I have heard that you can have transparent windows in Win XP. SPAMDoes anyone know how to set the window background color to transparent?

Thanks

I don't know if you can do this in XP alone but if you get glass2k (http://www.chime.tv/products/glass2k.shtml)
you can make it happen.

I downloaded and installed that program tonight. SPAMIts really cool but transparent windows take a ton of system resources. SPAMI have a 450 MHZ processor and 256 MB of ram and it was struggling a little bit.

Anyways...here is a screenshot.

I was never really big on the whole transparent window thing. SPAMIt seems like a lot of wasted system resources for not very much. SPAMIf I want to see the window behind my current one, I either hit Alt+Tab, or just hit my hot-button on my mouse to minimize window.
