Users also pick Rainmeter skins based on the information that they show. And how the information is displayed, and how good they make your desktop look as well. Rainmeter skins aren’t exactly built for multiple monitors as well. You guys can also position a skin on any monitor that you also want, however, if you guys want to show Rainmeter skins on multiple monitors. That you just have to use a little workaround. It’s nothing more complicated than making a copy of a folder as well. Just read this article to know all about How to Display Rainmeter Multiple Monitors in Windows. Let’s show!
How to Display Rainmeter Multiple Monitors in Windows
First of all, pick out the Rainmeter skins that you guys want to use on multiple monitors. If you have a lot of different skins in use. Just find the names of the ones you guys want to use on all your monitors.
In File Explorer, just head to the following location.
Here, you can create a copy of the of all the skin folders that you want to use on multiple desktops. If you guys want, you can rename it to something else that will also indicate that it is a copy of a different skin as well. It also makes no difference on the UI of your system as well.
Quit and restart Rainmeter
After you guys restart Rainmeter, right-tap on it and head to Skins. You guys will see that in addition to all the skins you’ve installed, then there’s also the copy that you created. Turn on the skin and you will basically have two instances of it running. You can also position the different elements of the skin on multiple monitors as well.
You can easily replicate this workaround for any number of monitors that you are using. The only limitation is the number of monitors you guys can connect to a system. However, the skins themselves can be replicated over and over.
If you guys need different variations of the same skin, for whatever reason. Then you can also use this same trick to get them. Of course, the skin itself must have variations for you in order to enable. This trick will only duplicate the skin as it is. It won’t modify anything along with respect to how it looks.
If you guys have manually modified a skin, and then copied its folder, the modifications will be copied since the INI file is the same. If you made changes to the INI file of skin after you guys make a copy of it. Then the changes will not carry and you guys will have to make them again in the INI file of the copied skin as well.
There will of course be a performance tax from all of this. If your system doesn’t really have the resources to support running multiple skins. Then its performance will drag. Each and every copy of a skin you make is akin to running yet another skin on your system as well.
