rev3rsor's minimalist desktop! by rev3rsor rev3rsor's minimalist desktop! by rev3rsor
As per the title, this is my new/current minimalist desktop!

Background: until recently I've been using the one laptop for home and school, and because of my external monitor, I've been able to work on it while having Rainmeter widgets or something static (e.g. a textbook) on the second, smaller laptop screen. With a new smaller, self-contained laptop I've wanted to change my setup so here it is! My main focus was keeping the function the same: recycle bin and network usage stayed where they are, while I made a couple of CPU and RAM skins for the taskbar.

Not bad. Just enough rice. This is how a Windows 10 desktop should be styled.

Thank you very much! I've got used to this look after using it for a while now too.

Hi, how did you solved the problem that the taskbar is always in the foreground? Mine is always in the foreground so I can't reach the Dot launcher when I place it like you :(
Anyways, nice ideas!

Hey, thanks for visiting! So you can change the position to "stay topmost" in Rainmeter to get it on top of the taskbar; the drawback is that you'll still see it if you do anything full screen. :)

Thanks for the watch! You'll need to install Rainmeter, then each of those links (that are skins) have a download for a .rmskin file. Then, you can enable them within the Rainmeter program.

Right click on the icon, right click the program's name, click 'Properties', then 'Change Icon'. You'll need to restart Windows Explorer, or restart your computer, to see it changed though.
