Transparent Taskbar is the Best Taskbar Skin!

Customize your taskbar with transparency effect and reveal striking beauty of Windows desktop!

Actual Transparent Window lets you apply a transparency effect to any window in Windows® 2000/XP/2003/Vista. The transparency effect allows you making any window semi-transparent, with any transparency level being easily adjusted from 0% (not transparent, or opaque) to 100% (fully transparent, or invisible). It looks very impressive and can be highly useful with such windows as the Windows® taskbar, Winamp, the Start menu, drop-down menus and lists, any instant messenger and even application windows.
