How do I get the old fashioned Windows XP MuiscBee Default skin? 
My former work Windows 10 laptop is now becoming, the primary player and the  12 year old XP is being retired.
I just today downloaded music bee on the Windows 10, and all the skins styles are unrecognizable.
I have about 3T of music and I usually play by playlists, and the new system is completely alien to me.
Is it possible to revert using the Windows 10 to the simpler skin?

Using a skin that old might not work well with any of the newer MB versions as there have been many, many enhancements to skinning elements. You're talking about a skin that dates back to 2011 or earlier.

In 2011 Steven released a "new" Default skin: https://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=5152.msg28674#msg28674 for MB 1.4. The links in that post are dead, but I have three skins that might be of interest to you: MusicBee Default, MusicBee Classic, and MusicBee Default (original).

Again, I'm not sure if they'll work or not with current version of MB, but if you want to give them a try, PM me and I'll zip them up and load them to MediaFire.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.
