HOW TO: Turn Transparent CMD XP Vista Win
Want to have a transparent CMD( Command Prompt ) in your Windows System? These software might be useful to you. 

Microsoft has not changed anything in the Command Prompt window. Its same since ages. Many people use Command Prompt regularly. Wouldn't it be great if we can somehow make the Command Prompt window transparent and have glass in it?

Windows 7 & Windows Vista
  • AeroCmd - Make command prompt transparent. Windows Vista and Windows 7 need to run Aero Feature to work perfectly well. This application is developed by Solo-Dev.
  • AeroCmd.exe is a stand-alone program that looks similar with the command prompt.

Download: AeroCmd
  • Glass CMD - Developed by Komalo. Its a very small Autoit script which runs in background process  to enable the transparency of the CMD.
  • Since it runs in the background then it will make cmd transparent.
According to the developer, due to use of UPX compression some antivirus programs might throw virus warning for this app. There is no need to worry, its false positive.

Download: Glass CMD
Download the RAR file and extract it using WinRAR or 7-zip. Now run the EXE file and open Command Prompt. It'll have the glass automatically. 

NOTE:  To remove the glass, simply close the EXE file from its system tray icon.
