D'load, Install and Apply Skins in Win. Media Player 12

Skins have long been a staple of media players ever since Winamp 2.x busted onto the scene in 1998 (over a decade ago!). Windows Media Player 7 was the first Microsoft media player software to support skinning and now the floodgates have been opened. Because Windows Media Player 12 is backwards compatible with most skins back to Windows Media Player 9, there are literally hundreds of Windows Media Player 12 compatible skins to choose from and they are quicker and easier to change than your shoes (even sandals). In this tutorial, we'll show you how to apply skins as well as download skins from the Internet.

In the Skin Chooser window, you'll see the list of installed skins on the left
