onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=…


----Installation Instructions


1) Install the Rainmeter skinnable system monitoring software- make sure u have the latest one!
     rainmeter.net/
2) Download and install this skin. Download button is on the right of this page >>>>>>>>

There is a User Manual you can access easily through the RM GLOBAL CONTROLS skin (should be located above your start button) by selecting the 'Suite User Manual'.
Have a read if you feel a bit lost or are encountering issues with the suite.


----Description


First uploaded 28/01/2018 DesktopWidgets 1.0

This suite is an improved version of my old Bluevision Mod suite which started off as a  modified version of g3xter's BlueVision V0.2 Alpha. 
g3xter.deviantart.com/art/Blue…
Since then I have added a multitude of features either created from scratch or inspired by other skins.

This skin suite is intended to be simplistic yet powerful. It avoids decorative elements such as background images, random shapes, graphics and etc.
Instead, it is a purely utilitarian skin suite packed full of useful features. 
Click the first link at the top to see the annotated screenshots, which will pictorially explain most of the features of this suite!

Features:

- Time accurate audio spectrum visualiser
     randomly changing colours
     louder bands will also have different colour tone

- Control interface for Windows Media Player (can be changed to other supported players)
     change output device, pause/play, skip next/previous, open player window, change volume
     expands to show title of song playing in Windows Media Player, shrinks to hide blank space if no song playing

- RSS feed readers for weather and BBC news
     News headlines can be clicked to open the article in a browser window

- Network traffic skins display the date of the last network statistics reset
     The button beside the date resets the statistics (clears the total up/dl)

- Removeable drives skins appear when drive is plugged in, disappear if drive disconnected
     The OPEN button allows easy 1 click access to the drive
     The EJECT button allows easy 1 click ejection for safe removal

- Collapsible menus for Windows Maintenance Tools, Internet Radio Stream Services

- Collapsible menu for controlling Rainmeter and the skin suite itself (RM Global Controls- invisible until mouse over, located above start button)
     Has buttons for:   Exiting Rainmeter completely
                                Managing Rainmeter
                                Activating/deactivating current layout
                                Refreshing Rainmeter
                                Opening the User Manual
                                And a few more functions!

- Meters showing dynamic values can have their text copied to clipboard though the context menu (right click)

- Google search skin and dynamically sizing note taking skin
