This brief guide will walk you through the steps to make any of your programs transparent in Windows 2000 or XP. Transparency levels can be set on a per program basis, turned off and on again, and more.
- Download Glass2K from Chime Software. Glass2K is a small, free program. The installation is typical (next, next, done). Once it has completed, you’ll see a new icon in your task bar. Right-click it and select Settings. Note: the first time you launch Glass2K, the settings window may appear automatically.
- Make any changes you see fit and then click Save
- Now right-click on the title bar of any of your open programs or windows. In addition to the default pop-up (move, minimize, maximize etc) you’ll see a new window. From here you can set the transparency preferences for that window/program.
- And now your windows are as transparent as you want them!
