Can I set the default things to my own?

Post by Mettelor »

By this I mean that it seems like this program (DLd it tonight) generally uses certain programs that I use different versions of that are basically the same.

At the bottom of my desktop right now I can click on iTunes, Picasa, Firefox, Notepad and Trillian.

I would prefer it to say WMP, Gimp, Google Chrome, MS Word and Ventrillo.

Anything I can do about this?

You'll need to edit the skin. It's pretty simple, just requires sorting through the text of the .ini file. If you right click on the skin and select Skin Menu -> Edit Skin you'll get a text file. Since it looks like you're using Enigma, you'll see a section that looks similar to this:

Code: Select all

[AppActive]
Meter=STRING
MeterStyle=StyleText
Text=Calculator
X=60
FontColor=ffff33
LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute ["C:\Windows\System32\calc.exe"][!RainmeterHideMeter AppActive][!RainmeterShowMeter App][!RainmeterRedraw]
Where "C:\Windows\System32\calc.exe" is the path of whatever the default program is. Just replace that with the path for whatever program you want to use, and update the Text= to whatever you want the displayed text to be.

If you're using something other than enigma and can't find the path location to change, just post the skin name and a link to it so someone here can help.
