A Rainmeter skin consisting of themed desktop elements and utilities.
This includes a small amount of wallpaper interactivity; some objects in the wallpaper can be clicked to open certain menus. You must run the trigger auto-scaling program first for these to work correctly. Default trigger settings for 1600×900.
Wallpaper included, here’s the sta.sh link

color changes and crop to 16:9
[Fix] Changed Weather data provider
?????? 1.0 Initial Release
190322 1.1 Changes to news system
All skins and programming are 100% OC!
Displays date and time. You can choose the color black or “color0” in the config menu. Text in this skin can be hidden in the config menu, for the sole purpose of visualizer support.
Hitbox Auto-Scale Program
Use this tool to automatically configure hitbox objects to the wallpaper. Open on first run
and on changing screen zoom settings. Only tested for 16:9 aspect ratio. If you scale and/or offset the wallpaper, you will need to reprogram this tool,
and it will become easier to directly hard-code the hitbox shapes.
