Win 10 version 2004 Start Menu transparency

I haven't use the start menu transparency option at all on my pc before untill i upgraded version 2004 May 2020 update.

Some days ago i tried to make the start menu transparent but it doesn't work at all, i have tried several solution online but still not working. 

I edited the registry to make transparent but still not working, one thing i noticed is that When i edited the option "Enable Transparency" and change it value from 1 to 0, it only make the task bar transparent slightly and not the star menu, and whenever i restart or switch off and on my pc , the slight transparency in the task bar also disappear. Even In the window setting , personalization, colors, if i click transparency effect it doesn't make any changes at everything still remain the Same, no transparency at all.

What Could be the cause?  How can i make my start menu  transparent?  Or is it that transparency is not working in the may 2020 update?


I'm not with my PC to post screenshot, but my description is enough of what am saying, there's no transparency at all, at all. Please help?
