While using Windows 7 Ultimate, whenever I have a file open

This answer was rated:

While using Windows 7 Ultimate, whenever I have a file open in Word or Excel or other common program, the very upper top of the screen all the way across is always opaque and makes it very difficult to identify the filename or other pertinent information.
How do I remove this opaqueness so that I can easily read the information?
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.

Please try the following which if I am understand what you are saying will correct the problem.

Right click on a empty space on the desktop and click on Personalize.

Click on the Window Color link at the bottom of the window


You can uncheck enable transparency or you can Adjust your Color intensity slider for how transparent you want it. Slide LEFT = More transparent Slide RIGHT = Less to not transparent.

You can also change the windows color in these settings. You may want to play around with a darker color to see what works best for your eyes.

If you need further help please do not hesitate to reply back and let me know.

Thank You
