Taskbar Always Transparent

I am having some weird glitch with the DisplayFusion taskbar. It is completely transparent, even though the DisplayFusion settings are set to 100% opacity. Disabling transparency in windows settings and Open Shell (for main taskbar)does not do anything to DisplayFusion taskbar. It does not have any glass effect, just completely transparent. Note that I use WindowBlinds to skin my window borders and controls. It also effects the taskbar but does not enable transparency. Disabling it seems to have no effect. How to fix this problem? Screenshots include the Windows 10 taskbar with Open Shell blur on and DisplayFusion taskbar, which looks like this no matter the settings in Open Shell.

Hi Isaac,

Strange, was the transparency setting you disabled in windows the "Transparency Effects" setting, found in the Personalization > Colours tab?

Thanks!

I wonder if it has something to do with WindowBlinds, but it's not a big issue, just wondered why it is happening. I can still use the wallpaper management tool to set a solid color behind it, though a blur would be nice.

Hello,

Interesting, I tested WindowBlinds on my end, and I couldn't seem to reproduce it. Could you send me over a backup of your DisplayFusion settings? You can grab them in the options tab of the DisplayFusion settings window, using the "Export Settings" button.

Could you also send me over a screenshot of your WindowBlinds "Settings" tab?

Thanks!

Hi Isaac,

Thanks for sending those over. I still had no luck reproducing the issue on my end. If you close down any application that's configuring your taskbars, except DisplayFusion, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

The issue still persists after closing everything. I'm wondering if its the non acrylic blur in WindowBlinds settings, but I like the blur that way.

Hi Isaac,

What build version of Windows 10 are you currently running? Could you give me the name of the WindowBlinds theme as well?

Thanks!

Hi Isaac,

Ah yep, it looks like it's an issue with that theme. I've added this to our list to look into, so we'll post here if we have any further news on it.

Thanks!
