Useful for having a mini spotify player on desktop. Displays computer / network / hardware information real time which comes in handy as well

Spotify icon Spotify Player / Rainmeter skins found here

On that list, "Sober Spotify" fits within the taskbar

It works well and makes my desktop look clean. I currently have my desktop skinned like macOS and it looks amazing

It started out working, but the widgets disappeared and I can't get Rainmeter to run again. What's more, someone on the skin site advertised UXThemePatch and I ran that though maybe I shouldn't have (they say it makes permanent changes that don't get undone without reinstall of Windows). Well, my system runs, but I'm struggling to find the skins and I guess I will look for themes.

You can get really cool, functional, good looking walpapers/widgets using Rainmaker. Check out the 'sonder' skin in particular.

Well, I haven't tried it yet, the description seems interesting and I like the way it says about customisation I may give it a try!

rainmeter is really nice to have i combine it with wallpaper engine and get really nice results the only issue i have with it is that it would be nice if it worked better while your gaming it made some games not playable so i had to turn it off you can also make custom shortcuts for applications if there is one not in the list so nice for productivity bit less for gaming
