How to use themes in Windows 10 for a more personalized desktop experience



Imagine a large white room with nothing but a boring brown desk and a dull brown chair. It's not funny, isn't it? It is sterile and seems to seep every creative drop from your soul. What you need is a work area that is yours and feels comfortable at home. We'll show you how to use themes in Windows 10 so your computer's virtual desktops aren't boring and sterile.

You acquire Windows 10 themes in four ways: From Microsoft Store, third-party websites, device manufacturers and individuals sharing their themes. Installing themes from the Microsoft Store is your safest bet while new desktops and laptops typically come with a custom wallpaper (at least).
