Rainmeter 3.2 Beta


Rainmeter is the best known and most popular desktop customization program for Windows. Enhance your Windows computer at home or work with skins; handy, compact applets that float freely on your desktop. Rainmeter skins provide you with useful information at a glance. It's easy to keep an eye on your system resources, like memory and battery power, or your online data streams, including email, RSS feeds, and weather forecasts.

Many skins are even functional: they can record your notes and to-do lists, launch your favorite applications, and control your media player - all in a clean, unobtrusive interface that you can rearrange and customize to your liking. Rainmeter is at once an application and a toolkit. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.

Rainmeter is open source software for Windows XP/Vista/7/8 distributed free of charge under the terms of the GNU GPL v2 license.

Changes in Rainmeter 3.2:

  • Fixed Rainmeter: Corrected an issue where the #SCREENAREAWIDTH# / #SCREENAREAHEIGHT# built-in variables would not initially detect the monitor the skin was loaded on until a refresh.
  • Fixed Layouts: Corrected an issue where the list of Layouts in Manage / Layouts could be off by one if the @Backup Layout was missing.
  • Fixed Power plugin: Corrected a STATUS issue when the battery level is higher than "low", but not currently charging.
  • Changed Language: Updates to Russian language.

I used Rainmeter in the past and may use it again. Is it still as nice to have as before in terms of desktop customization or not?

Yes, Rainmeter is probably the most popular and lightest desktop customization tool there is (next to xwidget). It uses very little resources and there's hundreds of skins to choose from.

They mess up a lot of settings and once installed, it becomes very hard to get back to the original state unless the system restore feature is active in your system..
