To make Windows 10 look cooler, we can change the default theme with a custom theme according to taste. In the previous post, we have provided some recommendations for cool themes for Windows 10 that you can use.

Just choose one of the themes you like and download the file to your computer.

After downloading the theme that you want, then we must install it first so that the theme changes can be applied in Windows. On this occasion howto-bingGo will show you how to change themes in Windows 10 step by step.

To install non-Microsoft themes, or custom themes, we need the help of a preacher's application.

After that, install the application as usual on your computer.


This application only needs to be installed, then leave it alone, the UXThemePatcher application does not need to be opened again.

3. Extract the theme files to the Themes directory in Windows 10

Next, extract the theme file that you downloaded earlier. Then move it to the directory C: / Windows / Resources / Themes.


Theme files have a .Theme extension.

Usually there will also be a folder with the same name as the theme file. Copy the files and folders to the Themes directory as shown above.

If the theme file provides several versions for different Windows 10 builds, then you must first check your Windows 10 version by pressing the Windows + R key => type whenever => OK.

After knowing which version of Windows 10 is on your computer, copy and paste the theme that matches the build version.

4. Open the Personalization menu 

After completing the steps above, the theme of your choice is ready to use. Then we just need to change the theme in Windows as usual. Please follow the steps below.

Click the Windows button => Settings => Personalitazion => Themes => select the theme you want.
