The round corners and center taskbar icons will do for now.
Good question, it's this free app: https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx
Let's you center it and make the taskbar transparent. Makes for a very clean windows desktop
Hey just a FYI, TaskbarX can do this automatically and offers a bit more customization if that's your thing. I switch between monitors and different resolutions a lot so its made my life a lot easier.
For the centre icons and transparency I actually use StartIsBack because I also themed my start menu and it can also theme the taskbar... but there is a tweak called TaskBarX which is what most people use to make the taskbar transparent and centre the icons & its free :)
Only thing in my taskbar Rainmeter related is the music player.For the centre icons and transparency I actually use StartIsBack because I also themed my start menu and it can also theme the taskbar... but there is a tweak called TaskBarX which is what most people use to make the taskbar transparent and centre the icons & its free :)
use TaskbarX instead of TranslucentTB, it lets you autocenter icons as well as make it transparent and has more customization than TranslucentTB (also has its own rainmeter skin made by the dev)
Thanks! I'm using TaskbarX for the transparency on the W10 stock taskbar, the other skins I've made myself with some youtube tutorials lol. Currently working on a volume slider for the custom taskbar. Windows theme is Nord by Niivu

Googling TaskbarX led me to the website which speaks about this very issue:
> Error Windows cannot find 'shell:AppsFolder\Chris... after uninstalling Store version? At the moment the Store has no option to remove a taskschedule. So it has to be done manually until Microsoft provides a solution. Here's how to fix it. In your startmenu search for "Task Scheduler". On the left menu click on "Task Scheduler Library". In the middle a list will appear. Right click on the "TaskbarX" or "FalconX" entry and click "Delete".
It really depends on exactly what you want to modify, so it may be better if you give an example of that.
Rainmeter is still king when it comes to desktop "widget" customizations.
For other parts of the desktop:
Wallpaper: Wallpaper Engine (Not free)
There is also a small community on DeviantArt for full windows themes (just search 'win10 themes deviant art'), but these modify your system so be careful with them.
For more, you can checkout /r/desktops , Most posts have the customizations/mods in the comments.
Rather than using the blank folder toolbar for centering the icons maybe give TaskbarX a try.
Makes it a little easier, has some neat effects, $1.49 on Microsoft Store or free download from the link I gave.
Clock and Weather Widget
1.Install the Skin- as i am using the leek-Jdws02-skin further steps will be accordingly
2.win+r and open or type in the blank " shell:AppsFolder ".
Create the shortcuts of the apps you need which will be added on the desktop you can always hide them.
open windows explorer documents >rainmeter>Skins>jdws-02>leek> open file named leek.ini
5.open file in notepad under [DATE] section add " LeftMouseUpAction=["C:\..........Calendar.lnk"] " path name to the shortcut of the app on desktop, make sure the shortcut name to be accurate.
Do the same under Weather and day section to open weather app and calendar app respectively. and Reload the Skin.
you can also download a Taskbar X skin (here i have modified the Rainmeter Neutral Skin -which is modified from transparent to blur for personal preference) its just an easier method to enable the taskbar x, even though it will be running the taskbar x in the background, it just saves time by not downloading Taskbar X separately. if you need more control and customization over taskbar then i would u suggest to use the taskbar x configurator.
I just used this thing called taskbarX which makes your taskbar transparent and aligns all the icons to the middle taskbarX after downloading taskbarX it will appear in your rainmeter app and you can just load it from there .
Icon centered taskbar

You can customize using third party softwares. I used windows light theme, custom taskbar icons, and taskbarx to move the icons to center. There's no effect in performance.
It’s very simple really. Three ways to make it look nice.
1) Right click your desktop -> view -> untick show desktop icons.
Find a nice wallpaper.
Install TaskbarX (you can get it for $1 from Microsoft store or here https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx) and use it to toggle your taskbar for centre icons and transparency. This is all I did for my desktop in the photo.
2) Download Wallpaper engine from steam. Wallpaper engine allows you to include custom effects on your wallpaper like snow drifting down, light particles, fog, etc. or download pre made custom sets.
It also has a really cool feature that syncs automatically with synapse to configure your chroma for you according to the wallpaper colours.
3) Follow some of the online guides on youtube. Rainmeter or Nexus dock are some examples of freeware that makes your desktop beautiful.
I recommend watching Tanjim the Tech Guy (https://youtu.be/xHj0juUACFk)
Let me know if you’ve any more questions! Enjoy :)
Nord Theme for Windows 10 by niivu
Metro style info:
Taskbar: TaskbarX Rainmeter Skin x64
Everything else: Omnimo 10
Uso este programa.
Una vez que lo descargues, vas a "TaskbarConfiguration", y en la opcion "Position" fijate que NO este tildada la opcion "Don't center Taskbar".
Para mi queda re fachero asi, y aunque al principio sea medio incomodo (lo tengo hace re poco de esta forma jajja) es solo acostumbrarse.
Any skin on this LIST can be used. Just choose one you would like and that closely matches your wallpaper.
As for taskbar, I use TaskbarX and it's very popular
From the developer of "taskbar X"
At the moment the Store has no option to remove a taskschedule. So it has to be done manually until Microsoft provides a solution. Here's how to fix it. In your startmenu search for "Task Scheduler". On the left menu click on "Task Scheduler Library". In the middle a list will appear. Right click on the "TaskbarX" or "FalconX" entry and click "Delete".
At first i was using a app called TranslucentTB, it can be found on Microsoft store. After further browsing on this reddit, i figured TaskbarX is more flexible and widely known
Here : https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx
I used TaskbarX to make the icons in the taskbar centered; https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx
I couldn't get rainmeter to work but here's a link anyway; rainmeter.net
Background is made by me using blender :)
I highly recommend https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx . I used it before I moved away from windows. You can make your taskbar completely transparent, center items, and it never broke. I don't have much experience with rainmeter, but I often hear it breaks, this app doesn't. At least, it didn't for me.
I used TaskbarX, Lines 2.0 and Poor Man's Calender.
For the taskbar i used TaskbarX, with the blur config
for the wallpaper i used wallpaper engine, with this wallpaper, with this color scheme: #214660 , and the close-up watchtower
If you install the rainmeter version of TaskbarX you'll get the transparent windows 10 taskbar with centered icons. You can further customize it afterwards in the "skin" ini file. I'm using it myself on two of my laptops ʕᵔᴥᵔʔ
Do you mean you are looking for a center taskbar for Windows 10? If so this is what I am using and have no problems with a triple monitor setup.

Unfortunately it does not flip literally like a Flip Clock. I'd love to learn how to script it though. anyway, I made two versions—light and dark. I modified this from Tanjim the Tech Guy's YT Video Give Your Desktop a Minimal, Functional and Elegant Look if you guys are interested checking it out.
The Theme is inspired from Fliqlo Screensaver, if you guys would see the resemblance tho hahaha.
Another Featured Rmskin from TaskbarX
TaskbarX can center and make your task bar translucent at the same time and its free if you download the "portable Zip" version. to configure it open the zip folder and find the "taskbarX config.exe file
im running it on my desktop and it works great.

I do, though i have a dual system rig so I'm planning to put manjaro on that and see how it look on this, i use a simple exe called TaskbarX really nice piece of software that isn't taxing at all.
I feel bad for you bro just install the free version which is not buggy like the Microsoft store version. Try returning taskbar to Microsoft store and get this instead
TaskbarX to center the icons and add acrylic effect to the taskbar.
Wallpaper is part of this theme: Mountain Light Premium
Yeah it's the beta version 20H2, Build 19042.508. Many icons of Microsoft's apps have been updated. I've used TaskbarX to center the icons and add acrylic effect to the taskbar.
Clean look, Taskbar X on store (if you want to support the developer) or here for free and the wallpaper.
If you're talking about repl.it, it's a site where you can code, with a debugger. You can use it for free

Wow, I was just going through new and this just stuck out from the rest
I can tell you’re a perfectionist lol
Some recommendations -
Disable task bar on the second monitor, just right click taskbar, go to taskbar settings and turn off “show taskbar on all displays.”
Get TranslucentTB, makes your taskbar blurred and it’s like a must IMO just search it in windows store and once installed, go to the tray icon and enable blur on all options
and last, get TaskBarX. It centers your pinned taskbar icons like what their doing with windows 10X. Looks muchhhh better.
Here’s a link, download the portable version and install
I use taskbarX from the MS store (linked to creator's website in case you'd rather install from github). Its pretty neat and straightforward. You can center your taskbar icons and choose different presets to customize the taskbar (default, transparent, blur, acrylic)
There's also 7-taskbar-tweaker. I've never used it but I've seen a lot of rainmeter customs use it! I think it has more customization options but not sure if you can center your icons with it
Wallpaper: Some game screenshot that was on my drive from years ago, minecraft with shaders I think.
Oh, I didn't use the translucent taskbar skin. I used TaskbarX, it's free but there's a paid versions if you want more. It not only centers the taskbar, it has styles like transparent, blur, and acrylic. :)
Set color to Light in windows settings.
wallpaper : here
To center taskbar icons : taskbarx
Icons list : Download here.
To change icons of apps, right click on an app on taskbar -> right click again on name -> properties -> change icon.
There are translucent taskbars for Rainmeter, but most people use TaskbarX. You can find it in the Microsoft store for like $3 or download the zip file from the creators website for free, here.
It is a blur effect which takes into account the background - it's not 100% transparent.
You need some other software to make it completely transparent. I use TaskBarX/FalconX (https://chrisandriessen.nl/taskbarx/)
Wallpaper is Steam Wallpaper Engine
Minimal taskbar customization with TaskbarX.
Dash on the bottom left can be found here dope shit link 1

Tried to see what it would look like if MacOS and Windows had a baby.
Any other ideas what to add?
Hope you like 'WinOS'!
Fourth suite and I don’t stop creating abominations. Enjoy it and tell me what do you think about it :)
