Rainmeter Skins 2016

25 Gorgeous Rainmeter Skins You Should Use

The Windows operating system is, and has always been a pretty customizable one. However, the majority of this customization is limited to changing the occasional wallpaper or using the many official and third-party/custom Windows 10 themes. Thankfully, there are quite a few programs available out there that let you tweak your Windows desktop to the fullest, with Rainmeter being arguably the most popular of them. Rainmeter skins can completely overhaul the look of your device, and in this article, we bring you the 25 best Rainmeter skins you can use in 2023.

What is Rainmeter?

Rainmeter is a free desktop customization program that lets you completely transform the way your desktop looks. It can be used to display a truckload of extra information (clock, network statistics, processor usage) on the desktop, which itself can be tweaked in unimaginable ways, thanks to the countless skins available for the same.

It goes without saying, in order to use these skins, you need to have Rainmeter (download) installed on your Windows PC. It’s compatible with all Windows versions, from XP to Windows 10; it should also work fine with Windows 11, as we tested in our separate tutorial on making Windows look like macOS.

Best Rainmeter Skins (2023)

If you too use Rainmeter to get that granular customization on your Windows PC. Here are absolutely beautiful Rainmeter skins that you should check out.

1. Mond

Mond is my favorite Rainmeter skin solely because of how well it goes with the wallpaper. The wallpaper I am using is from Reddit and it’s named Neon Gas Station (check it out). On top of that, the Mond skin is very customizable and allows you to add multiple widgets on the desktop. However, keep in mind, the Spotify integration does not work out of the box so you will have to install a separate plugin. You can get the plugin from the link mentioned below. Overall, Mond skin is minimalistic, light and does not hog your computer resources in the background.

FLHUD is another awesome Rainmeter skin that I often use on my laptop. It makes things much easier since you have a top-bar widget with customizable hyperlinks, a Spotify visualizer, and lastly the date and time widget. The moment I am on my desktop I can switch to any website within seconds and that is awesome. Apart from that, I have used the ‘You are Here’ wallpaper (check it out) from Reddit and it goes pretty well with the overall Rainmeter setup. If you wish, you can hide the taskbar as well to add more widgets.

3. Ageo

Ageo is a minimal Rainmeter skin that brings a material look to your desktop with a cool music player; date, time, and weather widget, and a running widget for motivational quotes. How awesome is that? Apart from that, you have a dock similar to macOS and it’s wholly customizable. Moreover, what I found interesting about this skin is that it does not slow down my i5-powered laptop. So, if you want to try out this Rainmeter skin, head over to the link below. I am using a minimalist nature wallpaper (check it out) for this one.

4. Moderate

The reason I am mentioning Moderate skin is that it looks very similar to the Android user interface. It has got a launcher, quick settings toggle, music controls – everything is available on the home screen. If you have a touchscreen laptop then I would highly recommend this material Rainmeter skin. And to give a familiar aesthetic look between the skin and desktop background, I have used ‘Futuristic City’ wallpaper (check it out) from Reddit. Overall, I love this Rainmeter skin and you should definitely try it on your computer.

5. The Gemini Suite

The Gemini Suite is a simple Rainmeter skin with CPU, RAM, and storage widget and a date-time widget on top. However, there are a few interesting things about this skin. You can add your choice of games and apps in the left widget. Additionally, you can integrate your Steam account to instantly open and launch games. The best part is that Xbox Game Bar is also part of this skin and you can launch many gaming tools in one click. And the wallpaper is embedded with the skin so that is great. Simply put, if you are a gamer then give a shot at The Gemini Suite skin.

6. Sonder

If you’re looking for a minimalistic looking theme with a nature-inspired aesthetic, you’ll feel right at home with Sonder skin. It uses green accents on the clock, calendar, weather, and CPU stats. Combined with TaskbarX for a centered transparent taskbar, this Rainmeter skin should elevate your home screen. Moreover, the skin still has active development, so you should be getting new features in the future.

7. IronMan-Jarvis

You don’t really have to be Tony Stark to get your own J.A.R.V.I.S powered computer, as the IronMan-Jarvis Rainmeter skin will work out just fine. It’s super customizable, having multiple modules that can be easily repositioned. Some of the information displayed includes Clock/Date, Hard disk capacity and Temperature details, RSS feeds, and of course, shortcuts to the system folders (e.g. My Documents), emerging from the arc reactor core.



8. Avengers SHIELD OS

Although gathering (and coordinating) your own team of superheroes in real life can a be little tough, you can always play Nick Fury while sitting at your computer, thanks to Avengers SHIELD OS Rainmeter skin. It’s available in multiple resolutions and includes handy shortcuts to frequently accessed applications like Browser and Media Player. Other stuff includes Volume control, Media playback/control bar, RAM and CPU usage display, shutdown & restart buttons, and most importantly, the S.H.I.E.L.D Eagle tag.

9. Senja Suite

If you’re a fan of minimalism, you’re going to love Senja Suite. Lightweight and clean, it’s a Rainmeter skin that just takes care of the basics, but does them extremely well, without throwing too much stuff in your face. The information displayed includes Time, a User profile button with an expandable bar for System folder shortcuts, a slideshow of favorite pictures, Media information with control buttons, and Shutdown/Restart/Log off buttons.

If there’s a skin that perfectly illustrates how much a background wallpaper is important to customization, it’s ALIENS. It’s a brilliantly designed Rainmeter skin that only makes sense when paired with the companion Aliens wallpaper that comes with it. The modules are configurable and include everything from Disk partition shortcuts and Power status to Network upload/download speeds and System time and date.



11. Eker Lina

One of most beautifully designed Rainmeter skins out there, Eker Lina consists of numerous sub-modules that look like small widgets, with each having a consistent design. Due to this, the skin’s sub-elements can be arranged as per requirements to create all sorts of great-looking layouts. Eker Lina can display lots of data, such as System folder and drive shortcuts, Media controls, RSS feeds, Time & Date, and Current weather.

12. Spiderman

Who doesn’t fancy a Spiderman theme? Well, we certainly do and that’s exactly why this theme has made it to our list. The skin brings Spiderman-inspired icons to your desktop, which complements the wallpaper (present in My Documents/ Rainmeter/ Skins/ Spiderman). Moreover, you’ll find all the essential stats including download & upload speeds, disk info, and memory info in the left-side menu.

13. Before Dawn

Probably the easiest to set up Rainmeter skin out there, Before Dawn requires zero tweaking. All you have to do is just run it and it appears as a stunning, information-laced bar spanning the entire width of the desktop. Before Dawn presents information in a highly legible way, and the content it displays includes Time & Date, Shortcuts to frequently access programs and websites, Subscribed RSS feeds, and Current location temperature.

It’s not always essential for you to clutter your Windows 10 desktop with widgets. There’s the off-chance that you’re looking for clean and tranquil skin with almost no distractions. Well, MNML UI offers you just that. It’s a collection of pleasant and modern clock and date widgets that could elevate your desktop experience in no time (pun intended!).

15. Big Sur

Are you a Windows user who craves all those macOS Big Sur widgets? Fortunately, this skin is exactly what you’re looking for. It brings a bunch of widgets including a music player, system, calendar, to-do list, clock, calendar, weather, volume and brightness toggles, and more. One unique aspect of the skin is that you get the latest news articles right on your desktop.

16. T-R-A-N-S-F-O-R-M-E-X Mod

Are you ready to dial it back to the 2010s and catch a hint of this Rainmeter skin, which looks like JetAudio took over your entire Windows desktop? Dubbed T-R-A-N-S-F-O-R-M-E-X, this skin is quite nostalgic and permits you to add everything from the CPU, RAM, SWAP, location, and weather info on the desktop. You also get 3D icons for programs and power functions at the bottom, with a visualizer-like background.

17. Enigma

Probably one of the most (if not the most) downloaded Rainmeter skins of all time, you can spend hours at a stretch configuring Enigma. In fact, it’s so amazing that it was chosen as Rainmeter’s default skin in 2009. Enigma can show just about every piece of system (and other) information you can think of. All of its sub-modules are highly configurable and can be individually re-arranged. Some of the stuff Enigma can show on the desktop includes World time and Weather, Media playback status/control, multiple RSS feeds, Picture slideshow, CPU and RAM usage, Quick notes, Real-time active processes, and then some more.



18. Speed


Yet another skin with frosted glass and transparency effects, Speed looks great when matched with muted and minimal wallpapers. All of the skin’s sub-modules have a consistent look and can be re-arranged to suit desktops of different resolutions. It can display system Time/Date, RSS feeds, Network status, Unread email count, CPU/RAM usage (via neat-looking gauges), and of course, Temperature with three-day forecast.


19. Wisp

What makes Wisp unique is the fact that its sub-elements don’t really have any “containing” boundaries, so they appear as they are written or drawn directly on the desktop background, rather than appearing as discrete widgets. This can make for some really amazing-looking desktop when Wisp is paired with the right wallpaper. The neat-looking skin features modules for displaying information such as disk partitions’ space usage, Temperature, System date and time, CPU/RAM usage, and Network bandwidth consumption.



20. Simple Media

True to its name, Simple Media is one of the simpler-looking and basic skins that you can find for Rainmeter. But despite being basic and having only the essential information displaying sub-modules, Simple Media looks pretty great, thanks to a great-looking font and a design that works well on almost all kinds of desktops, regardless of resolution. The included modules can be used to display the current Date and Time, Recycle Bin status, as well as the current Temperature, and there are multiple variants available for all three.

21. LIM!T

If you don’t really care for complicated looks, and prefer something that conveys more meaning via mere text, LIM!T is definitely a Rainmeter skin worth checking it. Composed almost entirely of big, clean fonts, it conveys lots of information by filling up the inside(s) of the textual content, based on what information that text is displaying (e.g. the minute numbers are filled up steadily, and increment after reaching full mark, every 60 seconds). The information displayed includes Date/Time, CPU and RAM usage, Current media playback status, and Weather statistics.



22. Cyberpunk 2077

After multiple delays, we finally have Cyberpunk 2077 on all leading platforms. If you just can’t get enough of the game, this skin should help you step up your desktop’s look and feel. You get essential desktop shortcuts for quick access along with time, CPU info, download and upload speeds, and system info.

23. Circle Launcher

Microsoft gives you the option to add software icons to the taskbar or desktop but if you want to further customize the look of your desktop, then circle launcher can help. As the name suggests, it will enable you to add circle icons to launch programs or games on the desktop. The icons turn white when hovered, adding to the appeal of this Rainmeter skin, which currently has about 150 icons in its collection.

24. Elegance 2

Another skin purpose-built for lovers of minimalism, Elegance 2, much like its name, conveys essential system information in an elegant way. It’s extremely lightweight and blends in amazingly with the original desktop background image. The information is presented using legibly designed fonts and includes time & date, CPU & RAM usage stats, Media playback, and control, along with details about Recycle Bin items.

25. Minimalist 2

Bored with the same old Windows desktop and want to upgrade to something minimal? If your answer is yes, then Minimalist 2 could be the perfect Rainmeter skin you have been looking for. It is true to its name and gives you the power to track multiple features such as battery percentage, storage, CPU, and RAM usage on the left and shortcuts to software and folders on the right. You can also add weather, time, and date widgets and change the wallpaper to adjust the vibe.

  1. HI Beebom, as you showed above the skins, I am having a problem with the Mond skin. I downloaded the Mond skin from Visualskins.com. The Visualskins also show the Rainmeter skins and also downloads .rmskin. skin. I am facing the weather part. When I go to the URL given by the Mond Developer, it comes written, It has been Decapitated. Can you suggest anything, what to do.
    Awaiting your answer.
    youtube viewer.

    1. The weather website they used is no longer active. Find a dev that uses a weather website that is still active.

  2. Those were the hottest skins back when I was using rainmeter in the day. The year was 2010(?) give or take 3 years cause my memory isn’t as good as it used to. Point being, if those very same skins are still the hottest in 2020 that means that there is very little community left in the skinning area regarding Rainmeter. Sad really.

  3. I don’t understand ppl mocking those choices, these are great “one-size-might-fit-all” skins that must be considered for customization beginners.

    Rainmeter modular nature allows one to consider every module as a template for personal modifications and you can work with several modules from different skins to build your own style, which might be the real shit for any experienced tweaker like me and some other ppl. So just stop complaining and let beginners have some fun.

    1. His point is, you can have all the modularity in the world, if the modules output does not work, you are wasting your time on 13 year old apps.

    1. Bro shut the hell up. That is you opinion. And not only is your opinion wrong, but using exclamation marks at the end of your sentence is one of the most cringy things EVER.

  4. Try T-R-A-N-F-O-R-M-X-mode is the best of the best if you’ve never used before…..Thank me later

  5. Best Rainmeter skin for Windows 10 is Win10Widgets, perfectly matches the theme of windows 10 being both simplistic and aesthetically pleasing
