Home » Intel, AMD driver bug makes your Windows 10 taskbar transparent

Many users who installed the latest Intel Graphics drivers noticed that their Windows takbar became completely transparent. Actually, most users do not perceive this unusual taskbar as a bug, on the contrary. Many view it as an improvement and wish their Windows taskbar could stay translucent forever.

TBH, with that background, it looks totally amazing! Maybe an option in Windows in the future without the need for some program to perform this??

This bug is present on AMD-powered computers as well, as this user confirms:

This happened to me as well. After installing the latest AMD drivers with 1803 support.

Well, it seems that the latest Intel and AMD driver update releases for the Windows 10 April Update share a common ‘bug’. Users actually view it rather as a nice feature than a problem. The bad news is that this is only a temporary bug. After you reboot your computer a few times, things should get back to normal.
