Hi was wondering if you could tell me what you used in your launchers at the bottom. I recognize them but cant think of what they are.

if one was to download this and decided it was a bad idea, how would one go back to the default desktop?

And the BG:

I figured that out when I opened the configuration settings for the small right launcher.
The example you put in the Right/Left launchers doesn't work, It doesn't explain that, This is the example:

That doesn't really work, What works is the example you put in the small right/left launcher, Which is this:


PS: Your hud still is still the best hud out there

I suppose that was a bad example.
Because only a very few programs (firefox, chrome, itunes) works when you only enter the programname.exe, and for pretty everything else the full path is required.

Anyway, thank you for pointing that out and your support!

So, uh, this is a weird question, but what's the font that you used on the skin?

It is working great for me, but I can't get the launchers to work.
I have a PNG image named "Chrome.PNG" saved in this pc/documents/rainmeter/skins/thing-o-meter v1.0/resources/images and it isnt showing up in my launcher...

I really like the skin, but I can't get the (normal size) launcher to open programs, is there something you have to do besides putting in the .exe filename?

If the path contains space, wrap it up with quotation marks
If that still doesn't work, use

[explorer.exe "full path to program"]

Now if only the skins had more depth... that would look awesome.
