    Default Windows Desktop Customization

    Yesterday I posted a screenshot of my desktop, here is a guide on what all I used

    the desktop:





    Gadgets used:

    Bing desktop
    Default Windows 7 Weather gadget
    SysInfo gadget

    For the other parameters I used a software called Rainmeter

    And then enabled the Music & System Performance skins.

    The clock is an additional download

    And the wallpaper set

    Details on how to configure Rainmeter & some finer details can be found here:

    Also consider Samurize as a desktop add-on.

    Description from the product owners:
    Samurize is an advanced system monitoring and desktop enhancement engine for Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista. IT professionals, overclockers, gamers and desktop modders alike use Samurize for system information, weather reports, news headlines and much much more. And best of all, Samurize is 100% free!

    I wrote my own and it took a 2 days this was including learning how to use it.

    I used Samurize wanted me to do a lot of work, editing files in Rainmeter is comparatively easier.
