• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

Rainmeter - Desktop Customization Tool

Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

Rainmeter is a piece of software that allows you to create and place "skins" onto your desktop. These skins can do all sorts of things from showing the time and date, weather, CPU usage, Ram usage, networking, note taking, audio spectrum visualizers, controlling media, and a lot more!


The possibilities are almost endless, and can be extended through DLLs and other small software to be able to track more things like GPU usage and CPU temperatures.


Anyways, I guess people can share their own creations here, of either how did you customize your desktop or what skin did you create.

Here are my own skins I've made:
Hyper Bits 3.0 //minimalistic modular system monitor
Gravis 3.0 //awesomesauce audio spectrum visualizer; there is a pending update to improve the "flow", but I've been procrastinating ^_^;
Boosh 3.0 //bass audio spectrum circular visualizer
Edge 1.0 //high-res minimalistic audio spectrum visualizer
