Manually Installing the Rainmeter Skins: 

Before the launch of the Rainmeter 1.3 version, most of the available skins were had to be first unzipped and then moved to the Skins folder. Each and every version of Rainmeter comes with 100% backward-compatible due to which, older skins will still work smoothly. Below mentioned is the procedure for installing them:-

To begin with, if a skin comes in a ZIP, 7Z or a RAR file, then there is a need for a software to extract them. 7-Zip is immensely popular and recommended software as it handles almost every archive type available. When finished with the installation process, right-click on the archive to extract it.
It may include a readme.txt file with more guidance and instructions. If not, just look for the same folder named as skin because it might be found inside another folder named as "Skins". Paste the folder into the Rainmeter "Skins" folder.

In the final step, right-click the windows of Rainmeter notifications area icon appeared and select the button named Refresh all. Now you can see the new Skins available to load from the context menu and manage windows.

While performing a Rainmeter installation, the Skin Installer program is associated with the .rmskin extension and with just an easy double-clicking it will get installed in the Rainmeter.



This dialog will list each and every essential component that will be going to install. That may include:-
  • Skins: Not more but at least one Skin will definitely be comprised and installed in the Rainmeter/ Skins folder. The author may indicate that one or more Skins will be automatically added when the process of installation will be finished.
  • Plugins: The appropriate 32 bit/ 64-bit architecture plugin version .dll files will be automatically installed into the Rainmeter/Skins folder if the author has installed the custom Plugins to the package safely.
  • Addons: Add-ons will be installed by themselves in the Rainmeter/Skins if the author has securely added addon executable files along with the package.

The world is moving at a great pace and everyone seems busy in keeping up with that pace. We’ve all got so much to do but we usually get carried away in different daily errands and find no time to socialize or spend time with our friends. But that’s part of our life and hard to run away from. This century we live in has its perks and demerits to settle with and the best thing one could do is adjust to it no matter what. It's like having everything and still having nothing. 



We got tons of friends on Facebook but we do not have the time to communicate. We have thousands of thoughts and emotions in our heads but we fail to express them. However, there always exists a solution for every problem and in this case; there exists an app that can fulfill your daily dose of entertainment through socializing. 

What if I told that there exists an app that lets you use multiple social media apps within a single vault app? Exactly! Such thing is now possible. This app goes by the name ‘Social Media Vault’ that has the ability to provide with up to 50+ socializing apps including the topmost apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many more. Imaging using so many different types of apps through a single app’s interface? Wouldn’t that be a sight, we’re sure it would be! Such option was considered to be rare but not anymore as the modern day has its own perks as now everything is being altered as per the needs of the masses.

The best thing about this app is that you are not bound to install any of the social media apps on your device. All you need to no do is install one app (which is social media vault itself) and start using all your favorite apps with complete peace of mind. But that’s not all! Social Media Vault on google playstore also allows you to use its feature by the name ‘Hide App Icon’. In this feature, you may continue using this app without fearing that anyone may find its icon. There goes another threat which used to haunt us in the past. Another important feature of this app is called ‘Panic Switch. In everyday life, we face multiple moments when you are surfing social media websites and suddenly someone arrives and may or may not peak into your surfing activity. But such threat is also eliminated from the existence of this feature. All you need to do is shaking, flick or place your palm on the screen to instantly switch to another app (in case if someone arrives at a bit unsuitable time). 

To give you a better understanding, please take a look at some of the apps social media vault lets you use:

Apps like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Reddit, Tumblr, Gmail, Outlook Mail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, 9Gag, Buzz Feed, imgur, MySpace, SoundCloud, Digg, Path, Dailymotion, Netflix and many more.
