"Edit". Figured out the desktop image path, thanks. Can I associate a mouse click path for it, as well? To open an app?

Hello. This is nicely done. A couple of issues, however. One, there REALLY should be a confirmation box that pops up when you click on the "log off" or "shutdown" buttons. I clicked one on accident and my PC closed so quickly, it bypassed normal Windows procedures and didn't allow me to close anything gracefully, it just instantly closed them all. Lost an hour of work. Kinda wak.

Two, I am having trouble with a "desktop" image in the dock2 location. I see the [desktop label] code but no image path location. Is there a way to point this or how does this work? Since it isn't actually Metro, what will clicking on "desktop" do?

Thanks. Good work, though. I much prefer over the original. I would like to use it as the RM portion of a new splinterface I am creating, if you agree to it. One that exhibits superior functionality than the Metro/8 desktop interfaces.

Please see the latest examples of splinterfaces, including one integrated with RM. Thanks for reply, in advance.

How can I separate the tile and use them individually?

Check this [link] out, this is the original version from which I created this skin. He has created the skin as individual tiles, if you check this out you will get an idea. Hope this helps.

thanx bro :) itz done :) one more thing, how to add my own application or folder in this skin ?

There is a note pads in each folder, you have to edit the paths and replace it with the path of the application or the folder, you need to add.
If you need to change the icon, download the respective icon from net and just replace the icons.
