TranslucentTB Makes Windows 11 Taskbar Completely Transparent

The Windows taskbar spans from the left to the right of the screen by default. And Microsoft changed the default alignment to center on Windows 11. Compared to the previous Windows taskbar, the Windows 11 taskbar has also removed several options. What used to be easy, like changing the size of the taskbar, is no longer easy on the new Windows 11 taskbar. In this case, it is recommended that users use third-party software to make changes to the taskbar. The more popular third-party software for taskbars are Taskbar11, RoundedTB, or Start11. These software can help users to move the taskbar to the top and so on.

In addition to users who want to be able to modify the size and position of the taskbar, there are also some users who want to modify the transparency of the Windows 11 taskbar. There are two ways to modify the transparency. One is the option to apply transparency to windows and taskbars via system settings, but it is not 100% transparent. Also note that these settings cannot be changed if Windows 11 is not activated. The second is to modify the transparency of the Windows 11 taskbar through third-party software TranslucentTB.
