I want a DesktopX for Win 10.

 

Is there anything DesktopX could do that XWidgets or Rainmeter can't?

Quoting BigDogBigFeet,

I want a DesktopX for Win 10.



 

Is there anything DesktopX could do that XWidgets or Rainmeter can't?  

I use Rainmeter for the Steampunk themed items.... not so much XWidget, though I haven't checked it out enough to know what is available.

On another note.....

There's only one thing I've asked for in ObjectDesktop, and that's to be able to add and store desktop shortcuts to IconPackager so that they can be changed in the one operation rather than having to change each individually to match the applied theme each time it is changed.. 

It shouldn't be too difficult a proposition, adding a menu item to find the items, either by creating a pathway process or using drag and drop  It would make Iconpackager a more complete and useful customisation program.

In the plus year that I've been asking I have never received an answer one way or the other

I would like to see windowblinds and skinstudio update, so it would be possible to change the color of the text on the left side of the windows explorer, also in skinstudio so it is possible to open different skins in tabs

Is anyone still skinning Xion?  That was a powerful skinning engine that was really easy to created with because it used layers (and layer names) as controls.  I wish SKS used something similar.

The old ShadowFX was really powerful (and fun) but as shadows were incorporated into Windowblinds it became less exciting.  I LOVED the dynamic lighting (that you can sort of see in the CursorFX shadows if you enable it).

I use to skin Xion, a lot (but sadly it's not being used/downloaded much), loved how it worked, from a skinning perspective.  I too loved how it used layers, and how it handled animations as well, to incorporate that into SKS, would be awesome.

Haven't skinned Xion in a long time. For some obscure reason it doesn't play nice with Win 10 on my machine. I might try it again. Maybe....
