Desktop Cube (Windows Only)





Introduction: Desktop Cube (Windows Only)

Have you ever wanted to make your desktop have a little something special? Have more than one desktop? Or just show off your awesomeful desktop to your friends. Well, you're in luck!

This instructable will make you have a desktop cube, it is something like Linux's multi-desktop program.

Your specs should look a little something like this. Yes they are a little demanding, but you could live with 1 Ghz processor.

System requirements :

  • Microsoft Windows XP" or Windows Vista"
  • 1.4 Ghz processor
  • 512 MB of RAM (1 GB recommended)
  • DirectX 9.0c
  • 3D accelerated video adapter with at least 64MB of video memory

Step 1: Getting Yod'm 3D

First of all, Yod'm 3D isn't free anymore. If you want to buy the program then go ahead. If you don't want to buy the program, i have uploaded a slightly older version as a zip file. The file is 9.2 MB so it will take a while for it to download. Here it is...

1. download the file
2. extract to somewhere you can find it - (rightclick -> extract)

Step 2: Play Around With It!

You will notice a new icon in the icon tray, usually in the bottom right corner. Right click that and hit options. Then it's really up to you. Do what you want to Yod'm 3D.

Step 3: Screen Shots

Here are some screen shots that i have taken of the cube.

    I love this instructable!

    if you have an error with the hot key for me i just changed it to only shift and alt but it works great im on win 7 it would be better if you could go up or down not just left or right

    Such technology

    convert minds into intelligent

    and the creation of thoughts

    become outside of the box


    The errors you are getting are caused by the executable file looking at the wrong file paths for it's assets. The creator of this tutorial zipped HIS directory so the paths to the background files and wallpaper reflect the directory structure on his machine. To fix this, right-click "Yodm3D.ini" and open it with notepad. Find the following lines:

    WallpaperDesktop1=C:\Users\aaron\Desktop\Yod'm 3D\desktopwallpaper1.bmp
    WallpaperDesktop2=C:\Users\aaron\Desktop\Yod'm 3D\desktopwallpaper2.bmp
    WallpaperDesktop3=C:\Users\aaron\Desktop\Yod'm 3D\desktopwallpaper3.bmp
    Background=C:\Users\aaron\Desktop\Yod'm 3D\widebackground.jpg

    Note: These reflect the directory structure on my machine, you will need to change it to your own. To do this, simply change each line to the full path of where you extracted the .zip file to. So if you unzipped it to the desktop, your path to the image files would be something like "C:\users\SomeUser\Desktop\Yod'm 3d".

    Hope this helps.

     it says every time i try to launch it it says registerhotkey failed go to option and change do i do this

    If you're running it on windows 7, right click the exe and run as administrator.
