Q) Help! I need to close a skin but it won't let me!
A) If you ever need to "escape" from a skin in an emergency, press Left Control + Right Click. This will bring up the context menu and you can kill the skin.

Q) Why is the download ~70 MB?
A) There are a lot of high resolution images included in the suite. The big ones are mainly weather pictures. The images alone total 65 MB. The rest is just .ini files.

Q) What exactly are the apps? Rainmeter doesn't have apps.
A) The apps are just full-screen Rainmeter skins. They look and act like their Android counterparts. What may be a small music player on another suite is a full-screen Google Play Music twin on this suite.

Q) What is Rainmeter?
A) From the website: "Rainmeter displays customizable skins, like memory and battery power, RSS feeds and weather forecasts, right on your desktop."

Q) Where do I download it?
A) You need the latest version of Rainmeter! Download it at the official website.

Q) Are there any system requirements?
A) All you need is a Windows PC!

Q) Will this work on my laptop?
A) I strongly recommend 1366x768 as being the minimum resolution.
