Sorry if this isn't the right section, but I need help installing skins.
Particularly this one https://osu.ppy.sh/forum/t/45541&start=0
I have spent 30 minutes trying to find out how to install it but I cant seem to get it.

Somebody help please? Thanks.

You extract the file and move it into your skin folder.

Ah, files somehow lost their extension (and name).
Download and install 7zip : http://www.7-zip.org/
After installing right click on file -> 7zip -> "extract files here"/ or to your desired destination.

You shouldn't have any problems with 7zip. :3

Same works with broken .osk files (like .rar-compressed ones).

I thought I'll mention this just in case you run into this error:

For a skin to work properly, it must be "installed" in the right place, ie:

osu!\Sking\SkinName

Sometimes the .osk does not extract properly and it create duplicated folders. What you end up with is something like this:

osu!\Skins\SkinName\SkinName

If you try to load the skin in game it'll give you an error like "Osu cannot find SkinName.ini" etc. If this ever happen, go to the Skins\SkinName folder to check if osu somehow created duplicated folder mentioned above. If this is the case, simply move everything from the duplicated folder to where they should belong, so that all the skin elements sit in osu!\Skins\SkinName\

Hey, I have been spending a good amount of time trying to figure out how to install skins as well. For some reason, all the files I download for skins are Adobe Reader files, and it will not allow me to extract them. Please help. I downloaded 7-Zip and everything.
