Important: all files must be decompressed in the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\maxthon\Bin\ or C:\Program Files\maxthon\Bin\

and back up the original files before, in case you want to go back to default skin ! :wink:

When will we see Mx 5 skins again.  They seem to have disappeared.  The skins for 5.01 don't work with 5.02

skins are down to the members who post them - mainly Wilser and he has decided to withdraw support and the download links 

5.01 skins do work on 5.02 - they have changed the 0.dat and 1.dat name to UIHuge and UIMain.dat - caught me out  :arf: but its as simple as renaming the files

It is as simple as renaming the files, but I think you flipped the names:  0.dat > UIMain.dat and 1.dat > UIHuge/dat.

But be aware that things are chabging so things may not continue to work in later versions.  [@tony I know you know this, but all don't.]

Thanks Tony.  

But you need to know that those skins aren't full compatible with new mx builds...

Of course, you can rename those 0/1 files to UIxxx.dat, but after that you can't select anymore your folders for saving notes/ favs.

Check screenshot, please.

Why  do I need, and why don't I have permission to see some posts?

Use the "t-shirt" button next to the minimise/maximise/close buttons at the top right.
