Microsoft is upgrading the taskbar every time it releases a new version of Windows because the taskbar is arguably the most used areas on the Windows operating system. In Windows 10, Microsoft has added several new features to the taskbar, but by default, the taskbar is not transparent.

Talking about the new features on the taskbar, the first is that Microsoft has added a sizable search field in Windows 10. The search field will appear right to the right of the Start Menu button, and is home to a new feature called the digital personal assistant Cortana.

Not only does the search field allow you to search as well as open applications and files on your PC, but it can also be used to search for something via the Internet / web using the Bing search engine. Actually, there is a way for the search engine used by Google, but this time bingGo will focus on the tutorial on how to make the Windows 10 taskbar transparent first.

And the second new feature is the system tray area on the taskbar which comes with an icon to access the new activity center from Microsoft. In addition, Windows 10 also comes with a new date and time with a more beautiful and elegant appearance on the right of the taskbar. So, without further ado, here is a tutorial on making the Windows 10 taskbar transparent.

Windows 10 Transparent Taskbar Actually

Windows 10 already supports the Start Menu, taskbar, and transparent action center, but by default these features are turned off. The upcoming bingGo will also discuss how to make the Windows 10 Start Menu transparent without using third-party applications, but at this point we better focus on the taskbar first. In this tutorial, ApplicationsPC will share how to make the taskbar in Windows 10 transparent without additional applications from third parties.

Note: As in the image above, enabling the transparent feature on the taskbar does not make the taskbar completely transparent like in previous versions of Windows. You can only enable or disable the transparency feature, but you cannot change the transparency level in Windows 10. To do this, you will need a third-party application.

How to make the Windows 10 taskbar transparent

Step 1: The first step is to open the Settings app as all these settings can only be reached via the Settings app.

To open Settings, open the Start Menu, click the Settings icon (see image below). Or by pressing the Windows key + I at the same time.

Step 2: After the Settings window opens, click on Personalization.

Step 3: On the left side, click a color option. Then on the right side, turn on the Make Start, taskbar, and action center transparent options.

Note: By turning on the transparency feature, automatically the start menu and action center will also be transparent. As of now, there isn't a single application that can enable transparency only on the taskbar in Windows 10. The PC application will update this tutorial when it finds software that can do this.
