What is a WMZ file?

A WMZ file is a pre-installed or custom skin that changes the appearance of the Windows Media Player interface, often to match a certain theme. It contains a combination of graphics and JScript code that defines the look and behavior of each skin element. WMZ files are compressed using ZIP compression.

How do I open a WMZ file?

Assuming you have Windows Media Player installed on your PC, you can double-click any WMZ file to apply it as a Windows Media Player skin.

After you apply a skin, it becomes available within Windows Media Player's Skin Chooser. You can access the Skin Chooser by selecting View → Skin chooser from the Windows Media Player menu bar.
