The award-winning NinjaTrader 8 trading platform provides 5 different out-of-the-box skins to personalize your user experience.

Below are 5 built-in skins included with NinjaTrader 8:
Create Your Own Custom Skins
In addition to the 5 prebuilt skins included with NinjaTrader 8, users can also create their own unique skins to change the look and feel of the platform.
The easiest way to customize a skin is to begin with an existing skin file and creating a copy. Users who wish to customize native NinjaTrader skins will need to have a working understanding of XAML, or Extensible Application Markup Language, used for the display of applications in Microsoft Windows.
Skin files for NinjaTrader 8 are located in the following directory: Documents\NinjaTrader 8\templates\Skins
- Select the skin which most closely resembles your desired custom skin, then copy & paste the folder in the same directory, renaming the folder.
- Within the newly created skin folder, open the BluePrint.xaml file in a text editor.
- Edit the XAML tags as desired.
- To view changes, save the file and then close and restart NinjaTrader.
- Once your changes to BluePrint.xaml are satisfactory, repeat this process for each of the other files in the directory.
