How to install a Theme?

Recommended Posts

Homer, I'm going to try and help you once and for all. I'm going to try to make this as simple as possible.

DOWNLOAD THIS FILE

Unzip it, run it, and reboot.

After you reboot you'll see a new theme.

Then, you can go to http://www.themexp.org and download any theme you like. When you download a theme, unzip it to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\

Now, right-click on your desktop and go to properties. Then change themes as you normally would.

This is as easy as i can possibly make it for you. I hope it helps.

Heh. I'm not p***ed off. It's just that so many people have tried to help you and they were unsuccessful. I'm glad I helped :rolleyes:

Sorry about the previous post, I didn't mean to seem like a jerk. :)

You build themes using Style Builder

You'll need some imaging skills (Photoshop, Paintshop, whatever..). I've never tried, but i'm sure it's not easy.

Themes should be unzipped to their own sub-directory. For example, if your theme is named "Sedative", then it should be unzipped to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Sedative

like this...

the "Windows Visual Style File" is the one you want. You can either double-click on it or change your theme through Display Properties. like this...

I hope this finally clears everything up :)
