It's easy to give Windows Media Player a new look by applying a skin. Each skin has a distinct appearance, and most skins incorporate basic Player functions, such as the ability to adjust the volume. Some skins offer added functionality, including special audio files, visualizations, and other custom features. The features that a skin provides are determined by its creator. You can select a skin from those provided with the Player, or you can download more skins from the Internet.
To install some skins, you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group.
Click the View menu, and then click Skin Chooser.

Click Apply Skin.
To return to the Player Library from a skin, right-click anywhere on the Player, and then click Switch to Library.
