Get a Skin

Follow the steps here to pick out a new skin you like, and put it on your copy of LimeWire.

Step 1: Download the Skin File

The skins pictured below were made by LimeWire developers and users. Pick one out, and right-click its download link. Choose Save Target As... to download a file like SkinName_theme.lwtp.

Step 2: Put the Skin File in the Themes Folder

Find LimeWire's themes folder. On Windows, it will have a path like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\Kevin\Application Data\LimeWire\themes

On a Mac, the path will be like this instead:

/Users/Kevin/Library/Preferences/LimeWire/themes

Put the .lwtp file you downloaded in the themes folder.

Step 3: Switch LimeWire to the Skin

From LimeWire's menu, click View and choose Apply Skins. The menu that pops up will list the skins that LimeWire finds in the themes folder. Click the one you just downloaded, and LimeWire will switch to it. LimeWire may have to restart for the new skin to take effect.
