Transparent PowerShell Background in Windows 10

After some recent blog post, where I posted some screenshots of my PowerShell console, some people were asking about how I made the background of the PowerShell console transparent. Well this is very simple, Microsoft changes a lot on the Command Prompt and PowerShell in Windows 10.

Simply right click on the title bar of the PowerShell console or CMD console and click on properties.

PowerShell Options
