The Synthwave Desktop

This desktop is actually a second screen, ever so customised with a couple of elements that really fit the theme and give us a dose of that 80s nostalgia. The primary display uses the same desktop, but this one’s the one worth talking about. Here’s what you’ll need to get the same look.


The Desktop Desktop

I have a bit of a soft spot for desktops that actually look like desktops. Alec’s desktop fits the bill nicely, and actually looks like a desk surface, with items in the corners, while there’s still plenty of room to actually work, and a little customisation to make it personal.


The Crashing Waves Desktop

katil10‘s desktop is well-customised, pretty minimal, but also just energetic enough to make us want to sit down and get stuff done. Here’s how it’s all set up, and what you’ll need to get the same beautiful, personalised look.


The Long Road Ahead Desktop

Reader Alec submitted this simple, minimal Mac desktop to our Desktop Showcase, and it’s simple, understated, and looks great. Here’s how you can set it up too.


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.
