If you want to make your very own, custom watch face that nobody else has, read on. Even iOS users can do it!
Flickr user d.chasenelson's desktop is simple, only has a few widgets, and a simple gradient wallpaper that's not at all distracting. It's ideal for a second screen when you're working in the first, or just as a quick monitor view you can minimise other things to check out. Here's how to set it up.
Reader ravenclawwit stumbled on the NXT theme for Rainmeter, and put it to great use in this beautiful, functional desktop. That circle in the upper left? It's actually a dock, packed with shortcuts. Here's how it all works, and how to set it up.
We've featured a Firewatch Desktop before, but now that the game is out, we're seeing more than a few -- and who can blame you, the game's atmosphere is a huge draw, and the landscapes are gorgeous. Reader jadita put this one together.
