TranslucentTB is a straightforward utility for Windows 10 that lets you modify the look of the taskbar with the addition of stylish translucency and transparency effects. AS the name implies, it increases the opacity of your taskbar along with multiple customizable options to select from such as color picker, dynamic modes, and taskbar states. It is suitable for many graphic designers, graphic artists, and editors so they can increase the size of their monitors and enhance the overall look of the desktop to look more aesthetic and pleasing to look at. 

The application doesn’t require any installation from the user’s end, all you have to do is download the application in the .zip package of the file. Extract it and double-click on the executable file to run the software.

Features of TranslucentTB

Portable with minimalistic menus
To begin with, TranslucentTB is a portable app as it doesn’t need any type of installation. To fully use the benefits and the features of the utility, simply download and unzip the package and run it, just like any other app.

Once the program is launched, it smoothly integrates into the taskbar and announces its presence via a tiny icon. Users should keep in mind that this application does not feature a user interface per se. However, it does possess an ultra-minimalistic taskbar menu that grants you a taskbar in your computer with a blur effect and full-transparency.

Switch to the aesthetic taskbar with few clicks
With TranslucentTB, you can modify the overall look of the taskbar, its behavior and apply various colors to your taskbar with basic command-line knowledge. 

If you want to revert things to normal, you can simply close TranslucentTB from its taskbar menu and activate the start menu and that’s it. Another great thing about TranslucentTB is that it has the support of multiple monitors. Sadly one issue which Translucent needs to fix is that its effects don’t apply to the Cortana search box.

Lightweight and look changer for taskbars
TranslucentTB is a great application that overhauls the entire look of the most iconic and important UI components of the window. There are rooms for improvement for this app that consists of options and toggles for specifically customizing the translucency percentage, color picker, and launch at the system.
