I Love this skin!  Thanks for all your hard work :)

I downloaded the setting program, and that's cool too, but, how can I set my friends list to keep my avatar but not show the friends search box?  that's one way of setting it that the settings program doesn't cover.

Thanks!

I love the skin, but it REALLY needs an update! I sadly had to uninstall it because I kept accidentally hitting Steams new 'big picture mode' button that they put in the upper left corner by default =(

The text color for when you're typing a message is the same as the input box, so you are basically typing blindly. Also, when you right click on icons and games, the box is very narrow and only shows two characters.

EDIT: Nevermind, that was a result of my tweaking. I was trying to get it to use Times New Roman instead. You're all good!

I can't get this to work-any suggestions? I exported it into the skins folder but it doesn't show up in my settings?

Sorry for the delay!

If what the other guys have mentioned still hasn't helped, be sure to check the folder you've put in skins.  Be sure there isn't a duplicated Metro folder within. Does it contain resources, graphics, etc.? If it doesn't this could be the reason it's not showing up.

Did you restart Steam after extracting the skin ?
Steam is refreshing skin options on startup, so you need to restart it to make the skin popup in the list.

Hm. Are you using OS X or Windows?
If its Windows, then its easy enough. Just google it and they will direct you to a directory.
If it is OS X, then its harder. The skins directory is literally inside the application itself. I mean going into the applications folder and opening up the steam icon.

Another thing. Don't forget to actually select the skin!

Your skin doesn't let me open new windows with middle mouse button, it just stays minimized and no way to maximize it. Otherwise it's a very nice skin but I can't use it this way.

That's an ongoing issue for a small subset of users since the skin's release. I'm not sure what it is causing it as I've never experienced it myself. Is this an older Steam installation?

The spacing of the "_" and the "X" on the popup windows, upper right corner, such as when you start downloading a game. I cant actually click the X to close the window. Not that it matters too much. Just a really small detail. Otherwise this skin is absolutely amazing, been using it for about a year or so.

Theres a link to an image of what I'm talking about. Just in case I wasn't clear in my description. Thanks!

A handful of windows without layout files are like this. The design is less than ideal (and I plan on revisiting them at some point), but you should still be able to click them if you find the sweet spot.

I would like to change the others colors, like both the backgrounds color and things like that, how can i do it ?

The accent color (currently orange) can be changed manually or via the settings app found at metroforsteam.com.

You'd have to have a tiny bit of Steam skinning and overall knowledge of RGBA if you decided to do it manually. Open up colors.styles, find ClientBG and Header_Dark and replace them with the RGBA values of your choosing, then restart Steam.

Why my "Store", "Community" and my Profile's page are normal ? Is this a bug or idk ?

It's not bug. Store, Community and Profile are web parts of Steam. The only one who can change appearance of them is Valve.

:iconhyokkudaryosan:
You can actually change the web pages as well, but that will require some more CSS work and external links from dropbox.com for example to host the sprite images to be loaded. Everything will be found in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\resource\layout" and "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\resource\styles".

Hi,

This is by far the best skin :) Just updated to the latest version of Steam and metro and have noticed the new DLC section is a bit broken (I'm Guessing it is that from what I can see)
