Windows 10 Style Tab for Rainmeter

Be my first patron on Patreon and decide what skin I should make next.

A side tab for Rainmeter in the same style that Windows 10 side tab comes.

It takes colors from your currently applied wallpaper (the same way Windows 10 does). If you have slideshow for wallpaper, it'll refresh just right for each wallpaper.

Read the description for help!
Some updates will be coming soon for this, with a config utility and (probably) 4 more tabs.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Switch between 4 tabs:

- A launcher for programs (alternatively for folders or links)

- System monitor (more stats will be added in update(s))

- To do list (editable on clicking)

- RSS feed

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Help:

The theme - to be actually useful as a launcher- will pop up if you drag the mouse to the right side, and right click on the 2 pixel wide border that comes up when you're at the edge of the screen. You can pop it up when while full-screen applications are open (browser, etc), but not in exclusive full-screen mode.

The side tab goes back to hiding if you drag it off the screen.

You can lock the theme by clicking on the Lock button, so it doesn't automatically hide. In this case, it'll be on desktop level, so it will hide when full screen window covers it.

Sadly as Blur only works in Windows 7, you won't see the blur effect in Windows 10, but Windows 7 users will still be able to see it.

Launcher:

Right click on the icon to browse for an icon for your application (png files also work).
Right click on the name of the app to rename it.
Right click on the program's path browse for the application.
Left click on icon / app's name to launch it.
Middle click in the app's path to manually type it, so that you can use it to launch folders for example.

To do list:

Icon:
Left click to "check" item, right click to mark as "important", middle click clears the icon.
Text area:
Left click to add a new note. Clear it by double-right-clicking on the icon (so that the gray "click to add new note" appears), or just delete the text and enter to make it blank.

RSS feed:

Click on the title to paste you feed URL.
