What is Rainmeter?

A free (open source) application for computers running Windows that allows you to change desktop skins. There are countless free and paid pre-made "skins" on the Internet, edited by others, and you can use this program to change them whenever you want the downloaded skin.

Quick tip: Since the program is so-called "open source", you can use it to edit these skins according to your taste and then share them with your friends.

First step:

Download the Rainmeter program and then install it on your computer. It is open source software freely distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL v2 license.

It can be downloaded from here...

Step two:

After installation, a small window with settings options will immediately appear on the right side of the desktop (or in the upper right corner), where if you click on it with the right mouse button, you will see the Settings button, where you can choose other functions. At the same time, in the middle of the desktop, in a visible place, a small information window appears with several links leading to the program's website, where you can find additional descriptions and help if you click on the link Getting Started.

Note: The right column shows the processor (CPU), below the memory (RAM) usage in real time, from which you can deduce the load of the program currently in use on the computer.

The program can be opened at any time (if it has been closed) by left-clicking the small up arrow in the tray, then the "Show hidden icons" navigation menu appears, then clicking the "Rainmeter" icon starts the program.
