Should probably explain what specifically you're looking for. Monitoring programs are pretty easy to find, but customization is a bit more exotic.

"Look better"? That's very subjective. What you think looks better I might think looks hideous. My "flame blue" F150 is obviously gorgeous and yet my neighbor's plain Jane red F150 is downright ugly ugly ugly.

I personally don't like the appearance of the W10's desktop and start menu. So I use and recommend Start10 to bring back the familiar W7 Start menu and desktop and for just a one-time cost of $5 for a lifetime license, it is well worth it.

And of course Windows itself lets you personalize your desktop with your own background images.

I second this thread. Have used about a dozen software to make Win10 look, FEEL & perform very much like WinXP, even down to the control panel, directory structure, curvature of windows, etc. Initially, the weak performance of my Win10 doesn't affect me. But really... Two seconds to navigate each folder on a SSD versus less than one second on WinXP on the same PC as well as another much weaker laptop with PATA HDD. It's wearing my patience down. Pretty much gave up after I couldn't get them to suit my taste. The search bar/box next to the start menu is pretty useful though. Basically replaces the start menu for me as it allows to look for programs faster than looking through the start menu just by short typing.
My "flame blue" F150 is obviously gorgeous and yet my neighbor's plain Jane red F150 is downright ugly ugly ugly.
Both looks awesome to me. The blue one (your vehicle?) has the better rear view mirror (subjective), though... And the vehicle is shinier too (factual... unless blind :roll:)...

I used to be fussy about my desktop. But then I came to my senses. I mean how much time do you spend staring at your desktop? Once I fire up my browser, Word, or whatever app I'm using, the desktop is just something in the background. If anything, I want it to act like my computer case - that is, to just sit quietly and discreetly out of the way and NOT bring attention to itself. As long as I can easily find what I am looking for, then fine. And like every OS and OS version I have used before, once I get past the short learning curve, finding what I want is easy - even with W10.

That's true, though my case is rather different. Every new file I downloaded or created would need to be placed in it's proper directory folder. I also move files around a lot, so I'm looking at Windows & folders more often than I would like to. And this sluggish (& rather ugly too) OS will one day break my spirit. Do I need more RAM? Is 4 GB not enough? Is my CPU not enough? *sigh* :shadedshu:

so I'm looking at Windows & folders more often than I would like to.
Now wait. If you are looking at folders and and moving files about, then you are using File Explorer or some other file manager. That is, NOT the desktop and has nothing to do with the desktop, except, perhaps with how you start File Explorer. So again, once you fire up the app (in this case, File Explorer), the desktop moves into the background and even takes on a much lower priority in terms of system resources. And while the amount of RAM certainly affects file manipulation performance, it has nothing to do with the desktop's appearance - the topic here.

Just installed PowerToys because I run an ultrawide and its glorious!

When I hit shift and drag windows now, I can allocate them to a zone, and they get sized for it immediately

And that is just the tip of the iceberg, this app has tons of useful desktop functionality.
Bonus points for being supported by MS

This is not for cosmetics though, its purely functional.

Do remember if you have lots of things on your desktop, it can impact boot and desktop refresh speeds. There are some who claim it impacts performance, but that is not true. Still, if you value fast boot times (especially if you have a hard drive as your boot drive), you may want to minimize the number of desktop items you have.

Frankly, for me, I find having too many shortcuts on my desktop presents a cluttered appearance and even makes finding what I want harder. So I try to keep those numbers at a minimum. I do that by enabling and using the Quicklaunch toolbar (hidden by Microsoft since w7 :(), and using a couple folders on my desktop to keep related items in instead of several individual shortcuts.

For your favorite app
place it in the upper right hand corner (where the close X is)
That's where I place my goto search and media player app.. Quick to stop it and to restart... again and again.

And for those who have 100 favorite apps?

Pretty sure the problem is dealing with 10s or dozens of favorites apps and shortcuts, not 1 or 2.

My app has way more useful features than any of your 100's of favorites.. Is my guess.
That's just it. It's YOUR GUESS! What you believe to be more useful might not be for others and vice-versa.
For your favorite app
place it in the upper right hand corner (where the close X is)
That's where I place my goto search and media player app.. Quick to stop it and to restart... again and again.
And then BOOM! You accidentally exit the app... again and again...
Also, "Quick to stop it and to restart" just means that you're just fooling around with the app. Not a "useful feature" to be found there.

It's called jamming it..
When randomly watching my videos... It may select one that I have seen recently... Soooo I kill it and restart it immediately with the defaults set to random and away it goes with the next one.

Random eliminates boredom PERIOD

Benchmark Scores It sucks...
It's called jamming it..
When randomly watching my videos... It may select one that I have seen recently... Soooo I kill it and restart it immediately with the defaults set to random and away it goes with the next one.

Random eliminates boredom PERIOD
Makes sense... :clap:
If it works to kill your boredom, then all the more power to you. :toast:
