Auto Launch

Post by Pizza68 »

Hopefully an easy question, how do you get Rainmeter to automatically launch with Windows 10 when it starts up?

I have to manually click the Rainmeter icon to have the Mond Clock appear on my desktop.
The Nexus bar launches automatically but not the Rainmeter Mond Clock.

Any help would be great.

Hi!

So Rainmeter itself starts with Windows, because you have said that the Nexus bar launches automatically.

There must be some issue with the skin "Mond Clock" that prevents it to start.
Can you provide a link to this skin, so we can download it and see what happens? Or provide a .rmskin for this skin from your installation?

No it doesnt start with Windows.
I have to go into my start menu, find it, then click on the icon manually.
It then puts the clock on my desktop and minimizes itself to the quick launch bar.
If I restart Windows or turn my pc back on after being off I have to go through this whole procedure again.

Ok, now i understand.

Usually you can select that Rainmeter starts automatically during installation.

So please just download Rainmeter again (you can select the latest beta, as it usually is very stable) and then, during installation, look for the checkbox - the screenshot is in german but i guess you get it:

All your skins are kept, so don't worry!
