DIY Tips: How to Make Your Own Theme of Wise Care 365

(only applies to v2 edition)


It would be a pleasure to see your favourite picture become the theme of Wise Care 365.

You know what? You can do it all by yourself! It’s easy & fast!

Let’s get started. :)


Step-1: Get the template files here.

1. Download the skin template files package here


2. Unzip it to a folder called “newskin”.


Step-2: Replace the pictures.

1. Open the “newskin” folder, you’ll find the following files:


(1) skin.ini

(2) skin.png

(3) frame.jpg

(4) MainFrame (folder with 6 files)

(4.1) checkup.png

(4.2) privacy_protection.png

(4.3) system_cleanup.png

(4.4) wise_utilities.png

(4.5) tabbg.png

(4.6) btn.png


2. Please replace the pictures above with the ones you have prepared for the new theme.

(The files with the suffix of “.jpg” & “.png” are pictures.)

This time we only try to make simple skin, so please just simply replace the pictures named “frame.jpg” and “skin.png”.



3. Notice:

a. Please keep your new picture the same name and format as the replaced.

b. The size of the picture “skin.png” cannot be changed. (97*62 pixels)

c. For aesthetic reasons, the sizes of other pictures can be changed but not suggested to. Only original size or minor modification is suggested.


Step-3: Modify the configuration file.

Please open the “skin.ini” file to modify the configuration information needed.

1. Name= (the name of your DIY theme)

2. Author= (the author name you prefer to display)

3. Comment= (introduction of the theme)



Step-4: Wrap the skin files.

1. Select all the files and right-click to open the context menu.

2. Then click “add to archive…”.


3. Please refer to the screenshot. Fix the “archive format” to “zip” and type the file name above it.


4. Set the passward to “12345”.

5. Click “OK” to complete the process.



Step-5: Modify the suffix of the zip file.

Please change the suffix “.zip” to “.wsk” and save the change.



Step-6: Start to use the skin.

1. On your desktop, right-click the icon of Wise Care 365 and click “open file location” on the context menu.


2. Open the folder of “skins” and copy the “.wsk” file from step-5 to this folder.

3. Open Wise Care 365 again, click “Theme”!


4. Voila! Enjoy! :)

Thanks for the tutorial but… for what version it is?


Seems to not work with "Wise Care 365 Pro - 3.1.8"


I tried some things, and first I wanted to extract original skins, mainly the "christmas-2014.wskn" that contain custom buttons and surely all others graphics, but without the password I do nothing

If you have a tip for this I would be really glad, the "custom skin" system that only load a picture is too less for me : )

Thanks !

Oh no… but then, why the *.wskn files work? if I can have access to the content of one of the "highly customized" skins, like then christmas-2014.wskn, or any halloween.wskn, or another skin file that contain all images names, folder directories and the important xml file I am sure that I can make my skin too no?

Like said before, theses files have a password, I can just see the directory with 7zip, but I don't know what is in the xml file, or the sizes of the graphics…

Thanks for the reply anyway, it's what I throught : )
