I apologize, but I'm new to this forum.
I'm almost ashamed to ask a stupid question.
When I go to the sites you mentioned and download, the file has a ".rmskin" extension how should this type of file be opened?
Thank you
Here is a video that can help you: Video
Watch only first ~30s to know all about installation. It goes fast, but you can change the playback speed on yt. Skip steps about HWiNFO if you dont need it. It's a software for many other sensors, all your Computer has.

So, you first have to install Rainmeter, then download a skin you want in .rmskin format.
Just double click on it and follow the steps.
After it's being installed, unload some of the current skins, or load some others by a click on Rainmeter icon in the Taskbar/Quick launch, Right click on it, find SKINS in the Menu, then find a skin suite and then a skin from the skin suite you wish to load.

Feel free to ask whatever you want. I'm using and making skins for Rainmeter since 2014. but still ask something very stupid and simple at times. :oops: :handtohead:

I didn't know that they were other skins that can display more hard disks, perhaps it would be better, than not to act on the scripts.
I'm not familiar with scripts ,.
Currently I have installed on W10 Gadgets revived and allows me to view endless HDDs, but I think this software is now obsolete and I wanted something more modern.
And I don't know which application to choose.
You could try these Rainmeter skin suites, the Drives Meter skins will show all the drives you have:

Thanks for the suggestions.
I have installed "rainformer_2_3_hwinfo_edition ___ rainmeter_by_pul53dr1v3r_dd247z5.rmskin"
In the CPU gadget I can't see other cores and in the HDD gadget I can't see other Hard disks.
I also wanted to ask if it was possible to change the language, at least for the clock.

As to Rainformer,
-click on the CPU-RAM skin, select Variants and choose CPU-RAM instead of CPU-RAM light, in order to see all cpu cores.
(if you'd might want to make the CPU temperature, CPU Clock and CPU Fan speed working, you'll have to use HWiNFO software.)

-you can change the day language in the Clock skin adding this line of code to [measureDay] measure : FormatLocale=it-IT. It's placed in row 100 of the code, in your txt editor.
To opet the code, just make a left mouse click on the clock skin, then select Edit skin.
When you finish what you need, press Ctrl+S to save or go to menu of your txt editor and do it.

-To load other Disk Drives, just click on any skin with your mouse, and select "Rainformer settings" in the menu. There are small boxes where you will see all the drive letters. Click on them to load/unload drive skins you need.

Thank you for the information, the other gadgets allow the automatic display of more HDDs.
As for the Illustro> Disk, I opened the settings panel, but I can't see the other disk drives.
