Windows 11 includes fancy fresh transparency effects in its windows, taskbar, as well as some menus. However, if you don’t happen to like them, you can easily disable translucent interface elements in Windows 11 with nothing but just the flip of a switch. This article will show you how to turn off transparency in Windows 11.
First, open Windows Settings by searching for “Settings” in the Start menu, then click on the Settings icon. Or, you have the ability to use the keyboard shortcut of Windows + I to access the settings app.
When Settings opens, click on “Accessibility” in the sidebar, then click on “Visual Effects”, this can be found on the right of the Settings window.
Under Visual Effects settings, you have to toggle the switch beside “Transparency Effects” to “Off.”
After you do that, Windows 11 will change all transparent windows to opaque. Your settings will be saved automatically, so it’s safe to close the Settings window.
If you don’t want to use Setting to disable Transparency, you can use Personalization.
How can you Turn Off Transparency in Windows 11 via Personalization Settings?
- Right-click on the desktop, this will open a menu.
- Click on Personalize
- Personalization settings open
- Select the Colors tab
- Then toggle the Transparency effects switch to Off
- If you ever want to turn the transparency effect back on, follow these steps
- Open Settings, then navigate to Accessibility > Visual Effects and toggle the switch “Transparency Effects” to “On.”
- If you want to disable or enable transparency effects in Windows 10, you will be able to find the option in a slightly different location, navigate to Settings > Personalization > Colors.
