We've seen our fair share of desktops brimming with tweaks and customisations, but sometimes it's nice to see someone step back and decide to keep things minimalistically functional. Lifehacker reader SARodrigues did just that with this desktop.
If you want the same look for your Windows desktop, here's what you need to make it happen:
- The Sandblast Wallpaper from Minimal Sophistication
- The Rainmeter system configuration and management utility for Windows
- The Enigma Suite for Rainmeter for the icons and shortcuts, Now Playing widget, calendar widget and weather
- The Elegance 2 theme for Rainmeter for the system clock and the date next to it
Every now and again, it's nice to see a Rainmeter setup that doesn't require a lot of configuration and is suitable for just about any system, especially if you're just getting your toes in the water customising your system. If you need help with Rainmeter, we have a guide for that right here.
