Free open source tool for customizing Windows 10 and earlier desktop. This open source tool allows you to change the display of the Windows desktop with the following tools: clock, grid, etc.

Rainmeter allows you to use the desktop as an application, not just to open the start menu, search and applications.

For example, Windows 10's default desktop software package allows you to monitor the network speed of your entire desktop and submit it to the Google search bar.

Rainmeter is a background tool. You can download various shapes and layouts created by Rainmeter users from the forum.

Lively Wallpaper:

An open source tool that allows you to convert videos, GIFs, and HTML into Windows 10 wallpapers.

The experience is similar to android dynamic wallpaper. When launching the app in full screen mode to reduce memory usage, the wallpaper will pause.

With this application you can set the following formats as laptop wallpaper:

  •     the video.
  •     website.
  •     Transfer the video.
  •     Shader.
  •     Animated GIF.

The app also allows you to configure WebGL interactive wallpapers, which are supported by the Chromium engine.

Microsoft Edge:

In its Canarian edition, Microsoft is testing a new feature called Web Widgets. As the name suggests, this tool allows you to install supported Chromium Edge WebView widgets on your desktop.

Currently, you can only install the MSN News tool on your desktop so that the widget is scrolled over other applications.

These tools can also work if you close Microsoft Edge while they still can run in the background.

The tool is powered by your Microsoft account and shows business forecasts, headlines, mathematical and financial information.

Microsoft is currently testing the functionality of Web Tools. If your browser is included in the test, you can access these tools from the Microsoft Edge menu on Windows 10.
