How to Disable Transparency in Windows 10

One of the changes introduced in the new Windows 10 April 2018 Update is a significant expansion of transparency effects in the operating system. Applications and utilities such as the Settings app now feature a frosted glass-type transparency that lets the user’s desktop wallpaper, or any apps positioned in the background, shine through parts of the interface.

This new look, called Acrylic is a Fluent Design System component that adds physical texture (material) and depth to your app. But while the transparent look can be quite striking with the right wallpaper, it is very different from the look and feel of previous versions of Windows 10.

Fortunately, the transparency effects can be turned off, providing a simpler and cleaner interface better suited to some users’ preferences. Here’s how to turn off transparency in the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.


Launch the Settings app by pressing Windows + I keys and head to Personalization > Colors.

Scroll down on the right side of the window until you see the More Options section.



The first item listed there is Transparency effects. Click the toggle button to switch it off and you’ll immediately see the change take effect.



It is now completely opaque, which some users may find to be cleaner and more consistent.
