If you’re keen on customizing the look of Windows, you’ve no doubt heard of Rainmeter, the program that enables you personalize your computer to an incredible level. Rather than requiring you to manually make a series of changes to every aspect of your desktop – although you can do this if you want to – the quickest and easiest way to customize Windows is to download a readymade skin.
This is already making things much easier, but RainmeterSkin Gallery goes a step or two further, helping to simplify the process even simpler. There are countless web sites that provide access to thousands of skins, but this app wraps up a nicely presented gallery in a desktop app that is not only easy to use, but also well designed and good looking.
The program interface is divided up into two main sections – Recommended and Latest – which enable you to browse through skins that have proved popular with other users, as well as those which have just been releases. The gallery displays thumbnails of the skins that are available for download, and by clicking any of these previews you can view additional information.
To be fair, the process of installing skins for Rainmeter can be slightly confusing to start with, particularly for anyone who is new to the world of skinning. With this gallery on your computer – it is a portable app that can be run without the need for installation – you can easily browse through the latest releases and use the download links to grab your copy with a minimum of fuss.
A great tool for Rainmeter fans that will unveil all manner of skins for your desktop.
