This tip will show you how you can customise Windows Media Player to a look that better suits you. There is something for all tastes, from players of Half Life to fans of Elvis Presley, and Harry Potter.
Like a lot of programs like the Firefox and Opera web browsers, Windows Media player can be customised with the help of skins. You simply need to follow this guide to integrate the module into the program.
In the left hand menu of the main window, click on the “Select appearance” tab.
DFrom here it is possible to chose one of the three appearances offered by default (compact, Enterprise or Retro). If these don’t suit your tastes; then it is possible to install others. To do this, click on the “Other appearances” button.
Once you are on the download site, you simply need to find the theme that best suits you and download it. The dialogue box offers you to then open this with Windows Media Player. Accept and click on OK.
Once the theme has been downloaded, it is ready for use. You simple need to apply it.
Here are some examples of the Xbox and Elvis themes.
