    Change windows 8 border color


    So my problem is after using the registry tweak to change the color of my taskbar to the one wanted, the border color becomes pure solid white which I don't like, is there anyway to customise this too? I would like to make the borders full transparent.

    And about wallpapers, will putting an animated .gif gives me an animated wallpaper?

    I checked the link and it says it is for 8.1 and it says "The prototype is not intended for daily use"

    ​So I think I'll be waiting for better alternatives.

    I'm sorry I didn't see you are using Windows 8 and not 8.1.

    Here is the same program for Windows 8 only.
