The Skyscraper Desktop

Our friend joergermeister is running Windows 10 in this desktop, but as always, has it customised to look and work the way he wants it, and the end result looks great. If you like the look — or even just some of the look — here’s how to get it for yourself.


The Simple Sunrise Desktop

That’s Windows under there if you couldn’t tell, which means Rainmeter is the tool of the day. If you’re unfamiliar with it, our getting started guide to Rainmeter will help you get your bearings.


The Momentum Inspired Desktop

Reader geeklibrarian‘s desktop is inspired by Momentum, one of our favourite Chrome extensions, and it looks beautiful. Peaceful and calming, but informative at the same time. Here’s how to get the same look.


The Twisted Desktop

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen JonRedcorn2’s customised desktops, but this one was so striking we couldn’t look away — and we had to feature it. Here’s how to get the same look for your computer.


The Pier's End Desktop

When Sebastian submitted his desktop, we were ready to share it as-is, but then he linked to the project at Behance, which included this lovely video of the whole thing in action. It’s a beautifully custom take on a system UI, and he’s included many of the components so you can make it yourself. Here’s how.


Win10 Widgets Brings System Monitors And Other Native-Looking Tools To Your Desktop

Windows: Built-in desktop widgets left Windows with the end of the sidebar, but they have always been available with third party apps like the always-incredible Rainmeter. Win10 Widgets is a Rainmeter package that brings a lot of those informative widgets back to Windows in a way that looks natural in Windows 10.


The Stormy Sea Desktop

This desktop is simple enough, and Flickr user jsmorley explained that they wanted something just personalised a bit, but nothing over the top. The end result is this dramatic desktop that’s also easy for anyone to duplicate. Here’s how.


The Blood-Pumping Desktop

Reader McTarkus submitted this beating heart desktop to our Desktop Showcase, and in animated form, we can’t help but show it to the world. Here’s how he made it, and how you can make it too.


The Hulking Robot Desktop

Giacomo’s Windows 10 desktop doesn’t have a ton of skins or moving parts, but combined with that wallpaper it’s pretty dramatic. Here’s how he set it all up, and how you can too.


The Faded Getaway Desktop

Good wallpaper, faded app launcher in the corner, and a visualizer. Reader Ciysco’s desktop looks sharp and we love it. Here’s how you can make it your own.
