1. Download the utility from its source:

  2. Extract the files from the zipped folder. If the Windows SmartScreen appears, click More info and then click or tap Run anyway.

  3. Finally double-click WinaeroGlass.exe and watch your screen change to glass. That’s all there is to it.

Two things to keep in mind though: the translucent effect last only as long you are signed in to your account. If you sign out or restart your PC, you’ll need to repeat the process. There isn’t any blur in the transparency like you used to see in Windows 7, but hopefully that will change in the future. All content on this site is provided with no warranties, express or implied.
