Rainmeter and Windows 7 Desktop Background Slideshow

Post by SSMI »

Is there a way to change the arrangement of skins in Rainmeter when the background changes? Or maybe make one skin that is the background and have it change the other skins?

You can have different themes (skins and their placements) with a wallpaper included.
If you change theme, you change wallpaper. Look at RainThemes (Context menu: Themes -> Manage themes...)
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

But is it possible to change it all automatically every thirty minutes to an hour so I can use a slide show like desktop?

Is it possible to change the theme with an action on a skin? Say when you click it or a certain amount of time passes?

What does changing the configuration ini-file with the bang "!RainmeterActivateConfig [Config] [Ini-file]" do?

activates a skin
Zero at programing, zero at writing codes, so far 2 at making images
But I'm good at copy/paste, and I not always like this
