Reducing the Transparency effects on a Macbook can make your computer run faster. You can find below the steps to Reduce Transparency on Mac.
Reduce Transparency on Mac
Macbooks have transparency effects enabled by default, which imparts a frosted glass-like appearance to the drop-down menus and open windows on your Macbook.
You can check the impact of Transparency effects on your Mac by clicking on any Tab in the top-menu bar of your Macbook and taking a look at the drop-down menu.
As you can see in above image, the drop-down menu is leaking its background, which is giving it a frosted glass look.
While enabling Transparency effects makes the menus on the MacBook look attractive, this feature uses up resources on your Mac.
Hence, you can expect a reduction in resource usage and a consequent improvement in the performance of your Macbook, when Reduce Transparency Effects option is selected.
