It works on 1909, you have to restart explorer.exe; but it only makes the main area of the window clear. The ribbon and the title bar are still solid.

To make the ribbon clear: Install oldnewexplorer

For the title bar: Aero Glass (*urgh* which costs and makes sure you want to pay for it!)

And Cracked version of Aero Glass will broken and it didn't automatically download PDB files so i have to download it manually to get the Aero Glass working again.

wonderful program, thank you so much for sharing!  :love:

i'm not sure if you're still available to help with troubleshooting though but i have a question: does this work with any program?  i listed a few more processes to be skinned besides explorer and the command prompt but they don't seem to be working (in particular, i tried sublime text and launchy).  does this program only work on native windows apps, or am i perhaps using the wrong process name for these programs?

Hello, any of your recommended themes above has context (right click) menu transparent?
Thank you!

Can you make an option to apply to all processes but the ones on the list? I have a fully dark theme and I think I just love the effect too much.. You should remove the list limit too

(Edit: nvm I'll grab the original AutoIt script and modify it myself. Don't worry)

Can you post a link of your recompiled program? I can't find the AutoIt script.
pablexworld's avatar
Sorry for taking so long!!! I just didn't know to check notifications... I lost my recompiled program, and I never had BGE's source to begin with. But you can use this:…
Glass CMD is actual sourcecode, and you can modify and recompile it to fit your individual needs. Enjoy!

Hey, since Windows 10 1607
the glass effect dont work as good as before. Most of the time the windows arent transparent but if you swipe with another window over them they get transparent. Anyone here who knows a solution?

It doesn't work on Windows 10. I tried everything I could and still get the Black background opaque. Just black and not transparent.

You have to have AeroGlass installed for it to work on Windows 10. You can get that from

The one for Windows 8.1+ works on Windows 10.  Also, some windows 10 themes don't support Black Glass Enhanced at the moment.

If you're on build 10586 (aka v1511, aka November Update) you'll get an incompatability message fromAeroGlass upon login, just ignore that, it should still work.  Also, I would suggest finding working symbols if you do use it else even the themes that do support Black Glass Enhanced will leave a lot of elements behind when dragging windows.
