For decades, the Command Prompt window looks and feels the same, while other programs have adopted Fluent Design which mainly has a transparent interface. Fortunately, we can make the Command Prompt window transparent as well.
Making the CMD window transparent would be great if you had a cool wallpaper. Changing the appearance won’t affect its main function as a command-line interpreter, so you are good to go.
Click the Start menu and type Command Prompt or CMD, select it from the result.
Right-click on the Command Prompt’s bar and select Properties.
- Navigate to the Colors tab menu. Lower the Opacity and click OK.
The system allows you to select the transparency level from 30% to 100%. You can also customize the font color, font type, and size.
In addition, changing CMD’s transparency level can be done with shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+Mouse Wheel (UP/DOWN) as well. This hidden trick also can be applied to Windows PowerShell.
