Our friend joergermeister is running Windows 10 on this desktop, but as always tweaked it to look and work the way he wants it to, and the end result looks great. If you like the look – or even a little – here’s how to get one for yourself.
First of all, since this is the Windows desktop, Rainmeter is par for the course, and this getting started guide will get you through the basics. It’s a little out of date, but enough to get you started with the skins and tools below.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, here’s what you’ll need:
- Wallpaper shot by Toronto Matthew Wiebe on Unsplash
- Tool setting and monitoring system for Rainmeter for Windows
- Simple Clean Rainmeter Skin for Clock & Music Display
- MinimalOne Weather Skin for Rainmeter for Weather Display
- Ecqlipse 2 icon pack to replace system tray icons
- Glass2K utility to enable transparency of the taskbar and start menu.
- Neiio ‘s WhiteNoir Visual Theme for Windows
Overall, this is a beautiful picture. I especially love the visual style and transparency of the taskbar and start menu, which is something I could grasp even if I don’t customize the rest of my desktop to the same extent, but it still looks great. If you have questions about how this is all done, or want to know what this skin looks like exactly what it looks like, click on the Flickr link below to go to the joergermeister page and ask.
