The Navigator’s Desktop

The Navigator’s Desktop

Windows: Reader salt_and_pepper submitted this beautiful, functional desktop to our desktop showcase. A few widgets on the side and room to work on the left, and it’s all done. Here’s how it was made.

This is salt_and_pepper’s first customised desktop, and we’d say it’s a smashing success. The wallpaper makes it, but the Rainmeter widgets selected here are good choices too. Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make this one your own.

You don’t have to go as far as tweaking the taskbar the way salt_and_pepper did here, although we can definitely see how black icons in the taskbar look better with this wallpaper and setup than the standard multicolor ones would.
