Market display question

Somehow I've set my market display window to transparent and can't figure out how to reset it. I know it's a fairly small thing, but it makes it hard to easily read all the market information when all the stuff in the background is visible also.

How do you reset the market window to solid?

thanks

In the top right corner of the window there's three buttons - an 'X' like in all Windows programs, a minimize button, and a 'Pin' button, which makes it transparent.

Note that you can also use pinning to locka window to prevent you from accidentally dragging it out of your prefered position.

Also note that the release on the 9th will add a "reactive transparency" so that pinned windows will opaque themselves when they have focus.

Really...finally, pinning will start to make sense (as the transparency was annoying in some windows)....

Transparency is a major feature for me. There's some windows I want immediate access to but do not want blocking my field of view.

#1 being local chat. Being able to see in lowsec when "local +1s" as we call it (a new person entering lowsec) is critical. In highsec for a player with active wars (or untrusted corp members that might be planning to backstab you) it's equally critical.

I have local taking up the rightmost 15% of my screen, top to bottom, and transparent so I can see space combat behind it.

I think there is still an option for locking pinned windows.

IMHO, if it is pinned it should be locked, so I don't know why this isn't the default.

But then I hate Win8 taskbar pinning because they too float around. I unpinned everything, and replaced pinned programs by adding an additional quick-launch taskbar like in previous versions of Windows (tip: hide text and enable only icons)... but I digress.
