I recently loaded version 7.3 to our site, I'm trying to find where to style some of the admin pages, as I have text running into each other on pages like Admin/Sitesettings.aspx, etc. We do have a custom skin theme on our site, but i cannot locate anywhere to re-adjust the look & style of the admin pages/templates.
Thanks! Ichthyo

I would go to Admin, Site Settings and specify a standard DNN skin as the default Edit Skin and Edit Container. That's in the Appearance section. Usually, I use a Gravity skin and container.

Admin pages are normal DNN pages since version 5.0.0 - therefore you can set the layout (skin) in the page settings (in the "Advanced Settings" tab). If you want to do this for all admin pages, go to the top level page (that contains the Console module), set the layout there and click the "Copy design" button to apply the the skin to all descending pages.

If you don't find your custom skin make sure it is installed as a host skin, and not as a portal skin in another portal of the same installation.

Happy DNNing!
