Metro up your Steam with the appropriately-named Metro for Steam skin

I’m quite partial to the Metro aesthetic myself, and I’d never considered — until Cas dropped a link into my inbox — that you could make Steam all Metro-riffic too. Well, you can with the new Metro for Steam skin (the name is sort of a giveaway).

It’s got customisable colour accents, looks pretty ballin’, and is clean and lovely. I’m using it right now! Here’s the website.

He did a good job replicating the style. But since I’m on Win7 I have no use for this lol.

 

Steam skins! How has this not been a thing before now?

Sure you do! It’s a really slick refresh of the UI. Looks great on win7 :).

 

Am I the only one thinking of Metro the game?

I’ve been using this on my surface for quite a while now. It has a few niggles but is better than nothing. Unfortunately its not perfect for touchscreen. A real metro frontend would be nice.

 

Not a fan of Metro in general but that actually looks really nice.

 

Looks alright if you’re into that sort of style I guess, think i’ll just stick with PixelVision’s sleekness though.

 

exe3,

That would be a nice skin. I’m really wanting to know where I can find some nice game themed ones now.

 

Murray Hibble,

Its been thing for a very long time now…

I made a steam skin way back before valve decided to break everything :/

Reason why its not more popular is because there is a big lack of documentation and valve tend to just break everything every update.

 

Steam UI is pretty terrible so this is really nice and will use straight away.

 

Looks great, but the big thing I want is a touch screen enabled steam client. But this does look much nicer will be using it

Could you be any more tryhard hipster?

There isnt anything wrong with the current steam ui.

 

Been using this for quite a while, it is indeed very awesome.

It does break a little with most Steam updates though, text disappearing and so forth – they seem to update the skin pretty quickly though.

Make sure you get the customisation thingy too so you can change the font and accent colour.

 

Whenever I use Steam without it I am displeased with how aged and cumbersome it feels.

 

Does this change the location of menus or anything like that? It sorta just seems like new text and highlight colours.

 

This is decent but you get a lot more customisable options with the constantly updated Air theme. Go hear for the full package
