This tutorial will show you how to disable all transparency effects in Windows 10. By default, there is a translucent effect on Start menu, Store apps like Calculator, Paint 3D, Action Center, Taskbar, etc., in Windows 10. But, if you don’t like this effect and want to disable this transparency effect from all items (that support this effect), then it can be done with just a few mouse clicks.

There is an option in Settings app of Windows 10 that lets you completely disable transparency effect in Windows 10. Before starting, do note that the feature to disable all transparency effects is present in Creators Update, and not Windows 10 Anniversary Update. So, if you are using Creators Update, then you can easily disable transparency effects.
