Now you can have acrylic menus in Windows 10! See how!

When Microsoft isn’t doing what we want there is always someone to do it. That’s exactly what happened to a new app that allows us to have acrylic menus in Windows 10 to transform the visual experience of that operating system. This is already present in Windows 11 and in practice it allows you to see the background through the various menus.

If you were dying to get that Windows 11 look on Windows 10, everything just got easier. This is due to an application called AcrylicMenus. It’s available for free on Github and works really well. In fact, we just have to install it and that’s it. Best of all, it converts virtually any Windows 10 context menu.

It is true that this app is experimenting at the moment and can still count some bugs. However, from what I saw, I saw nothing special.

It’s strange that developers have been very focused recently on improving various aspects of Microsoft operating systems. If the above option is for Windows 10, there are other new additions for Windows 11.

The Windows 11 taskbar does not support drag and drop. In other words, we can’t drag a file into an app in the system tray to open it like we did with Windows 10. While this may seem like a minor matter, it confuses a lot of people. After all, we got used to it for a long time. Thanks to an app, this much sought-after function for the Windows 11 taskbar is now back!

App solves the big taskbar problem

The Windows 11 drag and drop app to the taskbar (fix) solves the problem and adds this functionality. It is active in the background and has a great advantage. It doesn’t change any registry keys. In fact, you can only change one, but only if we choose to start automatically. In addition, it does not inject DLLs into other processes. In other words, it turns out to be a very isolated, secure, and portable solution.

The program recognizes whether we press the right or left mouse button and checks which application the mouse has over it. If the cursor stays in the same area for a certain number of milliseconds, it simulates the Win + T combination and the arrows to restore the desired window. All of this is done by a rather complicated method. However, we did not notice anything. This application supports multiple screens, autostart and has many configuration options. Now, if you want to install it, you know it’s available here.

The taskbar was a topic that was talked about a lot in Windows 11. This is because Microsoft made many important features disappear. Moving the bar from the bottom up or sideways is still the same as the other. Well, removing some features like the one solved by this application was a huge mistake without a doubt.
