This option came with my Leadtek soft ware. But I find it annoying. Probably more trouble than your prepared to go to for something so transparent! ":O}

Do you mean to make the background of the text transparent. Because if so i have a nifty little program that does just that. If you want it i can upload it.

test out window blinds, i think that does it along with a bunch of other neet stuff that theyre just starting on. its costs a few $$ a year if you want to keep getting new stuff but if you want a pretty desktop and pretty windows its worth it.

The Object Desktop subscription is around $50 the first year, and $35 thereafter.

Object Desktop gets you...
Control Centre
DesktopX (Worth it for this along IMHO!) - completely customizable "replacement" for the default shell.
Icon Packager
Object Bar (With DesktopX, allows you to completely customize your desktop environment)
Object Zip
WindowBlinds
WebBlinds
WindowFX
Winstyles
and more...

As Stardock write new stuff, it tends to get added to the Object Desktop Network (ODN), and is hence downloadable. They also regularly update their programs, and the updates also come over ODN.
