is there any way to add opacity level? visibility of files extremely depends on the underlying surface.
a value of maybe 50 % would make everything readable. there are so many fine themes to combine with, 
but none are really usable to work with.

Hi, this application work great on my windows 8 thanks a lot. But i have a prob like the other, the app wont running at startup. I already check the box, add manually to startup folder and enabled it on taskmgr. And i have another problem, the app wont work when my notebooks (Lenovo Flex 10) goes unplugged. I already tried to set the power option to high performance when on battery and do the same too on graphic power option. Do anyone have suggestion on my prob?

Is there a way to change which background color that triggers the transparency? I need to add a specific color, since i can't use the Personalization menu when running 3rd party shells (disabled when you're not running explorer.exe as shell)

Hi... big problem. i used this a year ago, it worked fine. redownloaded it today, tried it, but my folders do not turn glass. they stay non-transparent black.
i have image here:…
ive gone through all settings and checked, i cant find anything wrong.
the theme i am using is 7tsp Elysium II
the theme you use (Midnight Glass) i cant use, since your link is dead.

Is it because of my theme or is it something else?
Others seem to have this problem but none of whom been answered.
can you say what the issue is, or at least that you do not know.

Thank you for all your hard work creating beauty for us

Hey, this theme looks awesome but i would love for some instructions to get it installed. Thanks
mikeloeven Featured By Owner Edited Jul 8, 2014
for those of us that need more than 10 processes hooked I was thinking why not a simple CSV file using double quotes as a text qualifier??

you would have to make no changes to the UI and could list process names like this

"p1.exe", "p2.exe", "p3.exe" and so on.

Just have the Main executable look for a file named processList.csv and if said file exists in the same directory as the executable parse it as a list of executables to hook in addition to what ever is set in the GUI.

additionally on a side note is it possible to add a setting to prevent the program from effecting control panel windows. there are some applets that become illegible with this effect but because they are technically part of explorer they are hooked regardless

Ya, I'm on Windows 8.1 and this would be awesome to rock. Thanks


This does work. You'll need to enable it each time windows starts. You also need to make sure aero-glass is installed prior to using it. Any way to make this run at windows start? I have checked the required box but I have to manually load it each time.
davetee76 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
Please update this to make it work for Windows 8.1. That OS I'm using and it only makes the text transparent

Hi guys, i need help. It works perfectly, but i need some of the process names. For example the context menu, the start-> all programs tab's and the search results in the start menu to make them transparent too. I can't seem to find it. Some sort of a list for processes like these would be very helpfull. And it's made my chrome url tab black witch kinda buggs me, is there a process or a way to make it transparent too ? But besides that this app is wonderfull, big props to the developer !!

Its working fine when my laptop is on charging/connected to power. But the glassy view stops if i unplug the charger. What to do?

same is the case for full glass
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It worked perfectly for me. Thanks!
Question: Can you add these two features please?
1- Use another RGB color instead of black for the glass
3- Accept all processes for glass theme, not just 14 processes.
Thank you! ;)
duke1921 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
seriously, that wouldn't be helpful i case of video players..:P
DRSDavidSoft Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, but not in case of choosing another RGB color instead of black to map the transparency...
Also I meant something like a checkbox, so we can trun on and off the "all processes" feature. ;)
AustinShaff Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
It won't work for me. I've looked everywhere on how to fix it. Any help? Instead of the background of things going transparent, the text does. I can barely read the text. Any help?

Is it possible to set own color that should by replaced by glass ?
xvEDGEvx Featured By Owner May 26, 2013
Thanks bro, what a cool effect. Just another way to set my computer different from others and say "Pow" how do ya like this. Come getcha sum! Yeah if you open multiple windows it can be a little hard on the eye to brain function. But I've found a way around that too. And if worse comes to worse I can always right click it in my "show hidden icons" thing and close it. Simple, effective, badass. Thanks again.
wimwam1337 Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Student Digital Artist
love your work but with some programs the glassy effect is way too much. mayebe you could add a function where you can change the amount of transparancy?
p1n0y4life Featured By Owner May 10, 2013
