The Skyscraper Desktop

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.

First of all, since this is a Windows desktop, Rainmeter is the order of the day, and this getting started guide will help you walk through the basics. It’s a little dated, but enough to get you started with the skins and tools below.

All together, it’s a pretty picture. I especially like the visual style and the taskbar and start menu transparency, that’s something I might grab even if I don’t customise the rest of my desktop to this same extent, but it’s still all great together. If you have questions about how it’s all done, or want to know how that skin looks just the way it does, hit the Flickr link below to head to joergermeister’s page and ask away.
