Hi,

I've got the new MSN Messenger with the new and shiny skin. Um, is there ANY way to change the skin? Or rather, is there any way to change its skin back to the "old" Windows Messenger's?

Thanks.

What? There isn't such option... You might have confused with another program.

Anyway, I've got the newest MSN Messenger version, and all I wanna do is switch to the Windows Messenger's skin. Is that possible? Is there such skin? And if not, is there any lightweight skin I can get for the newest MSN Messenger version?

Thanks again.

Edit: It's CBN2xx, it's my second account, don't ask why please.

Try www.mess.be but do so at your own risk. They have skins for MSN 7. Look to the left at the bottom. These downloads seem to be safe but the site also links to Smiley Central which is definitely NOT safe.

I know, but they don't have the old skin for MSN Messenger 7 (newest version), I don't think they have it at all. I already knew about this site, thanks anyway. Well, I used their "Mess Patch", it helped tweaking the program a bit, now it works faster, but it'd probably work faster if I hadn't used that smooth shiny skin... Aw, well, never mind, I took off enough buttons and options, I think that would do.

If you know how to get the old (as in, Windows Messenger's) skin for MSN Messenger 7, please reply here or PM me.

Thanks anyway.
