Desktop Shortcut Replacement

Post by nyongrand »

Hi, I am new to Rainmeter, Currently I'm trying to make a Rainmeter skin that will replace the default desktop shortcut icon, I made this because I've always wanted to hide the text on the desktop icon.

For now this skin will have the ability to:
[+]Able to detect any shortcut on the desktop and make meters
[+]Able to take a shortcut icon that is on so we do not need to search for icons one by one
[+]Advance setting, including icon size, icon bg, icon border, icon border size, and margin between icon
[+]If icon bg is set to auto, this skin can automatically get dominant color based on icon, (much like windows 7 taskbar glowing)
[+]This skin get icon based on your shortcut, so you can change your shortcut icon to whatever and this skin will use that icon.
[+]Default right click menu such as, run as administrator, delete icon, shortcut properties.

This skin is far from perfect, and therefore I beg everyone here to give criticism and suggestions, to download this skin please visit my deviantart
