Sadly, that doesn't work since there is only option to make the windows transparent *when dragged.*

It works nicely with the taskbar and dragged windows. I think what rcxAsh meant was that he added applications he wanted to make transparent in the applications tab and then changed the settings from there. I'm not sure if this is right, but it is what i take. If this is the case, then you can't get normal windows explorer windows to be transparent.

I suggest trying the program Acutal Windows Manager. It is commercial software, and therefore is not free. You can check it out at http://www.actualtools.com/windowsmanager/

Hopefully that will work.

Are you sure? I have this option in my nView properties. Here's a screenshot of the settings page.
Spoiler:

See under the Launch Settings? I specified transparency to be on for MSN messenger.

It can make program windows transparent, but only for programs. And to add all of those to that list is awful tedius work.I think what Wirhe wants is all windows to be transparent when you open them. Unfortunately, nView can't do this (to my knowlege)

O ok. If he wants all windows transparent, then he'll need something different probably.

I thought that he just wanted his explorer windows transparent.

I have an ATI card and it comes with this program called Hydra Vision. I was able to make it where i have transparent windows when you drag them and transparent menus. I dont have all the updated drivers for it though so i might be able to do more. I'll let you guys know ^^

Yeah, thats just about the same as the nVidia nView options. That would be enough for me (thats actually what i have) but some people would like all their windows transparent. Just a matter of preferance. Does Hydra Vision do that too, or only when dragged?

Yeah; all windows transparent, but also by selection. For example: have Mozilla and this board 20% transparent and regular explorer windows 50%. I know WindowBlinds could make this in one of their old versions, but it is now unavailable. I have also tried some of those basic tools, but none of them make the windows open up transparent and require you to manually set it (which is troublesome).

Anyway, have to check that WindowsManager -maybe it does the job.
