How to Enable Taskbar Clear Transparency with TranslucentTB in Windows 10

Windows includes a special application desktop toolbar called the taskbar that shows on the bottom of a display screen by default. The taskbar allows you to find, see, open, and switch between your apps. You can also see the date and time, system icons, and items running in the background on the notification area. You can make the taskbar look how you want, manage your calendar, pin your favorite apps to it, change the size, move it to where you want to display on your screen, and specify how taskbar buttons group together when you have more than one window open.
