    not sure how you have aero on the taskbar, as far as I know windows 8 doesnt support it, period.

    The remaining bit of aero is the transparency on the taskbar. I haven't explored all the options on right-click, cause mine seems pretty solid using a different desktop scheme...

    Aero has been removed. If you want to turn some of these features off you can enter advanced system settings, then the visual settings/performance menu. I'd leave the default though, looks fine to me.

    Aero has been replaced by a feature called Color Automatic. Right click on the desktop and choose Personalize. Of the picture groups some say Basic, some say High Contrast and some say Color Automatic (with a multicolored fan symbol). Color Automatic makes a window border or the task bar similar to the shade of the desktop wallpaper behind it, just as if it was relatively transparent. For instance, in wallpaper of a farm field, the task bar will be the color of the field, but a window border in the upper part of the desktop would be the color of the sky or clouds.

    I like Color Automatic better than Aero. To apply Color Automatic to one or several wallpaper pics, select a theme with it, then browse for a selection of images you want and save it as a new theme. I applied Color Automatic to a folder of 130 natural scenes and change the wallpaper every 15 minutes. Makes for a very cool desktop.

I am using windows 8 pro and I want the transparency looked like in Vista and 7. How can I get it???' Thanks.
Since Microsoft are going to put in a new UI "Wind" in the next version of Windows, will they keep the Aero UI used in Windows Vista/7. Because what if I get disappointed with the new UI? I might want Aero as an alternative. But, must wait and find out. :p
