Metro is no doubt one of the most used skins in the Steam community. And its popularity can be attributed to two things: simplicity and customization. If you are looking for a skin that can upgrade the default Steam interface into something livelier and functional, then Metro could just be an ideal choice.
Metro is inherently a dark skin that features a perfect mix of grey and blue colors right from the header to the background all through to the footer. The skin does away with a lot of clutter that makes the default Steam interface a little bloated, allowing such things as games list, chat panel, section links and other in-game features to be more functional and presentable.
Metro also proffers a number of customization tools that can allow you to tweak, quite effortlessly, such things as font styles, layout, menu positioning and more. The overall design of the skin is professional and it seamlessly merges with the skin’s dark color scheme to create something that’s unique and attractive.
All Steam text and icons are presented in bold white colors and considering the contrasting dark background hues, legibility is elevated to almost 100 percent. The layout of the Steam client isn’t stuffy, something that makes readability and the process of moving around quite easy.
Installation or setup of the Metro skin is just as simple as in other Steam skins. Switching from one Steam utility to the next is also a breeze, thanks to the skin’s smooth layout. And what’s more, Metro is fully compatible with the latest Steam UI, which makes a cool skin to consider for the Steam upgrade.
