The Primordial Desktop

The Primordial Desktop

Mackenzie‘s desktop is a beautiful wooded respite that lowers your stress levels just by looking at it — which makes it perfect for a work desktop, or a second screen. Here’s how to set it up.

This is a Windows desktop (not that it’s super obvious from looking), but luckily you won’t need much to make the whole thing work. You can take the wallpaper alone if you want, or you can add the one Rainmeter skin required to make the whole thing work together, it’s up to you.

That’s all there is this time around. Show or hide the taskbar (it’s hidden here), whatever you prefer to do. Simple, easy on the eyes, and relaxing. Sometimes, as they say, less is more.

If you like what you see, head over to Mackenzie’s flickr page (linked below) to let them know you like how the finished product looks, or to ask your questions about how it was all set up.

Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us!
