Fluent Design isn’t your thing? Although many people enjoy the translucent glass, it can be an annoyance – and a potential performance issue on low-power PCs. If you don’t like the Windows 7 Aero throwback, here’s a quick tip on how to turn it off transparency effects.
Although the setting isn’t in the most obvious place, turning off the transparency is simple. The Ease of Access Centre, part of Windows’ accessibility controls, is where you’ll find it.
How to Disable Transparency Effects in Windows 10
The left sidebar of the Settings app now has an opaque background color after disabling Fluent Design transparency.
Click the “Ease of Access” tile in the Settings app (Win+I keyboard shortcut). Look for the “Show transparency in Windows” toggle button under the “Simplify and personalize Windows” heading on the page that appears. To get rid of the translucency, switch it to the off position.
The change will go into effect right away. Fluent Design surfaces such as window backgrounds and the Start menu will take on a single opaque color if transparency is disabled. Solid grey will appear, with the tone varying depending on the system theme you select. Return to the Ease of Access settings page and slide the toggle back to “On” to reactivate Fluent Design in the future.
