Call me old fashioned (okay, don't) but I don't want a screen full of confusing windows through which I can see a whole pile of windows behind those.

If I have the Wallet open with the Items list and then the Market Details on top of that plus a couple of more screens I can no longer read what I think may be the uppermost window.

Is there any way that I can make my windows do as I would like them to do; that is, those windows which are on top are easy to read without this new fangled Aero nonsense?

Open the "General Settings" tab of the "Settings" window and change the "Transp." setting of the selected color(s). Removing transparency will make all windows opaque similar to classic Windows appearance.

You could try adjusting the opacity of the windows to your liking in the settings?

Well, removing the transperancy of in Settings works a treat for the Wallet window.

If I open or select other windows they are still transparent and I can still through lots of windows through to the Wallet window.

The windows which I can't change the transparency include the Market View, the Cargo Hold, Personal Assets only partially works.

It should work for those windows. Just make sure you didn't pin them.

Does pinning here mean pinning them to a position on the screen or pinning two ore more windows together?

In my case nothing is rooted to certain position on the screen nor have I more than one thing fastened together.

pinning (when u have the "lock" setting turned on) keep it from moving or being re-sized

pinned windows are ALWAYS transparent

Thanks for that. Some of mine got 'pinned' for some reason.

Problem solved, now I can see what a hash I am making with my trading.
