Can anybody help me with this? When I try to download rainmeter after the normal procedure it tells me ""No skins available at C:\\Users\MYNAME\Music\OneDrive\Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\" and I've tried to fix it by following what the forums say but either it didn't work or i didn't understand it correctly. Please

Post your "About" version info as described above. 👆 You have somehow (probably with OneDrive's "help") gotten your default Documents path and default Music paths all messed up, and now Rainmeter is looking in the wrong places. Some info on how to manually change these is here (one of many sites with this info), but these instructions don't take OneDrive into account, as OneDrive moves all these locations to a folder that is synced with your MS account in the cloud. If you are using a corporate machine where there is a group policy forcing the locations, you will not be able to change the location. In this case, you will want to change where Rainmeter looks for skin files by changing the SkinPath variable in Rainmeter.ini.

Move the Skins folder from OneDrive to a non-OneDrive location, because Rainmeter has a conflict if the skins are there: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?p=202569#p202568
