The Windows taskbar has always been considered a great feature as it helps users pin the most important or used programs, display the search bar, display the date/time, and so on. By default, the Taskbar on Windows 10 is colorless. While Windows 10’s Settings panel comes with few options and some Registry tweaks that allow you to change the Taskbar color, it’s pretty hard to make the Taskbar opaque or transparent. But there is a simple tool called TranslucentTB, which can help you with this.

Regarding the features of TranslucentTB for Windows, this is designed to perform a specific task. For example, it makes the Taskbar completely crisp or blurry. It doesn’t matter what setting you are using on your Windows computer; It will overwrite it as soon as you turn it on. Besides, it supports multiple monitors. This means that the job can be done even if you have numerous monitoring settings. Alternatively, you can run this program from the command line too.
