  1. Windows Basic Theme Files


    I notice wherever there are queries about Windows themes that people get referred to the themes folders as in C:Windows\resources\Themes or C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes.


    I need to find the main Windows theme which I cannot see in there - only in the settings - there only seem to be the Aero themes and any Custom themes I create or download there, but not the basic one, just called Windows, which is the main one on the settings page.


    Most of the themes I have seem to be light colours but the Windows one in the settings is the only one which sets a dark taskbar. Right clicking that only offers the option to delete it and doesn't reveal its path.


    Where is the "real" theme folder? - I have seen many other posts clearly looking for this but never finding it.

    Thanks for any thoughts
    Steve

  2. 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.
