Specs: Vista SP1, 3.0Ghz,2Ghz
I have Vista SP1. I was at the store recently looking at some computers and I noticed clear task bars on the screens. I right clicked on the task bar, clicked properties and saw that there was the option to make the task bar have the Aero see-thru or peek-thru task bar option. I do not have this option when I right click on the task bar and click properties. I have Vista Ultimate! Is this something extra you have to download? Thanks.

CyberDude, I believe that that option is only available in Windows 7. Here's a link with a 3rd. party utility.

Get the AERO Peek Effect of Windows 7 in Vista and XP.

Thanks for the link! I guess I didn't realize I was looking at Windows 7. The desktop looks the same as Vista! Anyway, I have Aero enabled in Vista and I think I can get somewhat the same effect by changing the color intensity in Personalize, Window color and appearance.
