Hello,

Can I make my taskbar of Windows 7 so that it is transparant and I can see my desktop into it? I found a program Chameleon Window Manager, is that good? How must I set it up then?

I'm not familiar with the program you found, but you could try the following...

1. Right-click on your desktop
2. Select Personalize
3. Click "Window Color" (it's along the bottom)
4. Enable Transparency and set the Color Intensity to the minimum (fully left)
5. Save changes if you like what it's done (you should see your desktop image; though slightly blurred).

Can I hide the taskbar that you only see icons?

If you're talking about the icons on the taskbar itself, I don't believe the taskbar can be changed that significantly. However, you might be interested in enabling "auto-hide" for the taskbar. This will make the taskbar hide itself when your mouse pointer isn't near it.

To enable it, right-click on the taskbar and select "properties." Look around the window that comes up for "auto-hide"

But then you don't not see the icons. xD

You do, but only when your mouse pointer is near the bottom of the screen (assuming your taskbar is along the bottom)

Yes, but then are the icons also hidden. I think I let it so.
