turn off indexing /Windows search in CS and still search through all the control panel settings , which is Genius!!!

Question
Havinng said that , I found 1 feature particularly breathtaking about SiB and i tired to seach the forum here with no avail. But I was wondering if it is possible to make the TASKBAR transparent +/- Glass blur +/- the Right panel of Start menu.

E.g.

I did come across a skin from trala. and even gave Glass2k a shot but they both missed the boat on achieving the level of aeshtetics in SiB .

Any help is appreciated

There is a tab in Classic Start Menu settings called "Windows 10 Settings". There you can control if the Taskbar is opaque, transparent or glass. You can also adjust the opacity from 0 to 100. Also, if you use the Windows Aero skin or Windows 8 skin of the Classic Start Menu (Skins can be changed from the Skin tab), there is another setting on the "Menu Look" tab to control glass opacity of the right column.

You could also try this extra skin which does not ship with Classic Shell: http://winaero.com/blog/get-the-best-lo ... -skin-2-0/
