Raimeter

Hey guys,

Really important post today - Giving you an intro into the use of Rainmeter to add unique skinable gadgets to your desktop, to keep you informed of all your PC particulars, or simply to make it look AMAZING!

First step, head over to rainmeter.net and download it for your system!

Here are the samples they provide as to how you can make your desktop look:



And, here's how mine looks with my personal touches!


All you need to do is install Rainmeter, find it in the taskbar (near your clock on the startbar), change the skins, and open and close modules as you see fit - Hardly anything for me to explain really, and their forum and readme files are fantastic.

Make sure to check the Raimeter forums for custom gadgets and skins - The Circular clock, the calendar and the CPU/RAM/Network meters are all custom! If you want details of these, feel free to ask

Till next time,


Mike.

  4. I used to use Rainmeter, and it was awesome. Unfortunately, my laptop didn't enjoy the energy hog, so I got rid of it. If I ever get a desktop though, I will be sure to pimp it out.

  8. I use Rainmeter on my PC

    It's much prettier as well as less clustered than Window's plain interface

    you can do all types of customizable things with it which effectively makes it 'your' desktop.

  22. Love rainmeter's look, hate rainmeter. I guess I just couldn't figure it out, which is odd since I'm no novice at the computer, but I just couldn't work with it. Props to anybody who can use and customize it, looks great.
