My desktop near the end of 2016.
I upgraded my setup in July, so now I have one ultrawide monitor instead of two monitors.

I haven't really changed my desktop that much. I've been quite busy with college and work.

Programs used (left to right):

Rainmeter
    - My own skin. Not released (yet).
AIMP
    - Skin: Ladient 2
Explorer
MPC-HC
Hexchat
    - hexchat.conf 
    - 
colors.conf 
    - gtkrc 
Transmission QT

Visual style: Penumbra 10
Taskbar/explorer icons: My own (might be added in the future)

You inspired me to go ahead and 'mod' my windows again, haven't done it in years :D Any chance that you'll release the rainmeter skin? Thank you!

The Rainmeter skin I use is just a modified version of Rainmeter - Elegance 2. Since there isn't much difference between it and what I have, I don't see the point in making it a separate Rainmeter skin.

how did you align explorer and mpchc like that?

I use an old window tiling program named Winsplit Revolution to align/tile my windows. (download.cnet.com/WinSplit-Rev…).

looks amazing!
for your icons since you use your own. Do you recommend something that is similar to yours?

Yes, I would recommend Ecqlipse 2: chrfb.deviantart.com/art/ecqli….
My icons are easier on the eyes (less bright), but are very similar.

I am trying to install them but how do you do it?
 
edit: I figured out how to change them from the power of Google xD
but I can't change the libraries icon. How do you do it?

I personally change Explorer icons with this registry method: www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/… (Yes, this still works on Windows 10).
Not sure if there is an easier method, but this has worked for me since Windows 7 and it's only a one-time thing (unless you frequently change icons).

i tried that but still no changed :/

thanks anyways I will just leave it for now cx

another thing for the AIMP player I am using a skin that you recommend on your other desktop ends and in all of them where it says "menu, eq, media, 0:00, tray, top, close" is gone. how do you get rid of it?

sorry once again I found out

oh and by any chance do you have theme like this for any web browsers? I use firefox

I personally use Chrome with the following theme: chrome.google.com/webstore/det….
It works really nicely with my theme, only it has a thin white line under the navbar.

Do you have any plans on releasing your icon set? I've been using your Penumbra theme for a while and I'd love to have icons that don't clash with the dark colors of the theme.

I only made a couple of icons for the programs I use on a daily basis, so I have no plans on releasing it. Maybe in the near future if I make some more icons.

Hmm, even your explorer system icon set? I should have clarified beforehand.
Even if there's no release, thanks for making such a great theme.

Yea, I only have 5 different explorer icons at the moment. I do plan on making more variations of the folder icons for pictures, downloads, games, music etc. I just need to set some time apart to work on it.
