I hadn't noticed that before. It's an odd "feature" and not sure what purpose it serves at all.
It's the same thing with the Window borders which are removed now (actually they're just invisible).
It's harder than ever to get a mouse to trigger so you can resize.
It's all just a bunch of (windows) designers testing UI features that were better in the past.
I'm guessing it's because rendering the Acrylic transparency is GPU intensive, so they're worried that people will open a bunch of apps that use Acrylic components and then wonder why their GPU fan is screaming.
It's clearly configurable - if you turn on high contrast mode or if you're in battery saver mode, you just don't get the transparency, ever.
I'd love to patch a DLL to make UWP always render the transparency. My GTX1070Ti can handle the load!

But done properly, the processing will only hit when the window is resized, moved, or changes Z-Order. So who gives a sh*t? Windows 7 did it far better, even though that was when I bitched about title bars not standing out enough.

You'd think. If video cards can render a full HD screen's worth of pixels 60 times a second when playing games, there's no reason it shouldn't be able to render a single frame of a smaller window that, once rendered, pretty much remains static.
I have Windows 10 configured to show the active window's caption in a different color (otherwise it's rather impossible to tell which window has focus when they're all white), but it seems that those rules go out the window (see what I did there?) with UWP apps.
It's Yiddish and descended in parallel from hochdeutsch- so the meanings somewhat the same. As I was given to understand the word, it's somewhat of a richer more diverse meaning. Explained by example rather than by definition. It makes more sense that way.
Example: Shcmukelah (any number of spellings) is, more or less, defined as a crude pejorative term "little penis". Somehow, though, when I was explained with conceptual examples, it was even usable in an endearing way as that was a potential implication. Very context sensitive language. Probably explains all the comedians with Jewish backgrounds. Comedy is context
There are some people who get along with everyone. Obviously, from my posts, you know I'm not one of them. But there are people who I don't get along with (and don't want to get along with). Unless one has some very special drugs, I don't think it's normal to get along with everyone - but what do I know.
Examples at work include a person who deliberate breaches my trust or are a predator of vulnerable employees. And, of course, the chronic liars. [Chronic idiots aren't included because, well, they're idiots]
This could probably be contorted into a survey question, but meanwhile, any comments (or more interestingly, examples!) ? Even those of you who claim you're described in the preceding paragraph
