If you frequently use the Command Prompt or PowerShell, you may be tired of their opaque app windows. They are functional, useful, but also dull. Another issue is that when you work in a busy office, people can easily see what you type, due to their opacity. If you are a Windows 10 user, one neat little personalization that you can perform is to make them transparent to the level you want.
