Task Bar

samh11 » May 26th, 2011, 1:49 am

does rainmeter have a skin that can replace the function of the task bar? like hold minimized windows and have a start button? i think it is wonky and annoying to run the task bar and rainmeter at the same time. im new to all this, so help is appreciated.

Start button with external programs yes
Minimized windows with something like autoit creating a rainmeter formated ini based upon current open windows... yes

Native Rainmeter... No

Your going to have to do it yourself if you want minimized windows

Start Menu: http://www.chrisnsoft.com/download


Things like this just arent things rainmeter does effectively. Thats what the following are for:

bbLean
Emerge Desktop
GeoShell
GreenGnome
KDE (Project KDE on Windows)
LDE(X)
LiteStep
SharpE (now SharpEnviro)
Aston
BumpTop
Packard Bell Navigator
Program Manager
Secure Desktop
Talisman Desktop
TabWorks
Wayfarer
CUBEx Series
I have three rules when I'm trying to help you.
  • Don't get mad when you don't understand something
  • Be VERY specific with what you ask for.
    The more specific you are, the higher the quality of support you receive.
  • Do not just copy and paste what I put in examples and come back saying it doesn't work.
    It does work, but I purposely left blanks that you need to fill for your specific needs.
