    Is there any way to change the transparency in both navigation & main window or is it maybe theme dependant ?
    Hello, sorry for the late reply. You will need to edit transparency for both the active and inactive windows to change the default transparency in them. Stardock Curtains may or may not have those backwards so you'll probably need to mess around with them a bit to make it work as desired.

    The latest update doesn't include any custom changes at all and simply enables to Force glass explorer backgrounds option. So you can more or less tweak it around even more to whatever you want with it.

    To fully change settings you might need to use the advanced options in each tab that you choose to edit as some options are hidden behind that option.

    No need to load the visual style into curtains, just install Curtains from Stardock and follow Nimbi's instructions above and you will achieve the same effect.
