there is this feature with the Detonator drivers (don't remember which version, but most recent ones should support this), but this is only for when moving the window, donno if it's possible to have it at this opacity level for long-time use

I second that...Glass2K works fine. You can also make you start bar transparent with it...but beware! transparency will KILL some resources! If you have a lot of memory and a decent vid card, it looks real nice, though...

good luck taking screenies...I've tried to use the screen capture in Paint Shop Pro to do mine, and it won't capture the alpha transparency. If the trans is above 50%, it captures it solid, if it is set below 50% it won't show it at all :( But I'm sure other programs can do it, just not PSP...
