StartAllBack: "Static Transparency"

Is there a way to configure StartAllBack to have a "Static Transparency" level or percentage option for the taskbar under the Taskbar, Tweak behavior and superpowers section? I love the "Dynamic transparency" option, but wondered if there was a way to have an option within StartAllBack itself for a constant user chosen transparency state? Request: - Static Transparency: with a slider or percentage option to adjust amount of transparency effect on taskbar. Also, if possible, it would be nice to have another static transparency option under the "Advanced" section to adjust the transparency effect of the StartAllBack Start Menu itself to match the effect of the taskbar, or to define a separate transparency value. Currently, I see no way to achieve this at the present moment. If these are options that are already configurable within StartAllBack, I sincerely apologize as I have been unable to figure out how to achieve these desired results. If the above requests are not reasonable, please accept my thanks for the consideration. I would purchase this product again "5x" over if I could have those above options working. :) Seriously! I purchased StartAllBack as soon as Windows 11 came out when Open-Shell was no longer a viable alternative. Thank you for your time and for a very valuable product! Cheers! -Dustyn-

I would also be interested in having a slider or dropdown menu for Dynamic Transparency! The only thing I see that it does is do 100% unless you put a window behind it then it goes to 50%. It would be nice to have 50% all the time, if someone wanted.

As mentioned, I looked everywhere including the Advanced page, and there are no transparency options. There's only custom start menu and taskbar coloring. No transparency levels. Hoping one day you may look to implement this request sir. :)

Okay, so in regards to my last response, I played around with the "customize appearance" and I was able to increase transparency a bit by setting it to 0%. The only problem is is that it's not as transparent as I'd like. Is there a way to increase the transparency even MORE? I would like a "Static Transparency" option that looks like "Dynamic Transparency" all the time. Totally clear like glass with the option to decrease/increase it to a custom level. The same would be nice for the Start Menu as well. :) I hope this is more clear to you now? I did not do the best job at describing the request.

I feel so silly. I too had no idea you could click on the droplet. And all this time too I was hoping for this requested change to be implemented... and it was already present. Amazing, thank you for showing how to achieve this. :)
