Steam Games

Post by Judian81 »

Hey Hello people,

I have made a skin that can be used with steam desktop shortcuts.
If you press on "steam games" in the title it opens your steam library.
You can add up to more then 15 games and you can reduce it to 1.

The skin find itself to how many steam desktop shortcuts there are in the folder.
The total amount can be more then 15 items.

The steam desktop shortcuts can be dropped in the skin folder "Shortcuts\"
If you change the name you will find it back in the skin.

There are 2 themes
The shortcuts delivered with this skin are all free.
Normally when you start something it is already installed.
Those games deliverd with the skin are proparly not installed yet or you have to buy them.
So steam will inform you about if it has to be installed.

I have made a new skin that looks like steam program.


The rainmeter theme version:

Hey hello,

Had a problem with the skin updating there icons and startup links. In stead of making parent in parent in parent to child.
I now made use of brothers and sisters. That solved the problem for me. Some explanation is the brother and sister do the same thing.
But there both are just called once. And so i have used mother, dad and uncle that were called from both brother, sister and niece.

I hope you understand.
