  • Hi,

    Based on my knowledge, Windows has no such features to implement what you would like.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    But I don't think that will work.

    there is no way this 3rd party application can tell where is the "objects".

    It's easy to make a window transparent.  But I don't know if it's possible to make objects opaque.

  • Hi,

    Which version of windows 7 are you using?

    Based on my understanding, you want to make the window translucent, right? If I misunderstand your true meaning, please feel free to let me know.

    I suggest you enable the Aero desktop experience to test it.
    What is the Aero desktop experience?

    I'm using Win7 Pro.

    I'm using Aero.  That only affects the window's frame, not client area.
