Transform Windows 7 Into Android-Like Look With Android Skin Pack

In the past we have covered Windows 8Mac OS X and Ubuntu transformation packs for Windows 7. Hamed, the developer of these skin packs has now released another Windows 7 transformation pack called the Android Skin Pack. This is the first skin pack meant to fully replicate Android on the desktop.

This skin pack automatically installs all required theme patching applications, along with third party programs to transform your Windows 7 desktop to an Android like interface.

Note: Please bear in mind that such transformation packs are difficult to uninstall and often a system restore point will not revert the changes. Before installing the Android Skin Pack, make sure that you backup your computer to revert the changes (if required). Moreover, make sure that UAC (User Account Control) is disabled.

To get started, launch the EXE file and accept the terms and conditions. You can either go for the quick installation process or choose Custom Install option to uncheck unwanted items. The option to set the skin pack page as your default home page is enabled by default. You can uncheck this option from the Custom installations section. Click Next to continue.
