How to Install New Skins on Steam
Steam allows you to change the default skin of the client. To change the skin, you first need to go to the website steamskins.org and download the desired skin, then in Steam’s folder create a new folder called skins, then unzip the downloaded file to that folder and finally change the skin in Steam client.
This may seem complicated, but trust us it isn’t, and we’ve made a video showing you how to change your skin on Steam using Windows 10.
- First we will download the skin. Open the browser you’re using (in our case it’s Google Chrome).
