The Departure Songs Desktop

We’ve seen some simple desktops and some busy ones, but this one from reader Peregerine, walks the line pretty well. It keeps a lot of the space in the center clear so you have plenty of room to work, but also adds some widgets and tools around the periphery that are useful and informative.

If you’d like to make this for your own Windows machine, the first thing you’ll need is a copy of Rainmeter, and some tips to make the most of it. We have a getting started guide here you can use.

Now if you’d like to get the same look, here are the components Peregerine used:

That’s about it. As usual with Rainmeter desktops, you can take or leave specific components if you’re not feeling one of them, or if you think you’d rather have something different. All in all, it’s a great way to achieve a good look. If you like what you see, head down to Pergerine’s Kinja blog, linked below, and share your thoughts on it.
