How to use Rainmeter to Customize your Windows Desktop - Installation

In my Previous Article, I shared my Rainmeter Layout on my Desktop. Rainmeter is an application for customizing your Desktop which works by Installing skins. There is a very large community of Rainmeter users who are actively developing and making new skins.

I had shared some of the skins in my Previous Article on my Desktop Customization with Rainmeter. You can read it here.

In this article we will first Install Rainmeter and then look at some Customized Rainmeter Desktops!

Installing Rainmeter -

First you need to download the Rainmeter Installer from its Official Website (Recommended).

After Downloading Rainmeter, run the Installer as Administrator and give the required Permissions. Now select the desired option and click Next. 'Standard Installation' is Recommended but if you are installing it in a removable drive then select 'Portable Installation'.
Note: If you are selecting 'Portable Installation' then you will manually need to install the required libraries.

Now in the next window you will have to select the location where you want to install Rainmeter. After browsing the location, check the 'Install 64-bit version' if you are installing it on a 64-bit OS Installation. Also keep the 'Launch Rainmeter on Startup' box checked (Recommended) to launch it as soon as Windows Boots.

Finishing with the Installation
We have successfully installed Rainmeter, now we will have a look at some of the customized Rainmeter Desktops. I will also give a link to the tutorial, so that you can apply that theme if you like it.
