After some searching I discovered Rainmeter and decided to look into it. I figured out that it was indeed capable of doing what I desired and began working.
The result was fantastic.
Each one is a clickable button that executes a file of of your choosing. I'm still looking for ideas on how to improve this, so please post if you have them! Firstly I'm looking into making them all properly aligned automatically in a 1080p setting. Following that I'd like to figure out how to get it to work on any other resolution, where the rocks will be thicker/wider.

Please note that after installing the skin you must load it from Rainmeter. It will overwrite your current desktop background so you might want to back it up. Works on the following resolutions:
1920x1080, 1680x1050, 1600x900, 1440x960, 1400x1050.
Let me know how I did!
Code: Select all
Patch Notes: 1.0: Release 1.1: Added support for multiple resolutions. 1.2: Added captions w/ support for multiple resolutions. 1.21: Small visual bug fixes. 1.3: Added support for opening file & folders.
