The more sugar, the sweeter. The more visual effects an operating system has, the more visually attractive it is. The problem is found in the teams whose resources are limited, since each one of the visual effects makes use of the graphics and processor of our team, using resources that we can allocate to the performance of the applications.

One of the most attractive effects, besides the animations, are the transparencies. Transparencies show the desktop background in Windows menus and compatible applications. Still, their consumption of resources is usually quite high, so it is a fantastic idea to disable them if our team is limping rather than walking.

Turning off transparencies means that the performance of our team will improve substantially since the use of the processor and the graphics are reduced to what is strictly necessary, which is to offer the required resources for the application to work correctly.

How to disable transparency in Windows 10

For disabling transparencies in Windows 10, we must perform the following steps:

We access the configuration of Windows 10 through the keyboard shortcut Windows Key + I, or we access it through the start menu and clicking on the gear wheel shown at the bottom left of this menu.

  • Then we click on the icon Personalization.
  • Within Personalization, in the left column, click on Colors.
  • In the left section, we have to search within More options the function Transparency effects.
  • To deactivate them, we just have to uncheck the On switch.

At that time, you will check as the background of the Windows configuration menu will stop displaying the blurred background image, and it will show the traditional gray color shown by the Windows configuration menus.
