    This is my first Customized Desktop.
    I kept it simple and clean.
    I wanted something inspiring yet beautiful enough t frame it

    I made a video tutorial

    I used the following

    The wallpaper here

    The Object Dock to replace the taskbar (Auto Hide) here
    With the Token Icon Set here

    RocketDock as a sidebar with web-apps and shortcuts (Auto Hide) here
    With actual iOS and other icons from many other Flurry-styled packs at DeviantArt here

    The Rainmeter system management and configuration tool for Windows for the weather, time, date, and search bar widgets around the screen. here

    The Encoded skin for Rainmeter, for the time and weather. here

    The iPhone Clock skin for Rainmeter, for the date. here

    The GoogleBar skin for Rainmeter, for the search bar (80% Fade In Transparency) here

    Plus, I was going to use fences. but ultimately I just got rid of all the desktop icons and hack myself into keeping it clean.

    Hope you like it.

    (If you want to recreate this, and the name of the month is just to long ex. December or September, you can substitute in the format the "%B" for a "%b")

      If this is what Windows 8 looked like out of the box, I'd use it every day.

      Hi Carr, Can you post your rainmeter theme online?

    7. androidblood 24 months ago | reply

      Any chance you can post the .ini files you used to get the font, colour etc on the date, time and weather?

      Do you maybe have a guide on how to set this up? I'm new to all these programs, and whilst not completely computer retarded I still don't really understand what I'm doing. I'm sure I could figure it out by myself eventually. Just wondering though.

      Install the fonts in the folder -> cl.ly/0b1T0x2d2h1O0E3f433g and then refresh skin
