Skin file location

Postby bubsy54 » Thu Mar 05, 2015 11:11 am

I downloaded a skin from this website, and it came as an mmip file. I opened the file and it installed fine and it works within MM

I want to edit the skin because the font size of the popup notification is way too big. My problem is that I cannot find where the skin is on my system. It is not located in the skin folder for MM. What I had done was download the skin, I opened up the file from within my downloads folder, installed the skin. I thought that the skin would be downloaded to a specific folder in the MM directory but i guess that is not the case

i tried searching the name of the skin in windows search, but all i see is the original installation file, mmip. i assume the skin file must be extracted as a different name. i uninstalled the skin, placed the mmip in the skins folder, installed it again, and still cannot find the skin file.

can anyone help me in finding where the skin is downloaded by default?

thanks

Installed skins should be in the Skins folder. Could it have a different name then expected?

The only files I see in my skin folder are:
commandbar.bmp
Default.mskn
InfoPopUp.ong
list.bmp
Metro M.msz
playing.bmp
Pulse.msz
tree.bmp
Vitreous.msz


In MM, I can see the skins for Metro M, Pulse,VItreous, G-Monkey_PS,and Helium gDark. The G-Monkey_PS and Helium gDark are the skins that I downloaded and installed but do not appear in the skins folder.
I placed the mmip file of the gDark skin in the skins folder and installed it, but there still is no file that is associated with that skin in the folder.

Thanks for any help

Maybe you're looking at the wrong MediaMonkey installation? You seem to be missing all other skins as well and they should be there. You may want to do a a search *.MSZ on your whole PC.

Did you include hidden files in search?

I ended up finding the skin in my Appdata/Roaming folder

I did not expect it to end up there, but that is where it was

thanks for your help
