How To Pimp Out Your Desktop

Download the following programs:

ObjectDock
Rainmeter

-ObjectDock looks nice once you install it, but to fit your taste, go to wincustomize to download nice themes and skins. It's basically a windows version of one of those mac toolbars you see. They are used to cleanup your desktop.

-Rainmeter is a nice all in one widget. It has a clock, RSS reader, notes, ect. Please keep in mind that with a slower computer, I suggest not downloading rainmeter do to the major lag.

Wallpaper:

For this, go to wallbase. They have many cool wallpapers. Some are NSFW so be careful. Or, use google.

Themes:

Themes are what change the look of your OS. They have plenty at
customize.org. Depending on your version, you might need the unpatcher for the themes to work. I don't know here to get this so just google it.

    Here are the icons:

    Just right click on an icon and go to dock settings then change the icon. Also, change the transparency of the background make it dissapear by going to dock settings.

    Rain meter is more complicated. Download skin files into the skins folder for Rainmeter, then right click and try to find it. I'm not sure because I don't use it.

    Right click on a dock icon>dock properties>change image>browse. Or, you can put your icons into the same directory to make it easier.

    To be honest, they all still look like Windows, even with the fake dock.
    great link for the wallpaper site though.

    No rocketdock, just simple toolbars for organization. I love my epic monkey though! Also, House desktop = WIN!
