Desktops Of July Answered

Picture of

Right, This month it is my turn to host the monthly desktop thread started by gmjhowe. My my July has come round so fast and so much has happened in this time.



What are you all waiting for, Get printscreening and show off your desktop. Don't be shy!

To take a picture of your desktop on a windows machine use the printscreen key on your keyboard, Open up paint, Edit, Paste and then save this as a png. then upload this onto Instructables.

To take a screenshot on a mac use the apple key, Shift and 3. This will save the picture to your desktop then you can upload it to Instructables.

To take a screenshot in Linux go to Applications>Accessories>Take screenshot. If this doesn't work blame Lithium Rain ;-)



Right for mine on my EeePC this month I'm using the Striped VS Visual Style from lassekongo83.

The wallpaper I'm using was sent to me from a user on Assembler Forums so I'll upload that below, It is of vomiting fruit, I love really random wallpapers like that. It matches my random personalty.

The icon set is Dark Theme for IconTweaker which is a free program to change your icons.

What are you all waiting for, Get them on here and if you haven't changed it from last month change it now!



Update: Nice desktops everyone, Keep 'em coming!

Thanks! it's going great for sooo many reasons: security, flexibility, customizablility, ease of repair... (I haven't run XP on my primary machine for more than a year now, I switched a few months ago from vista when I finally figured out how to dualboot and haven't looked back). :D I've learned a whole lot and it's just beginning...I wish I had stuck with it when I first tried it years ago.

Golly! Very clever set of screens and a great use of wallpapers.

I'm thinking of getting a usb screen just for watching iplayer and 4od in bed rather than having to have the whole laptop on a tray on me. Or just a longer vga cable to reach my computer monitor, But that wouldn't be very fun! =D

Thanks! We were talking about dinosaurs in the IRC chatroom, and I had a moment of creativity. Yeah, I did think about running a USB cable across my room to my bed. You can get adapters for running USB of ethernet cable, which allows you to use longer cables, and gives better quality etc. I tend to use my iPod Touch for watching iplayer, not really tried 4OD yet..
