Downloading More Skins
Rainmeter has thousands of custom skins and layout sets that will help you
dramatically customize the look of your desktop. The default illustro skin has a
nice look, but you are not taking full advantage of Rainmeter if you don’t check
out the other skins available. I personally use the Omnimo 5.0 skin on my PC; it
has a modern look to it that its in well with Windows 8, as shown in Figure 7-11.
You can download the Omnimo 5.0 skin at tweaks.com/765252 .
You can find additional skins, layout sets, and add-ons on a number of sites.
The following list is a collection of the best places to download more Rainmeter
■ DeviantArt — tweaks.com/574891
■ Customize.org — tweaks.com/766833
■ Rainmeter Discover — tweaks.com/303767
After you download a skin or layout set, just double-click the .rmskin file and
Rainmeter will enable you to install the skin.
