Omnimo – The program simply allows you to place modules and items on your desktop, it doesn’t change the way you use Windows. The startmenu, the taskbar, and even the desktop icons (optional) are still there and integrate really well. Almost like Sidebar Gadgets, you can toggle the modules on & off. It integrates brilliantly into Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 and even 10!
Turn your desktop into an elegant news center
To be able to set it up, you must have Rainmeter installed. During setup, you can opt for the Metric or Imperial system, along with dark or light interface mode. Then, you can pick a preferred theme and desktop resolution.
Omnimo mimics the Metro look, showing large flat buttons over a panel. You can check out the latest headlines, click links to read full articles, run Google searches, as well as quickly launch favorite apps.
Set up additional panels and addons
The Omnimo overlay is accompanied by a menu, which gets opened by clicking the hamburger button on the upper-right corner of the screen. From this area, you can temporarily hide the tool instead of exiting, set up additional panels, or install more addons.
As far as the style of the theme is concerned, it’s possible to pick different colors, enable or disable Aero Glass effect, and adjust the opacity level of the overlay. In advanced mode, you can also change the font and sidebar colors.
Create and save different layouts
Different layouts can be arranged and saved to easily toggle them. Moreover, you can set a hotkey for toggling Omnimo, switch to another interface language, set a weather location, or ask the utility to automatically run on system startup and to hide the desktop icons on launch.
Taking into account its wide range of customization features as well as general ease of use, we think that Omnimo is capable of grabbing the attention of many users interested in creating a stylish news center on their desktops.
