Place it in the Winamp\Skins folder and it should be available in Winamp's skins list.

When you download a skin, Winamp should automatically install it. Is that not happening? If so, what Windows version are you using?

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

1. Create two simple text files with Notepad (or your favorite text editor), save one as Classic.wsz and the other as Modern.wal. The content and name of the files is unimportant, however keep the .wsz and .wal extension.

2. One at a time, for each of the two newly created files, right click on and select 'Open With' > select 'Choose Default Program…' > click the 'Browse' button

3. Navigate to the Winamp.exe location highlight/select it and click 'Open'

4. Checkmark 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of program' > click 'OK' button.

5. When Winamp asks "Are you sure you want to install this Winamp skin?" select no. The purpose here is to associate the proper skin files with Winamp and you are not actually trying to install the files you created.

You can now delete the Classic.wsz and Modern.wal file.
