    Win 7 Transparency mode

    How many here use Win7 in its transparency mode and why?

    Maybe I'm too old for that much new stuff, but it appears to be a gimmick to me, and uses far too much resource.

    Barbara,

    I use it and on my machines it doesn't seem to use enough resources to justify turning it off. YMMV!. But if it is causing your machine to slow I'd definitely turn it off it is after all just eye candy.

    I guess people use it because it's on by default and it just looks good.

    Ruirib is correct. I don't use transparency and don't miss it. To each his/her own.
