Waaaah! how do I download and use it? I am new to this.step by step instructions will be greatly appreciated

This is an extension for a program called Rainmeter. Start by installing that. Then, open the .rmskin file you downloaded for this skin/plugin and install it. Next, in Rainmeter, you will see a few folders in the Skins tab. Click through them until you reach your desired .ini file a click load. You can then position it to your liking by dragging.

How can I change the date to Portuguese? (Names of months and days)
N-War Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2018
This is also the setting in my RainMeter configuration. Who can help?
Do you have to change anything for full day names? "Fri" works without issues, "Friday" is cut off as "riday".

Figured it out. I had the wrong version (horiz/vert) active. Stupid me. ;-)

Love this skin! Any way someone smarter than me could turn it into a countdown? For say, the Chicago Marathon on October 8, 2017 at 0800 / 8AM CST? :D

Whoa!!! That's an amazing skin!!
sirpoon Featured By Owner May 31, 2017
Oops, my bad. It is funky but here's how you do this: When you're in the Manage Rainmeter app (right-click it in the system tray and click Manage), go to the Skins tab.

Now, select the Elegance2 skin and expand. Scroll down to the Config.ini file and select it. Now click the 'Load' button on the right just as you would for the other widgets. Voila! My apologies, lilshizzy.

Would be nice to use it but the color changer and the configuration tool are not included in the download.

I can't get weather to work to save my life. I've nevered my code 100 times, looked through the interal coding, and can't really find a place to put it there either. Can I get some help? I love this skin.

machmanx Featured By Owner May 14, 2016
I know has an updated api and it could be the same for yahoo weather.  I mean this hasn't been updated since 2011.  But you can fix it by editing the weather_1 file.  How to change, well, read the following: https: // forum .rainmeter .net/ viewtopic.php? t=23010  .  I don't use the weather in this app so I'll leave it to someone else to figure it out.  However the 1st post indicates going from api to xml.  I dunno if that is compatible with this.  There's a link in that post for a Weather Skin Tutorial.

Why cant I snap the time to the right edge of the screen, nor the bottom of the screen? I want to put it right above the taskbar, but I am atleast a good 50-100 pixels higher, not to mention 50-100 pixels from the right edge as well. Can you hypothesize?

The color changer doesn't change the fonts used for cpu, ram, etc.
can't see anything on a dark back ground wallpaper
other than that, the skin is beautiful

I love this skin, the grey font is messing up with lots of backgrounds tho... kinda limiting my choices for what to use as a background cuz it wont be seen on a pure black background.....
