Can we have a desktop thread? Anonymous 11882

Well, I figured since some of you came from lainchan a desktop thread wouldn't be a bad idea I guess?
Just post your desktop as it is right now (or in a way you wouldn't mind people seeing it lol).

thanks, I'm kinda autistic when it comes to how my desktop looks, sometimes I waste countless hours looking for good wallpapers because I'm too lazy to make my own.
problem is no wallpaper fits well with this hand-me-down screen my brother gave me

May I ask what kind of computer you have? It seems like you can fit quite a few things on there and I'm in search of a computer that has a lot more storage than what I have now. Also, nice background.

Anonymous 18307

Not the anon you replied to but if you're satisfied performance wise with what you have now then you can just get a bigger hard drive for more storage.

Are you using a laptop or a desktop?

Anonymous 18308

I’m using a laptop. It’s a few years old and doesn’t even have enough storage to update it. I can really only watch anime, listen to music, and use discord on there. And it has enough for pictures and stuff but that’s all on the OneDrive. My dad says he has an external hard drive I could just plug in but would I be able to download games with that?

Anonymous 18309

Sounds like you have a chomebook or something. You should be able to download games but I think there are performance issues when running them off an external drive.
There's also very few games that would run on a laptop like that.
What are you looking to buy? A laptop or a desktop? And for what purposes.

Anonymous 18310

I need a laptop for school so something like that. A gaming laptop would be a viable option but honestly I don’t really think I need all the extra Fanciness that comes with those things like crazy storage and graphics. Just something that will run Steam and the games off of there, and I only play like two games at a time so it’s not like I need something that will hold a huge library of vidya.

Anonymous 18311

depending what games you want to play, it won't be so much about storage space but about the graphics card, which is $$$. some of those steam games are really hard to run, it's not a run one run all type of thing

Anonymous 18315

If you wanna play steam games (anything other than pixel indie type) you'll need a laptop with a dedicated graphics card. The Lenovo Y520 is good price/value laptop. The basic one (1050ti graphics card) with a 2tb drive is like $800 and it should be more than enough for anything you need both gaming and space wise.

Anonymous 18339

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look into it! <3

Anonymous 18485


don't listen to this >>18315 anon.
that laptop is a cringe inducing piece of garbage.
just buy a lenovo yoga 730 15inch. It has the same NVIDIA card and it even doubles as a tablet so u can draw stuff/write some notes. If you don't play newer games you could even buy the cheaper 13 inch model and save like 200$ i think
If you're not in the US though I think the dell inspiron 5000 (or 7000) 13 2 in 1 is cheaper (althought I think one of these models loses it's color over time and ends up looking kinda ugly)

Anonymous 18487

It's BG image from Russian VN "Everlasting Summer"

Anonymous 18488

The one you're suggesting has a worse GPU (1050 not 1050 ti), a quarter of the storage space of the Y520 (albeit the SSD on the yoga 730 is much faster there's an option to go for an SSD on the Y520 too if that's what you want), it has a worse cooling system AND is more expensive by @ 200$. While it has a better screen (4k vs 1080p) you're not going to be able to run any semi modern game with that resolution anyways so it's pointless. She mentioned nothing about wanting to draw on it which is the only reason why you'd wanna pick the yoga 730 over the y520.

Hello I tried to make my computer a bit oldschool, does anyone have any ideas what I could put or any cute winamp skins? It's windows 10 but I turned on the high contrast settings which lets you change button, text and background color like in older windows. Web browsers take on the colors too.
I know it's a bit ugly that's why I posted here, where there are so many people with great taste.

Anonymous 53444

Thank you so much, I don't know much about customization but I recommend when you do switch to windows to get Rainmeter, which has a lot of widgets, like the clock I have on the bottom and the two characters (which are animated - you could even make an entire animated wallpaper too).
But I have to say although I like that all my windows are purple now, it's not optimized to work this way, some websites look a bit weird and some buttons are pure black anyway

Recently switched back from Linux so it's nothing impressive yet.

Oh it looks nice, like the /x/ board.

I was looking up how to rice windows and I saw that people even made custom start pages for browsers so I tried to make one too but I got carried away a little but anyway if you want to get a custom browser page there are some pretty templates here https://startpages.github.io/

I finished my desktop and browser homepage for now. It's just the right sort of tacky I think. I don't need a super stylish desktop, I just want something that will fill me with happiness like those old myspace sites.

Thanks I like your desktop too. It is pretty aesthetic. I think something like white would go better with the dark pink instead of the bright color on New Page though. Have you tried using firefox with userChrome.css to style it? I don't use it myself but I saw some cool designs made with it.

I'm using Linux with KDE Plasma desktop.

based anon

Anonymous 53565

Thanks, I checked out some user.Chrome.css designs and they really look cool! I use microsoft edge, but I'm sure I can also do something like that. On my new tab page a white color would definitely look better but I turned on high contrast mode which lets you choose window colors and then overrides every window color so I can't change it. It looks pretty bad on some sites tbh(for example this site) would not recommend to anyone looking for a perfect stylish look.
That rainbow matrix is so cool!! It looks like a rain of candy.

If you use windows and rainmeter I can share them with you if you want to use them too. They are animated. I can also make more; I have a jojo mugen game which I can get sprites from, which has characters from other parts too so I'm not limited to part 3 characters. So if you want any jojo character on your desktop tell me and I can make it for you.

I can, I'll try to make it today evening or tomorrow I don't have time right now; rainmeter is very easy to use, just download it if you haven't already and then I will send you a file which you just click on and it installs itself. Jonathan looks like pic related though, the sprite isn't as pretty as in the heritage for the future game because it was made by someone unrelated.

I like minimalism.

Anonymous 121938

Too bad, I'm gonna explain anyways.

I've installed Windows 7 recently on a new SSD because I refuse to use Win10 and for other reasons. But I haven't really felt like customizing it a lot, so I have left a lot of stuff intact. I deleted some taskbar icons that I didn't need though. I should probably delete the shortcuts related to graphics card settings next, along with with the browser shortcuts (I kept them there out of habit).
Also, I don't save wallpaper images as I don't want a generic one, and most of the ones related to my interests are random upscaled or compressed or cropped (fan)art, and I hate looking at beautiful digital art if it's not in its original resolution and quality. Making a wallpaper would be ideal but I haven't had the time or inspiration yet. So I decided to keep the default Windows 7 wallpaper because it looks clean and simple but it's also kinda pretty. I would be happy with a plain blue or black background, though. So in the end it's either a plain color/default and simple wallpaper, or a wallpaper that feels more personal but has to be perfect, since I'm so picky in that regard.
I draw and make VNs (allegedly) so I have Clip Studio and Ren'Py shortcuts.
I have downloaded a bunch of VNs, but most of them are in my old hard drive and haven't moved them yet, so I only have one game in that VN folder. The PDF reader is for epubs, otherwise I would've pirated Adobe Acrobat instead.
And lastly, I've started making subtitles (my first project is just translating pre-existing subs), so I got Aegisub for the subs, and OmegaT to speed up the translation process with a translation memory (which I should've learned how to use in uni). Actually I was going to make a super-autistic post about why I'm doing this in the vent thread but I felt better by the time I finished writing it.

And I like to use the 24-hour format for time and year-month-day format for date.

hy can't we change fonts (and its color), change the trashcan's icon or pick light colors for the navibar? The navibar one specially irritates me, couldn't they make it so if we pick a light color, the font turns black instead of white so it's readable?

This is so cute, anon!

I don't really use windows anymore but I was obsessed with customising everything when I did

>Why can't we change fonts

I recall an option to change the font (Windows 7) but it seems that option was dropped in Windows 10
Personally, I'd go back to default because I couldn't get used to it but if it's something you're seeking out to do you can just search "windows 10 change font"
Here's a link: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-default-system-font-windows-10

>change the trashcan's icon

You can definitely change the recycling bin icon, here's a link but you can also just search "windows 10 recycle bin icon"
Link: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-change-recycle-bin-icon

>pick light colors for the navibar

I highly recommend installing "Open-Shell-Menu". It makes your start menu just like the one in Windows 7 (the start menu in Windows 10 feels like a total downgrade tbh) as well as letting you customise the "navibar"
I remember being able to pick any colour (even light colours) for the taskbar but I'm not 100% sure since it's been a while since I've last used it and would mainly choose the transparent look
Link: https://open-shell.github.io/Open-Shell-Menu

Your desktop looks so clean! The Winamp is so cute, I would love to download it because I have seen some skins I love, but I feel it will just me more bloatware for my poor laptop.
Also you're a lifesaver! Somehow I didn't think of changing the icon on the system settings… Since "change icon" doesn't appear on the trashcan, so I created a shortcut and changed its icon, but then I couldnt move the original trashcan inside a folder or something… Now finally my trash has been yassified.
(Also changed firefox because it wasn't pink enough)

Anonymous 148535

Thank you, anon!
Sadly I rarely use this theme since I’m too lazy to change it from my dark theme lol

Totally get the concern about bloat, so maybe look into Audacious?
It’s what I’m using on my laptop and it’s available on windows as well
It’s lightweight and can run winamp skins (also open source if you care about that)
Link: https://audacious-media-player.org/download

I am loving the new icon for the recycling bin, so glad it worked out for you!

Also that Firefox icon is such an improvement, ties everything together better
