Oh, it is in the images, I know that and I am sure about that, because that's what I used for the Notepad a moment ago. Ok then, I will try to remove the things you've told me and refresh.!!
Good luck and let me know if you succeeded.

You have two different locations coded for 'Test1.png'!

In [Rainmeter] you have Background=#@#Test1.png

Then in [Meter] you have ImageName=#@#Images\Test1.png

Why would you want to use the same image as the entire skin background and also as a sized image meter, does make sense to me?

Correct the image paths, or remove all 3 Background lines from [Rainmeter] and you will see the image, if indeed it is in '@Resources\Images'.

Hope this helps get you on your way... :welcome:

Sorry, I am still very new and bad it seems...I know what you mean, sometimes I black out and can't think and just keep typing and typing...
I'll see what I can do, then! Thanks for telling me!

Omg! I love you fam! I can now see both the disks and the fonts and all...!!! The only, ONLY issue I have, is, it haven't loaded my bg.

I DID removed both the lines you've told me, couldn't find a third one. And I can see it right now, but it is without bg behind it. I will try to put my
custom bg on it though, I have to find the correct line.

I am gonna change it color! No worries, I know how to do that!!! I am gonna make it purple, probably, the green one is kinda off with the bg I have!

God, I love creating rainmeter skins! I will release for all of you as a gift once I am done with it and finish it!

Not just tease you, but you should have to remove the practically empty options. I'm talking for example about the LeftMouseUpAction and ToolTipText options of the [Meter] meter. Not being used, they are useless, so, you can get rid of them (these kind of useless options are bothering me, sorry).
Otherwise congratulations, looking good...

Please, PLEASE!!! No offense taken! I completely understand where you're coming from and I agree with you. I too am a bit of completionist sometimes, so, I won't judge you. Thank you for helping me.
