Win7-Style Tray for Rainmeter by ainq Win7-Style Tray for Rainmeter by ainq
The default Rainmeter tray icon looks really out of place in the Windows 7 system tray,
so I decided to make this one based on the style of Windows 7 system tray icons.
Another recommended icon replacement: [link]

Download includes ICO.

If you like it or download it, please :+fav:.

wtf? 30 :+fav:s in 1 day?

To change the Rainmeter icon, place the Rainmeter.ico file into Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\Icon
and create the "Icon" folder is necessary.

Then add this to Rainmeter.ini (right-click tray icon -> Edit Settings):


[TrayMeasure]
Measure=CALC
TrayMeter=BITMAP
TrayBitmap=Icon\Rainmeter.ico


After that, restart Rainmeter and you should see the changes.

The icon is really low resolution compared to the others in my tray. I removed it. If you have any fix for this let me know.

This is only for 72DPI displays. Scale up for higher-DPI displays.

I am just wondering how did you change the upward triangle icon for the system tray? It is better than the original icon of Windows 7.

I was just looking at the log and it says there is a warning. Says it cannot find the bitmap, then displays the directory, the directory is the exactly the same and the icon is in the folder so I don't understand why it cannot find it.

I love this icon and I applied it in the skin settings awhile back, worked great but I just noticed it's changed back to the original Rainmeter icon. I opened edit settings and the ini code you provided was gone, so I re-entered it clicked refresh all and it didn't change, cannot figure out why. I also restarted Rainmeter, the ini is still there but no icon change. BTW I am using Windows 8, not sure if that could be causing the problem but like I said, it worked before.

There might be a change in the Rainmeter codebase, I can reproduce this with the latest beta. I'll look into it, and contact the Rainmeter devs.

Any chance of you making a steam icon like this. Would complete my taskbar since I'm using this and the eject media icon as well. <3
