The icons are big and bright on this desktop, but it doesn’t make this desktop by Flickr user Aswath any less interesting. It’s a nice mix of fun and functional, perfect for a laptop display. Here’s how he set it up.
We’re running low on submissions to our Desktop Showcase, so if you want your desktop featured here, send it in! All you have to do is post a screenshot to your Kinja blog (the one that came with your commenter account), and include links to the wallpaper, widgets, skins, and tools you used to customize it.
If you want your desktop to look like the one above, here’s what you’ll need:
All in all, we like this one because it’s both clean and functional. Fences lets you show icons when you need to see them, and get rid of them when you don’t and just need to work—or use the shortcuts and tools on your desktop. Clutter when you need it, gone when you don’t. If you like what you see here but run into problems setting it up, head over to Aswath’s flickr page to ask how he customized some of the utilities to look and work just so. Let him know we sent you!
