Featured Desktop: Andy Muehlhausen

Posted: 12 Feb 2012 01:49 AM PST

This is the attractive and functional desktop of composer and Windows-user Andy Muehlhausen. Click each screenshot to view it full size. I’ll let Andy describe his desktop in his own words.

I have a firm belief that Windows can be just as visually appealing as OS. And, with a little work (and no $$$), it can even look better and function with more ease than a Mac.

“Photo 1 really shows off Rainmeter. I’m only using the Omnimo plugin, which is Rainmeter’s star pupil. All stats (gmail, volume, weather, battery charge, recycling, etc…) are updated in real-time. Everything is clickable.”

“Photo 2 shows off Stardock Fences (for hiding things secretly on my desktop via double click) and my customized start orb & navigation buttons (, and start menu & open/close/minimize buttons. (Leaf theme!)”

“Photo 3 & 4 show how, even with a million things open and hiding my desktop, Windows 7 lets you push WIN+SPACE and peek at its underlying glory. Now you can always check your email, notes, the weather, date, time, battery charge, network signal strength, CPU load, RAM load, network usage, and volume in a single keystroke. Glory be.”

What do you think of Andy's desktop? Let us know in the comments.

Would you like your desktop featured on Envato Notes? Upload your screenshot somewhere on the Web and let us know about it on our Write a Post page. Or upload it to Flickr and tag it with #envatonotesdesktops. Either way, add an interesting description. Each week we'll choose and publish a new screenshot.
