Metro Skin

Steam users looking to spice up the default Steam interface and change out the default Steam skin but want to see features of their Windows PC interface entwined within their Steam client and in-game will love the Windows 8 Metro Steam Skin developed by BoneyardBrew. The skin is easy to install, just like other Steam skins and presents the Steam client, it’s in-game features and the chat as well as other parts of Steam similar to the Windows user interface, making Steam users who install the skin feel more at home. The skin comes with a custom, clean buttons which look very professional and a simple color scheme that is basic but attractive. Also, Metro Skin for Steam makes the Steam chat features look appealing with a custom overlay and color accent which suits the other parts of the Steam client. The Metro Skin’s great for a homely feel.
