    I don't know how to change the sidebar background so that it is clear, not
    gray. Does anyone know how to do this? thanks!

    Is 'Aero' enabled elsewhere? eg transparent titlebars etc.

    Adjusting your theme or changing display options, such as transparency
    elsewhere may help

    Right-click desktop > Personalize > Theme

    and / or

    Right-click desktop > Personalize > Windows Color and appearance
    (NB if you don't see a row of colours there, then it's a good sign that aero
    isn't enabled)
