Change Windows Xp Themes II

Good! in the previous comment, there is talk of installing uxtheme patch for the Windows operating system and thus be able to install new themes, then we will show how to download and install a new topic so that you can select the display properties using the operating system itself .

Step 1) We must first find and download files for the item you want to install, then you get some links that will allow you to view sites with themes (also called visual styles are "visual styles") and you can select the want to download:

These are just some of the sites where you can find items for your system, however you can always use google and searching for any of these concepts: visual styles, windows xp themes, xp visual styles, themes for windows, etc. ...

In my case I will select a topic from the site to do this go into the browser and click the site address. on the homepage of the site can be seen in the upper left side a button called "categories" (categories), clicking displays a menu which has the option of selecting Customization (Improvement), clicking on the option shows another menu in which we select the option Skins & Themes (Skins and Themes), clicking again will select the option that says Windows utilities (Utilities Windows) and finally select the option Visual Styles (Visual Styles). Clicking on this option will load a new page which presents the visual styles for windows posted to this site over the last 24 hours, to have more pressing issues to choose the option that says 1 month (1 months) or All Time (all), that show visual styles sent for 1 month or all. Pressing the page is reloaded and show us many more topics. In our case we sought and we will install a theme called Clearlooks Gummy, for doing this when we have located the preview of the theme we are interested click on it and we see a new page which is a preview issue bigger than the previous submission and in the upper left is a download link called download, simply make a click on the link and start the download, if for any reason there is a page of advertising deviantart we push to continue on the download link at the top right of the window called click here to continue to deviantart (click here to continue on deviantart) and immediately starts the download of the item as a compressed file. Since you asked us if we want to open or save this answer has been that we want to store or save the file to a folder on your computer.

Step 2) Once downloaded the file item rioja andalusia decompress in a folder and can see that there is a folder called gummy in which are the following files and folders: gummy.msstyles which corresponds to the file you want to install themes A folder called walls, which are the wallpapers for our desktop (wallpapers) and another folder called shell containing variations of color and shape on the original theme. Well as we need to copy the file gummy.msstyles in the Themes folder, found in the Resources folder and this in turn inside the folder on your hard disk where Windows is installed the system. We now also copy the folder Shell at the same site and with our theme this action should have been installed.

Step 3) in the performance of our new theme is installed, has access to display settings in the section of topics and well in the section on issues or in terms of appearance should appear in a new item called gummy andalusia select it and click on will change the look of the Windows operating system. If for any reason the item is not a possible solution is to go to the Themes folder where we installed the theme and make a double click on the file for the subject in this case gummy.msstyles, this will force windows to load of the item appearing on the display properties dialog box display, which will allow us to change the configuration of the item or accept the subject as it is loaded.

Step 4) Lastly we have simply select a wallpaper, in keeping with our theme, these are walls in the folder that we copied earlier, you must enter that folder and make a click with the right mouse button on the screen that we are interested in, a context menu which has the option to select Set as wallpaper. Remember that many subjects do not have to come accompanied by their corresponding backgrounds, in this case select the one you like more.

Well we finished!

If you have any comments please let us consult for all, thank you very much and best regards.

Change Windows Xp Themes I

The first trick is how you present the items to change in your windows xp. A theme is a graphical presentation of both the windows and the screen in most cases, the theme changes the colors and appearance of windows, this way you can customize the system to your tastes selected the theme of which there are available on the network.

It should be borne in mind that the Windows XP operating system, brings a series of default themes installed, two to be precise, the Windows Classic theme and the moon. If you want to install any new topic they have to acquire the company microsoft. but there is a possibility of using a "software" patch that allows the system of allocating items of windows and use what is called "unsigned themes. The program is called Uxtheme.dll. Good!, Having said that we will begin to see how you change a theme:

Step 1) Firstly, it has access to display properties of the operating system. to perform this action you can use any of the following methods:

  • Click on the Start button, then in the start menu select Control Panel called. Once opened the latter to perform a double click on the option called screen.
  • In one area of the desktop that this "clean", ie has not been clicking on an icon, click the right mouse button and the menu that appears select the option that says Properties.

Both cases present the dialog for the display settings of the system to provide more or less the following:


Step 2) As shown in the picture above, the first tab that shows the dialog is the option of "Themes", which is a list where you can select the item to use, for example, we to change the theme to Windows Classic to do this, click on the button with the arrow in the list of items to be presented as shown in the picture below:

Then simply press the OK button, so the issue is fixed and you can check and change the system. To return to the subject repeat the steps mentioned earlier and this time select the item called "Windows XP", which will come back to leave his team as it was, because the default theme is this.

However, the problem that we mentioned before on the issues we have here, because Windows does not select any other item that is not signed by the company to avoid this situation we have to download and install a program called NeoWin UXTheme Multi-Patch v5.0, when you click on this link shows the page to download the program, which we lose our team, this is the last version but there are other versions for specific systems with SP1 installed and no service pack for Sp2, it is assumed that this release is for any version, see how it is installed.

Step 3) Once downloaded, the file is decompressed using a decompressor same as Winzip or Winrar, the result is a file named UXTheme Multi-Patch 5.5.exe, on which we perform a double click to run it. andalusia run the following screen appears:

uxtheme image program

Where in perfect English, "comes to mean something like the program used to patch Windows XP SP1, SP2 and Windows 2003 in both x86 and x64 versions. on this screen is simply done by clicking on the button that says Patch (patch), and is presented in another display window in which we reported on the operating system that we installed on our computer, as shown in the following image:

second capture uxtheme

In this window we simply click on the button. Andalusia click on the button displays the following dialog box:

warning system

This dialog is a warning that the operating system detected that the program tries to change a dll that uses a different windows that we install ourselves. It has to click on the Cancel button, which will allow the installation of the dll that the program wants to install. It is very possible that this step or the previous presentation of the appearance of your windows has changed, do not worry about this. The next dialog box that presents the program is as follows:

dialog uxtheme

The dialog box simply asks that we confirm that the update that installs the dll program to patch the system, in this dialog box has to be yes. Once the button is presented on screen this other image:

confirmation uxtheme

in which we are asked to wait a little while the program performs the corresponding patch of the operating system, but also tells us that when you have finished patching the system, we will ask to restart the computer, has been pressing the Ok button to continue . andalusia Ok button, it displays the following dialog box:

reboot system

They must make a click on the OK button to complete the installation of the patch and the system reset. Once you have restarted the system and can download and install unsigned themes on our team.
