If you are like me and have made the switch over to Google Talk because you appreciate its intuitive interface and simplistic design, then this might be a useful tip for you.

To make other chat programs like Yahoo Messenger, look like the ever-so-lovely Google Talk, all you need to do is download a Google Talk skin, and your complex Yahoo messenger days will be over! Just follow these simple steps:

Installing the skin
Click here to download the skin. Extract the contents of the zip and move it to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Shared\Graphics (default installation folder, change it only if you have installed Yahoo Messenger somewhere else)

Activating the skin
Run Yahoo Messenger > Go to Messenger > Change skin…Choose Google Talk from the drop down menu and click OK
