Wow, I haven't been around for a while. Seems no one shows their desktops any more. I remember each month, by the end of the month there was pages of people posting screenshot of their desktops. How times have changed

I find that no one really posts anymore because when it comes to customisation, we have mostly seen it all before. 
Mine hasnt changed for months, 

Heres mine anyway, maybe will inspire others to post. :)

I think all the customisation went away when people moved on from XP. In the XP days I remember having custom icon packs that would replace near enough every icon on Windows, custom themes, login screens, mouse pointers and even boot screens. After all that it was worth showing off your days / weeks of tweaking.

 

These days you can set a login screen background, Windows also supports choosing the colour of the start menu, title bars, taskbar and action centre out the box.


I used to use the last free version of ObjectDock for a long time after I moved on from XP. However Windows gained ability to pin apps to the taskbar, which made having a dock containing all the apps I frequently used a bit redundant, although I did use it out of habit for years.

 

My desktop these days is essentially a simple background with the task bar, even my start menu is the most minimal it can be:

Less is more, I just want something simple that isn't cluttered.

Welll customizing was still pretty strong after WinXP on Windows 7. After that not so much. But I still enjoy it and just don’t do it a frequently anymore.

Kubuntu 1910, very similar look for me after a couple of tweaks but a solid release so far.
