"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.

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.

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.

Hey man,
thanks for your comment and adding this skin in your favorites.
the user picture should change automatically if you change the path to
C:\Users\"Your user name"\AppData\Local\Temp\"Your user name".bmp, in the original rainmeter skin file.
In the above path you should find a bmp file with current user name as bmp's file name. Just replace the path in the original rainmeter skin file.
hope this helps. please tell me if this does not work.
