Most of the time the default theme set up by Windows 10 is more than enough. However there are times that you might like to add a bit of your touch by adding a personal photo from a family member or from nature, animals and more. Windows 10 allows you to make these changes in a very simple 3 to 4 step process. If you are familiar with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and or 8.1 then this process will be familiar to you.

In this post you will learn just that, in a few steps you will change your laptop or desktop theme to what ever you like.

Step 3 ) The following image illustrates the different themes you can select for your desktop.

  • My Themes = This will be displayed if you have installed a custom theme.
  • Windows Default Themes = These themes come with Windows when you install the operating system. There is a Get more themes online link for you to get more themes from Microsoft.
  • Installed Themes
  • High Contrast Themes = These are very ugly themes, I don’t recommend them. However if you have few resources like limited Ram then this would improve your Windows performance.


Important: After you upgrade your laptop or desktop from Windows 7 or 8 and you notice issues with all browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Seamonkey then use the steps above to change your theme to one of Windows 10 default themes. I am sure this will improve your browser speed dramatically. There are other troubleshooting tips but that is for another tutorial.
