I've installed and updated all my drivers but the windows have no transparency on them, the task bar does have transparency however.

Is this normal for Windows 8 Pro or should I be able to enable transparent windows somewhere?

*There is no 'enable transparency' in 'colour and apperance' window...

Transparency has not been removed, but has been deprecated. There is a complicated work-around available here

So this option:… ('enable transparency' is not visible to anyone anymore?) – meds Dec 2 '12 at 3:25
@USlackr The hack is only applicable for machines that have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and not clean installs of Windows 8. – Ganesh R. Dec 2 '12 at 6:08

Yes, Aero Glass is gone. An user claimed he hacked this and will provide a theme at the end of this year.

Tell me how you did that transparancy I was trying to get it for weeks and weeks with all sorts of margin, padding, placement hacks etc etc It's a secret for now
I can't go into much information, but if you would like to know more, send me a note
