Skins and backgrounds for Opera 6

Simply the Best Internet Experience


NOTE: simple image skinning is not supported in Opera 7. These instructions are valid in Opera 6 only.

Right-click on any image you fancy, and go to the 'skin' submenu! A background skin is applied to the 'workspace', which you'll only see when it's not covered by a maximized document window. A foreground skin replaces the dull gray color of toolbars and such.

Not skinned: menu bar (File Edit View..), scrollbars, window borders, and column headings (as used in mailboxes and hotlist panes).
