Win 11 Taskbars Don't Match (Transparency Issue)

Hi all, so I finally bit the bullet and installed Windows 11.

The issue I'm seeing how is that the taskbars do not match the transparency levels set by Windows 11. See attached screenshots where you can clearly see where the multi-monitor taskbar from DF buts up to the Windows 11 default one, and the colors are different. I am able to "fix" this by going into Windows 11 settings > Personalization > Colors > Transparency Effetcs (settings to off) but this disables all system wide transparency effects which I would like to keep ON.

Is there any way to get DF's taskbars to match the transparency of Windows 11 taskbars so they don't look so odd when they are up next to eachother?

We've looked into this in the past, but unfortunately it's not something we're able to fix.

Sorry!

Bummer! I'm curious what the techncical limitations are here (just out of pure curisoity)

I did just turn transparency effects off then otherise that would drive me nuts over time haha.

I am noticing that the DF taskbars are about 1px or 2px higher than the standard Windows taskbar too -- see new screenshot, hopefully this shows it clearly.

We don't have access to the rendering API's that Windows uses for it's own taskbar, so we aren't able to copy the same transparency.

I've added that taskbar height issue to our list as well.

Thanks!
