Opening SKIN files

Did your computer fail to open a SKIN file? We explain what SKIN files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SKIN files.

What is a SKIN file?

The .skin file extension is most commonly associated with skin files that are used by a variety of ASP.NET software applications. The SKIN files control the look and feel of the application interface, modifying the look and feel of the text boxes, labels and buttons. The SKIN files store information about the colors, layout, fonts and other styles for the interface.

The .skin file extension is also used for InstallShield skin files and Neoplanet skin files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
