Task Bar

Post by samh11 »

does rainmeter have a skin that can replace the function of the task bar? like hold minimized windows and have a start button? i think it is wonky and annoying to run the task bar and rainmeter at the same time. im new to all this, so help is appreciated.

Start button with external programs yes
Minimized windows with something like autoit creating a rainmeter formated ini based upon current open windows... yes

Native Rainmeter... No

Your going to have to do it yourself if you want minimized windows

Start Menu:

Things like this just arent things rainmeter does effectively. Thats what the following are for:

Emerge Desktop
KDE (Project KDE on Windows)
SharpE (now SharpEnviro)
Packard Bell Navigator
Program Manager
Secure Desktop
Talisman Desktop
CUBEx Series
I have three rules when I'm trying to help you.
  • Don't get mad when you don't understand something
  • Be VERY specific with what you ask for.
    The more specific you are, the higher the quality of support you receive.
  • Do not just copy and paste what I put in examples and come back saying it doesn't work.
    It does work, but I purposely left blanks that you need to fill for your specific needs.
