Editors' Review

Though lacking in extras, this freeware quickly changes the transparency level of your Windows Taskbar.

Transparent TaskBar's miniscule interface makes it easy to adjust the transparency level of your Taskbar through a slider. At first glance it left us puzzled about how the program works, and we had to dig into the program's folder to read the included documentation. Also, right-clicking the interface brings up a pop-up menu that contains a few presets for adjust the Taskbar transparency. In our tests, transparency changes took immediate effect, and adjusting the slider to the highest level of transparency made our Taskbar fully invisible.

The program worked well, and even closing the program or restarting our computer didn't remove the transparency effect. However, the general lack of other features lessens its appeal. Over all, this freeware is easy to use and will satisfy any user who is looking for basic transparency features.
