    hi there, i searched thru the forum and i didn't find a thread like that (i hope i searched enough :roll: )

    so here is the idea: show your desktop (current or past), be it a wallpaper or a full Rainmeter custom UI, just to share idea or to show what you like, a bit of pixel and less silicium no branded fan war just design and customization.
    don't forget to hide any hentai game icon or porn folder ;) before taking the screenshot :roll: (joking)

    for starts:

    (updated) current:
    Oshino Shinobu bakemonogatari wp, Rainmeter: kept the 3 Avenger launcher otherwise it is a full set called BangBang added some meter and modified the arrangement + Winamp: Hatsune Miku Love Is War skin
    Oshino.jpg

    c'mon show off!:D

    This is my current desktop image. Still cannot figure out how to upload the "Desktop" image. TPU capture does not work on the desktop.

    Windows 7 has a built in "snipping tool"

    1) Start>Type "snipping tool"
    2) Click the "new" button
    3) Click the "full screen" option
    4) Save to wherever you save your pics to
    5) Name it something descriptive
    6) Upload it using the "upload a file" button below

    I prefer snipping tool becuase it's quicker for me LOL.

    I also got PRNT SCRN in dropbox so it will save it to dropbox automatically.
