I really like how you made it look Windows-ish!
FantaWauWau Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2018
Very nice skin. Clean and way better looking than the original.

I don't know if that just appeared due to an update but I have like some buggy view in Settings/Account Settings and I can't find the right settings to change it myself.

Love the skin but there's a tiny issue with buttons being in the wrong place in the install game window for example. Here's a screenshot for clarity:

Is there is place where i can download the older versions of the metro for steam skin?
I like the old versions better, the start game button being centred and the settings tab being on the right instead of the left

When I open the Interface tab in Steam settings (after downloading, extracting, placing files in skins folder, then restarting Steam 5 times) the choice for Metro for Steam does not show up. It only lists <default skin>. Please help.
KZOHH Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2016
I do all what was in readme. I`m going to steam settings, and in field "Skins" i have only "default skin". Tryied to restart steam - it didn`t help me.

Really nice and clean look! Way more better, than the default theme +fav 
Is it possible to install this theme on Mac OS X (El Capitan)??

Hey there, I posted this already on twitter but figure I'd post it here:

The "in-game" under friends list is kind of useless in my opinion since if your friends portrait is green you know they are already in a game.

Also the SettingsApp crashes whenever you try and change something with it. I end up with a .net exception, so that needs to be updated.

I think the search bar on top of the friends list and games library is way too big.

Please let me know if you plan on making any changes that were more like 3.9.1, thanks.

Freakin' sexy.

Top notch work. Why doesn't Valve promote skins, I gotta wonder?
portugapt Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2016
I believe Valve should add this skin and a few other big skins as part of official download. I cannot use steam without this skin m8... Great work, and good luck for future project skins, and Metro updated if any soon. :)
AlexCrusade Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2016  Student Interface Designer
Cool skin. I use it for a long time.
Leonick Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2016
Any way to get icons in the list in detailed library view? Could have sworn they used to be there but they're gone now (if they were ever there, though I swear they were)...
ReonPG Featured By Owner Edited Mar 18, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I didn't find this question so Imma ask.. Is it possible to put a option where I can have "Add Game" and "Friends List" the way it is in the default skin?
It makes sense since some of us are so used to the default skin..
Thanks for your time!

Not bad, but I would like to see download graphs make a comeback.

I like how my Steam Overlay uses more than the bottom two rows of pixels now!  Was it that hard, Valve?
pzztns Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
pretty good, i love it :funnydance: 
Scrush2590 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2016
would love to see an official white/light version of this skin. its the best steam skin out there and a white version would be awesome.

i found a modified light theme but an official version could be better
robotman715 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sadly downloads look less cool (no graph). Other than that, it looks awesome.
