LimeWire logoLimeWire is the leading P2p sharing application and is one of the most widely used. LimeWire is said to be used more for sharing music and movies. In this post, I’ll tell you how you can install and use new themes in your LimeWire client. For some reason, I don’t like the default theme, so to get rid of this, I found a way through which I can install new themes.

How To Install LimeWire Skins

Assuming, you have already downloaded the theme file (.lwtp file) and is saved somewhere in your PC, below is the location for various Operating Systems where you have to copy/paste the theme file.

In Windows XP, go to

C:Documents and SettingsUSERNAMEApplication Data Limewirethemes

and paste the theme file. USERNAME is your Windows user account name.

In Windows Vista, go to

C:UsersUSERNAMEAppDataRoamingLimeWirethemes

and paste the theme file. USERNAME is your Windows user account name.

In Mac OSX, go to

Macintosh HDUsers:USERNAMELibraryPreferences LimeWireThemes

and paste the theme file. USERNAME is your user account name.

In Mac Classic, go to

System FolderPreferences.limewirethemes

and paste the theme file.

How To Use LimeWire Skins

After you’ve followed all the above steps, you can now use the skin in your LimeWire. If you don’t know where to enable them, follow the steps below:

  • Open LimeWire
  • Go to View
  • Then Apply Skins (choose your new skin from here, first)
  • Now select Refresh Skins (from Apply Skins menu)
  • Done!
