Everyone loves eyecandy! I was missing my transparent console windows, and found a nice way to have them again in Windows 7. It’s as simple as installing AutoHotkey and adding the below script. Let me explain…

Autohotkey has a method called WinSet that allows the manipulation of various GUI related settings. One of them being… you guessed it… transparency. Linki: www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/WinSet….

An here is the AHK script. Once the script is added and reloaded, it is triggered with Alt+Shift+T.

n=0
!+t::
WinGetActiveTitle, T
if n=0
{
WinSet, Transparent, 222, %T%
n=1
Exit
}
WinSet, Transparent, Off, %T%
n=0
Exit
