  1. The Background theme (image) showing Black after changing the AppData/Roaming Location


    I came across the Thread on the forum- have the same problem, Only I have changed location of my AppData/Roaming folder from C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming to E:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming (basically, moved the Roaming folder to drive E via Location tab in the Properties of Roaming folder).


    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/desktop-background-locked-on-solid-colorwindows-10/758a7144-9daf-447c-b8b2-98de595f86bd?page=1


    Above thread suggests to remove the TranscodedWallpaper file (which I did)- and when I try to set any image as a Background, it does nothing, my screen stays Black.

    Also, when I try to go to the Personalise menu (by right clicking on Desktop) and changing the Solid colour to Image- it instantly switches back to Solid colour by itself.


    Any working ideas?

    I have Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit Activated

    and Nvidia Graphics card (if it matters)

    :)

    If wishing to dig further, the first line here is the location of the installed Themes images and the second line is the image currently displayed, will change if selecting Next desktop background:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\RoamedThemeFiles\DesktopBackground

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\CachedFiles

  4. The Background theme (image) showing Black after changing the AppData/Roaming Location

    Win-10 themes keep changing

    Hi,

    Thank you for providing the information.

    • Did you try the steps suggested by Suvarna Govinda above, what was the result?
    As I understand the issue, Themes in Windows doesn't have the options to change on its own. Only the Wallpapers in the themes can change as selected ( Picture, Solid color and Slide Show ).

    I would suggest you to make us understand that if the Wallpapers are changing in Theme which you have selected.

    Below are the steps you can check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + I keys and select Personalization.
    • Select Theme and select the Default theme.
    • Select the Desktop Background below and select the Picture
      and save it and check.
    Please post us back if the issue resolves. We are glad to help you.
