This way, I can be more concentrated on the window, not be disturbed by those transparency stuff in taskbar and title bar.

Yes I know I can disable window transparency but this is not what I want. In Windows Vista, system will automatically disable transparency when a window is maximized, and when no window is maximized, transparency will automatically come back. I like it this way, and wish to know if there is a way to make Windows 7 works like this.

When Vista came out many people were asking how to make window borders and the taskbar transparent, like how it is in Windows 7. –  paradroid Dec 12 '12 at 7:37
Create your own theme with vistastylebuilder.com/download.html which does what you want. –  magicandre1981 Dec 12 '12 at 12:52
Thank you paradroid, I know the fact about this, but I don't think it's right. And I also don't think cut entire aero glass off in the new Windows is right, too. And thank you magicandre1981, I'll give it a try. –  Basara Dec 19 '12 at 7:19
