    Taskbar darker?


    This maybe me being VERY picky but I am fond of the colour that I for the window of a program or whatever but the taskbar is darker, I understand it is the background of desktop making it darker but is there a way of making it the same colour as the window?

    Thanks.

    Disable Task Bar transparency usually with the aid of a third party application or applying a alternative theme.

    Could you suggest a program, except ClassicShell?
