So yeah, a couple of people said my desktop looked cool and wanted to know how, so I'm gonna show you guys how to make your desktop your own!

My current desktop
Spoiler:
 

I'll start with Rainmeter(link-http://xcyzbreathesmoe.wordpress.com/rainmeter/)
this is just a program that lets you do all kinds of stuff for your desktop!you can monitor your internet speed,check cpu usage,ram and lotsa other stuff!(more info on site)
Here's a pic of my desktop with lotsa rainmeter skins on it:
Spoiler:
 

Next is rocketdock(link is the same as above)
Spoiler:
 
This is like that bar that you see on Apple pc's,except you can customize this to your choosing!
You can change icons,bar colour,bar style,positioning and other stuff(mess with the settings to see for yourself)

Just download the install files(browse for them on the link),run them, and voila!You now have a fully customizable desktop!
You can also download new skins from the above link

Btw,my desktop doesn't look like the best of 'em,but it works for me,so yeah.
Oh yeah.All the info for download and installing new rainmeter skins is on the website.you could also search for skins on deviantart if you want to.

Ooh I have Rainmeter, but I never heard about Rocketdock.
I'should try that cause my desktop is cluttered with files. ^^;

By the way, they have a tag for CB Rainmeter skins if you want any.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

Suki will forever hate Win7 taskbar for it's continued impracticality.

No rainmaker for me, I try to keep all unnecessary stuff not running in the background. Very Happy

After seeing this thread I finally decided to go ahead and clean my desktop/get a rainmeter

Spoiler:
 


Have to thank Raven for naming those skins; previous ones I found I didnt like. I couldnt really figure out how to use Encoded, as they all came out black, blocky, and unsightly. I'm probably doing something wrong #em6

>Raven

I don't see a Raven here. You're welcome.

And Encoded is all blocky save the calendar, clock, and date options. I didn't like the blocks, so I went with Simplesentencethree since it's really customizable.

I'm using Encoded. Trill's using Simplesentencethree.

The two skins and more can be found at DevArt.

My desktop from 2 years ago. I took the cap when I was playing around with the themes and stuff (you can still see the folders with the skin related files there).

Edit: I also used Light Fiorenza, also from DevArt
