An easy way to brighten up your Steam client with a splash of fresh, lively colours is by installing the Air Skin for Steam, which brings a glowing, bubbly blue texture to the user interface of the Steam client, adds a custom friends list, button overlay and in-game notification bar that are simply beautiful when it comes to visuals and graphics. The Air developer, Elundris, has made a wonderful job when it comes to designing and creating this Steam skin for users on Steam to use. Dazzling and vibrant, this Steam skin brings beauty in to the world of Steam, which is excellent when players would like something to flare up their simple default Steam client, or any other pre-installed skin that they use. The colour scheme that coats the selection of buttons and layers within the Steam client works perfectly, with a mixture of white and light blue.

  1. Hey there. I can tell you how to change colors or toggle between dark and light.

    1. You need to go to the Air Skin’s folder,
    2. Open ‘config.ini’,
    3. There are 2 ‘include’ lines at the bottom that shows you include dark or include light, you have to delete two slashes of line you want to and add two slashes of you don’t want to. I mean if you want light skin, you have to add two slashes to start of include dark line and delete two slashes of include light line. You can do the same for colors,
    4. Restart Steam.

    (If I sucked up of English, sorry about that, I’m still learning.)

  2. It can exist a dark blue version please X) ? like black and black blue ? or other colour like black!? and dude nice hud

  3. Hey I have my mobile authenticator turned on. Everytime I want to login, the login section remains the same. There was no option for me to enter my codes. How can I fix this?

  4. this seriously needs an update to keep this skin alive. this is easily my fave skin by a long shot but the Metro skin is outdoing it by miles can we expect an update for 2017?

    • Howdy friend, i’m not associated with the dev but it looks like updates are still maintained on the website at . I understand if you don’t trust the link, but you will also find the same link on this page in the Download Links section and also if you google Air for Steam skin.

      Good Luck.

  5. If you have family view enabled you’ll need to look for a circular lock/unlock icon in the upper right corner of the client. It is designed to be unobtrusive and can easily be overlooked on first use making it difficult to continue using Steam as desired.

  6. On the news pop-up window that opens often when you start steam, it doesn’t show the number of news that are currently there.

  7. Love this skin, and have been doing a bit of customizing, and love how my customized version is looking, except for one thing, the download bars that indicate your download speed are too light with how I have it set up, and I can’t figure out how to make them darker. Anyone know how to do this?


    If anyone wants my version I’d be happy to share it.
