Metro skin for Steam has this dark, sleek look that’s quite irresistible. Largely decorated in grey and black and with a tweak in its general overlay, the skin brings something more to the table, especially for the modern gamer. While Steam provides a great gaming platform on a PC or laptop, it is somewhat ugly, clunky and a bit annoying, more particularly on high DPI displays.
Metro hence seeks to give the default Steam interface a new lease of life in nearly all facets. And it does it so perfectly, without really going in for a complete overhaul. Whether you are a fussy individual or someone who takes keen interest in simplicity, you’ll find respite in this well balanced skin.
Let’s take a look at some of the most important aspects you may need to know about this Steam skin:
Metro Steam for skin client is dark-themed and features among skins that have gained massive acclamation in the Steam community. Its design, right from the header to menu layouts all through to the footer, is just solid. Accessing such pages as Store, Library and other important functions to the right of the header is hassle-free as text and icons come in light colors which lie against a dark background.
The skin’s general design is compact but access to the download page, friend list and other sections on the taskbar is still quick and seamless. The mix of text colors used on the section headings and links is also vibrant, and considering the somewhat tinted background, legibility is no issue for the user.
With the Metro skin, you can customize the Steam (to a certain degree) via a web app or browser-based utility. To perform the customization, all you need to do is choose your desired accent color, font and decal then drop the file generated into the Metro folder and you’ll enjoy the personalized look you so wish for. It just never gets more fun than this.
Installing Metro is just as easy as you would to do for other Steam skins. The in-game features, chat panel and other Steam parts maintain close similarity to the Windows UI, making users feel right at home when performing installation. Metro skin uses custom, clean buttons that pair well with the vibrant text to make maneuverability around the Steam quite a breeze.
Metro is highly compatible with all Steam versions, including the latest one. Hence you are assured of enjoying a bug-free and comfortable interface that sets the stage for fun game play and download.
