8 Skin Pack 11

Customization package that gives you the freedom to completely redesign your OS and make it look like Windows 8 with the aid of charm bars, tiles and more
If you like the new look that Windows 8 brings to the table, but are still reticent about upgrading your system, there’s a way for you to only change your computer interface. 8 Skin Pack is a Windows theme that completely transforms the way your OS looks.

8 Skin Pack is a customization package that enables you to choose the elements you want to change about the way Windows works.

Tweaks during the installation process

Despite the nice features this app brings, you should pay attention when installing it instead of just pressing the “Next” button until the end. The software offers to change the homepage for your web browser, the default search engine and install a toolbar.

Changes that you can apply to your system

So, you can swap to the new login and start screen, add new widgets to your desktop, freshen up your boot screen, opt for a new start button and menu, display new wallpapers and change the overall style of your operating system.

Check out the new user interface

The biggest visual change for the new Windows 8 is the user interface. Created with tablet computers in mind, this tile layout enables all users to access various apps and main spots on the computer, such as the hard disks, the games section, Control Panel or the Microsoft store and the desktop.

In addition, you can also view information like the date and time, as well as real-time details about your computer’s performance (processor and memory usage).

Work with charm bars, tiles and other Windows 8 elements

After installing this app your computer should resemble the original Windows 8 and includes specific elements, such as charms bar, tile user interface and all other visual features. It also introduces a "start button" in order to provide the functionality of the launcher in Windows 7.

Bottom line

All in all, 8 Skin Pack is a nice alternative to installing the real Windows 8, modifying your system only on the surface.
