Personalize Windows. Desktop themes


Windows themes are a collection of customizations that give a distinctive touch to your desktop from any other, these themes are composited of: the wallpaper(s), window color, sounds and screensaver. And if we've got default config the themes can also change the desktop icons and mouse pointers.

Official themes(Microsoft)

For official themes just have to go to Microsoft site download and run the file to automatically have the theme applied with wallpaper, window color, sounds and icons that contains this.

Unofficial themes

Microsoft to maintain control over his operating system digitally signs his themes, which are validated before installation or startup, due to this limitation can be installed only a few themes published by Microsoft on his site.In order to install themes no-signed by Microsoft is necessary to apply patches to several files and eliminate the checking and so install lots of themes that users distribute freely over the network.

The easiest is to use Universal Theme Patcher to patch the necessary files, you just have to run with Admin privileges and click-on three buttons "Patch" and close program.
