This skin is for the "Pre-2010" Steam UI Version. This skin is not compatible with the 2010 UI update for Steam. This won't show up in the new Steam's list, as the skin format has been completely overhauled.

The "Pre-2010" UI Version of Steam is no longer available AFAIK. So, this skin is pretty much dead.

A modified, lighter version of :iconrthaut:'s Steam skin, Carbon.

Thanks a bunch for downloading my steam skin "Aluminum".
Also, many thanks to Ryan Thaut for letting me modify his skin "Carbon" to make a lighter version.

1. Go to Program Files (might have x86 on the end if you use x64 versions of Windows)/Steam/skins
2. Drag-N-Drop the "Aluminum" Folder, NOT the contents of it!
2a. Inside this folder should be a bunch of other folders. If there is somehow another Aluminum
3. Go to Steam>Settings>Interface Tab>Skin>Select "Aluminum"
4. Restart Steam as it asks.
5. Enjoy.

Uhm, it's not going to work anymore. Steam updated their UI scheme about 4-6 months ago, and the scheme needs to be completely rebuilt.

Yes, but I just modified a different skin. =rthaut made Carbon for the Steam Client, and this is a version with modified textures.
