Windows Media Player 12 default skin is elegant and it suits Windows 7 well. However from time to time you may want to have a new refreshing skin for it. There is a 3rd party skin that allows you to change the default skin to something new.
Some skins change the appearance whilst some is capable of adding new features. It is very easy to install – just a couple of clicks and you should be done. All skins reside in Windows official page and you can head over there.
Most of the skins are meant for Windows Media player 11 but they are all fully compatible with the latest Windows Media player 12. Please note though, very few of them are originally built prior to Windows 7 time so it may not have the same appearance when used in Windows 7.
