summary: Transparent or translucent PuTTY window
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: never: We don't ever intend to fix this.

A transparent, semi-transparent or alpha-blended PuTTY window. We think this is pointless frippery and would bloat the binary to no useful purpose.

There are third-party utilities which will do this for you without us needing to modify PuTTY; have a look at PowerMenu and also Glass2k. (Although these apparently don't keep the text opaque, which is apparently not what people want.)

Alternatively, there are several third-party solutions on our links page.

Audit trail for this wish.
