Top 15 Ghost-It Alternative and Similar Softwares | May 2021

Adjust the transparency of your active and inactive windows, taskbar, and desktop with this small application, which suffers from a minor performance glitch. Ghost-It places an icon on your system tray, with options to independently configure the transparency levels of your active window and inactive windows.
