Rate my desktop and post your own
this is mine. what do you think? i took it myself.
>Tristam is beast
I don't really see the point of the music visualizer, I think less is more. You can also see the time in 2 different spots which is redundant. Otherwise it's ok.
Nice and clean, but I have some suspicions about the practicality of this setup. Can you open applications with 1 click? Hidden task bar looks good, but is not user friendly.
Looks like a regular setup to me. The background is meh and there's too many icons.
Would be better if the actual background was fallout related like the rainmeter skins. Also have the same doubts about your missing taskbar as with the second guy.
This is just a wallpaper?
Hello I'm an autismo ricer and hacker. I watch too much anime and like retro ASCII art/10
Nice and clean, no distracting colors. Everything is organized neatly but it's still pleasant to the eye.
You have taste.
Rate? This is my second screen, my main is just a plane background.
Not bad. I just really thing the stock windows taskbar is ugly as balls
Also the fonts on your meters (ram, cpu, vol) do not play nicely with the ones on your clock/calendar.
Also the folders scattered around look cluttery as fuck
is there a way to do custom themes in windows 10 without getting some creepy slipware? and yes i plan to get a second 1080p monitor ASAP this is only temporary
not that special but i hope you'll like it
download an icon pack from deviantart
The wallpaper cycles through a couple different ones that work with the setup, eq auto-changes colors to match
any anons here know if there are some good ways to make my desktop even more minimalistic without making it inefficient? would appreciate any help at all feel free to give your inputs!
I would like a rate.
I do use hidden taskbar.
I would like to know how to make the trash hidden if anyone can help, but I have still yet to activate windows if you notice, so if it cant be done yet, I dont care.
Looks cool but lets see more
retro as fuck esp the color scheme
simple but very nice
Nice and clean, try to get the windows start button to go with the theme
too much information on screen
The way your desktop icons are spaced out feels reaaaal good
Good and clean, consider hiding desktop icons
Not very consistent and im not a huge fan of your file system icons. Solid 4chan css and music player
The rest of these are unremarkable
I used to be the same as you.
Then I was introduced to MusicBee Player by /mu/, my life changed forever after that.
Sure it's a little overly dramatised, but MusicBee is excellent as long as your music is neatly organised with album art and metadata.
>solid 4chan css
And switch your firefox fonts to use your system fonts.
The green is nice, but i'm not a fan of the gradient on that terminal bit. 7/10
Could be a bit more organized but i like your pape. 6/10
I think it would be great if it was centered. also get rid of that shit tier weeb pape. 7/10
I like that paintingon the right, looks pretty fresh overall. 7/10
uneven screens and you seem like a neckbeard. 5/10 also shit taste in women.
step it up anon, there's barely anything there. 4/10.
if this isnt a joke, you're absolute cancer. 2/10
cable management is an option. 8/10.
nice resolution. also manage those files a little better and move the trashcan.
nice pape. but I would put more colour somewhere. 8/10
the music visualizer kinda throws off the whole feel that comes with the background, also 12 year old taste in music. 6/10.
Play around a bit more an get something to look at instead of just the wallpaper.
Sorry if i offended anyone.
These are still default settings. I need a good temp/performance monitoring widget and desktop.
How did you collectively change all your fonts to that no-AA pixel font? I tried doing that from registry, but certain areas auto-AA and auto scale the font, making it look like shit.
the purple part behind the mountains is supposed to be some aura borealis although it doesnt really look like it, but it's a visualizer
Let's see what it looks like. Post desktop.
If firefox, try pic related.
Could I get that wallpaper that you're using?
Love this shit, thought you'd appreciate it.
Never watched K-ON though
Use chameleon or something so that the colors match on your rainmeter skins as a start.
If you're already using rainmeter consider that lone folder going on a dock or making a rainmeter skin real fast that matches the rest of your stuff.
I feel like your colors mismatch even though they're overlays I'd consider matching the top to your taskbar or matchign your taskbar to the top, but it feeels inconsistent
I like the pape tho
Nice for a 1monitor setup, super clean
Nanami-tan.info, read up, you're going to have to DIY since there is no real clearcut step-by-step guide.
Ricing isn't all about looks, don't make that mistake.
Figure out what you want. What do you want? a light theme, a dark theme? High contrast? Desaturated? Do you want your eyes to bleed or not? Do you want it to look like a linux distro?
Break it down:
Navigation icons for win/file explorer if the VS doesn't come with it
Icon packs, the easiest ones to install are iPack self-installers
Browser, going to need Stylish addon for this on FF
And then you have to consider: how do you use your computer UI? Do you use shortcut keys at all or is it all mouse? You can then start fixing up the look of explorer by keeping what you want and removing what you want.
What about your taskbar? Do you have a small screen and want to maximize space? Autohide it. Do you really need desktop icons when you have start menu and the taskbar itself? The desktop space then becomes a springboard where you can dump stuff temporarily instead of worrying about accidentally deleting shortcuts.
Want virtual workspaces like Mac or Linux but not on Windows 10? Sysinternals has it for 7 and 8.1.
Post more tucans pls
also >>6466725 really nice I love it, what programs do you use?
just reinstalled ubuntu today so I've done very little
Still a work in progress, need to fully rebuild after my hard drive crashed.
Rate and suggestions?
i posted before, can someone tell me how to improve?
Here's mine. Taskbar is usually hidden but I have it up for demonstration purposes.
3/10 pretty basic but decent wallpaper
7/10 tasty rice bro
9/10 everything comes together great. Though a hidden taskbar would make it better.
4/10 not very interesting wallpaper, nothing going on, its alright.
4/10 missing icons, hard to read text.
also this one has a few extra ones I used like csgo, chrome, youtube, vlc, etc
Nice rainmeter, try bblean if you want to rice further and use an acceptable windows WM
That is nice m8, 8/8 while i masterb8
NIce Rainmeter, try showing on with less mess for better rates. 6/10
DJ HiTec, that you my nigga?
Nice clean. 7/10
0/10 for asking no bully.
Edgy af having the bar at the top.
I'm Australian and what is this
Also sexy. 7/10
how many cools did you inject?
Rice a little before doing this minty m8
Lose the icons and hide the bar and you'd really have something. 7-8/10
Nice widgets m80
3/8 while i masterb8 m8 it must be f8
like this? what should i do for shortcuts?
That fucking wallpaper is nice.
I'd say it depends on how many shortcuts you use, personally I have tons I use so I use ObjectDock+ (for the multidrawer docks), but there are tons of options even directly in rainmeter or just using windows.
Clean all of your files and put them in their proper folders. (i.e. Documents, Downloads, Pictures, Music, Videos.) Hide your desktop icons. Open all your games through Steam. Get a background with a proper ratio. (Here, have mine.) Uninstall all your crap programs. Clean your taskbar. Report back to me with your progress. Here is my desktop: >>6469097
someone rate me :D
a bit messy though but i keep the games in one spot
Dankest dungeon plague doctor is best doctor
These are the two that you can see
I like the black and red
ass quality file coming
A tad smoother looking than mine
Get rid of the visualiser, trace the icons or switch for something higher-resolution. Otherwise okay.
Looks awesome, but too simple IMO. Some practicality doesn't have to cost simplicity.
Dece pape, but a little tasteful rice would make it look neat.
Looks good. I've seen this pape/similar used similarly before, but nothing looks like good. gj anon.
The icons don't *quite* fit imo, but this is really neat.
Overdone. I think if you unified your skins (fonts, weights etc.) it'd look much better.
This is crying out for a theme on that taskbar, or at least a set of custom icons. And matching the fonts of the monitoring meters at the bottom to either of the clock fonts would be cool.
Dropped a few here because the end of the thread wasn't getting any love
Dece. I like that it all works together well without any major ricing.
Shadow on the emblem thingy is funky, otherwise pretty cool.
Nice but a bit boring desu.
Contrast/10. Knock it up a bit IMO.
Noice, especially the paper. maybe change the font of one of the meters to match the others.
Not super riced, which is perfect for that paper. Nice.
How old are you?
Really neat layout, pape is sick.
Real nice. As nice as simple media is, this is the first time I've seen it look this good, it always looks a bit half-arsed. Props bro.
Crop that pape fám. Also swap illustro for something more fitting.

Working on wallpapers changing with rainmeter atm, gonna adjust icons when i'm done
Decent walpaper, terrible amount of shit on you desktop, at the very least setup a dock, but you should clean up all those desktop apps.
Move stuff off your desktop, revo uninstaller is largely wasteful just get CCleaner for 2 in 1
uTorrent really shouldn't be used ever since it was purchased a few years ago.
>Rars on desktop, images on desktop
>EaseUS for your 3DS hacking and not uninstalling it (seriously uninstall it it autoboots and tries some funny shit)
Nice pape at least
10/10 wallpapers I want all of them.
Did you make them yourself or just scour minimalist threads?
Text in top right is barely legible
Nice pape, sick look, very clean
Nice pape, the hexagons aren't really going with anything here, could use work
The visbubble looks odd
Looks good even unriced like that, very nice.
Someone loves their DRM
re uploaded without mess
Too messy OP
I need that performance
Can some win 10 bros post their start menus? I need some inspiration.
it's not that hard to reverse image search. read the sticky.
nice, clean pape
for some reason the music player (not the visualizer) seems out of place but maybe its just me
Best damn taskbar ive ever seen, for a non-rainmeter setup, this is nice
You got a lot going on here, give it a clean
You just posting a pape or is this your actual desktop...?
the best square ive ever seen, but its still a square
>Kylo Ren's temper tantrums/10
wtf. i realised how bad it looked, so here's new version
Do you actually use all of those files regularly?
Great use of taskbar, but if you're going to do that you should consider removing the icons from your desktop for something just as clean.
It's pretty damn good, only thing I'd consider is moving the album cover a little down as it's not quite on the left edge but is on the top edge which is odd, should be similar spacing on both preferably.
I do similar but use trimonitor papes. For duomonitor there are quite a few apps for that, unless you want them to be two different papes that might not match at the same time
Try and match your top bar to your taskbar opacity/color, probably consider modifying SimpleMedia a bit, might want to mess with colors on your FoC as well (White)
Not much to rate it's pretty clean, never understood using two different resolutions like that, too jarring for me personally.
I'm using a toaster and I'm very technologically retarded, so I try to avoid ricing.
How's this look?
Good luck hopefully in comes in good
Unless you're using an old version you should stop using uTorrent immediately, it was puchased by a large record company many years ago and has been suggested you don't use it since then. A seedbox or some form of tunnel is probably a good idea with whatever you use but unless you're running torrent in a sandboxie setup properly you should ditch it asap.
Decent pape, toherwise stock, probably change start orb if that's 10. At least the one most people use on 10 looks decent.
I'm using an old version of uTorrent. It apparently is required to access some private trackers for anime
Thanks for the advice though. Using windows 7 32-bit. I only have 2 GB RAM so it's not like I can play the newer vidya that require 64-bit OS anyway.
Still a WIP.
There's gold trying to shine through in this thread, but too much Vanilla Windows + Rainmeter garbage.
Oh, Great Enlightened One, maybe it's because Vanilla Windows, is simple and useful, no need to install slower crap over it. All the shells for windows out there are shit compared to explorer.
Because bbLean is SO bloated, right?
Seriously, I respect your opinion, you don't like anything else - fine.
But it's like people don't even TRY anymore. That's what aggrovates me the most.
Not that Anon, but when I see such things posted I try them and keep an eye on my processes if they're taking more than 3-5% of my CPU they get the boot, other than bblean most things do, but I haven't found a need to get rid of explorer and I like the way it functions so there's no need to. Rainmeter just provides me with more information that I want and moving things around where I wanted them (i.e. clock not in bottom right of main monitor only).
Unfortunately I don't care quite enough to sink time into ricing past that when I can just play games. I mainly just want something functional and not looking jarring. I just wish there were some good editable alternatives to Enigma for what I'm trying to do, I can't see myself spending more than the 2 days on dA that I have trying to find them if they exist though.
Looks a lot better now, neato.
pretty boring but its fine for me
Honestly I just love it for the customization and the fact that it can play most audio files like .flac or even apple codecs.
It's a little confusing at first but after a while the extra features and tools like ReplayGain control, tag editing and conversion to other formats are all extremely useful.
clock is elegance
visualizer+song information is MonsterCat
sorry for the time i took wasn't here for a while
(pic related update)
That rainmeter's really nice, and the pape is pretty cool too. You should really get a copy of displayfusion in a steam sale though. It's nigh-essential for proper multi-monitor configs
like the monotone 8/10
