Although the standard theme of Windows 10 looks fairly modern, the blue colour scheme does not look very cheerful. Or you might prefer a dark theme, and would prefer to set up a grey or black user interface. Fortunately, you can easily change the colours and themes.

  • Right-click the Start Menu and click Settings.
  • Go to Personal Settings.
  • Go to Themes in the left menu.

Download Windows 10 theme

By default, only a few themes are supplied by Microsoft that you can easily activate. As a solution, Microsoft offers to install official themes from the Microsoft Store. Moreover, it is possible to download a Windows theme from unofficial sources, but this is not recommended. They regularly do not function correctly, or adware or even a virus is added unknowingly. You can download a theme from the previously indicated Theme menu:

  • Then click Download more themes in the Microsoft Store
  • Select a free or paid theme that matches your needs
  • Press Download
  • Then click Install
  • Then click Apply

The downloaded theme is now set. You can also find this theme under the Theme menu.

Microsoft regularly issues appropriate themes for the holidays. Think of Halloween, Christmas or Easter themes. You can find these holiday themes for Windows 10 in the official Microsoft Store. The matching colours, sounds and mouse cursors are often included as standard.
