I’ve been fiddling with a custom theme for Rainmeter for a little while now, inspired by Windows 8 and Metro style.
I’ve provided a few tiles as seen in the preview, but also brief instructions on easily making your own to launch whatever you like.
Many of the images are a result of Google Image search. If I’ve accidentally used your work without realizing please let me know and I’ll either remove it from the package or credit you happily!
Comments and suggestions are welcome!
And one last thing- if anyone can think of a better name for this package feel free to let me know!
FYI: Location links are based on Windows 7 Libraries; so if you use custom libraries, or are on Vista or earlier, you’ll need to change the paths for them. Info on doing so is in the readme!
Another Note: I’ve made and tested this using a 1080p 16:9 resolution, so just how well it displays on smaller resolutions is a little bit unknown. But best of luck to any who try
Variations of this style can be found here [link]

Skin Details & Instructions
The DK Tiles rainmeter skin was developed and created by TheMooDude and was originally published on DeviantArt Jun 17, 2011.
To open up and configure any settings for the DK Tiles theme, simply double click on the time, date or day of week. Once clicked, you will be presented with a popup with all the settings to configure DK Tiles to your needs.
For the DK Tiles weather widget to work correctly, you need to set your weather code within the settings menu.
Yes, the DK Tiles rainmeter theme does support Spotify however you won’t be able to see the progress of the song. Only the buttons (stop, pause, skip) and song name will work. To fix the progress bar issue you will need to configure the variables within the player.ini to webnowplayer or use spicetify widget.
You can resize any DK Tiles widget (date, time, day of week text, recycle bin and Spotify) by scrolling your mouse UP and DOWN.
